Thanks to you both (Gord, Alan) for the response. It sounds
encouraging. The main reason I asked is that the resolution wasn't
listed as available in the drop-down list in the nvidia-settings app.
I wondered if that list was simply the native resolution of my current
monitor (1900x1200) together with all standard resolutions below it --
rather than being a definitive list of supported res. From Alan's
experience, it sounds like it is :)

Again, many thanks.
