Hardware Upgrade: Widescreen Monitor

I've received the monitor, and doing sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
mostly worked in getting 1440x900 working. It would not work using the
official NVIDIA drivers though, and I had to switch to what I I believe to
be the generic drivers 'nv'.

Since switching, GNOME feels and acts clunky. Does anyone have and tips for
getting the higher resolutions working with the official NVIDIA drivers?
