Intel 950 and 1680x1050 resolution

Hi guys

I've just managed to get a shuttle barebone, model SD30G2B. So far the
box has been doing very well and I am quite happy with it.

I am thinking of buying a nice TFT monitor that supports 1680x1050 but
I am worried that this wouldn't work with the graphics card. IT has an
intel Graphics Media 950 (GMA950). More precisely, lspci spits this:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

I've been googling for a while but results seem contradictory. Some
people seem to have it working[1] an other don't. So, is there anyone
here knows about this graphics card supporting such resolution? I am
worried because on windows the driver supports 1280x1024, 1400x900 and
1600x1200, but not 1680x1050, and don't know if this is because the
card doesn't support it, or the driver or that it detects that my
monitor doesn't supports it (which doesn't as it is an old CRT model).

Any help/hints/suggestions on this would be appreciated.
