the desired resolution should be 1280x1020 (19 inch). Your X config needs a modeline for that resolution.

Look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and verify that valid modelines are present.
Your driver is built from a shell script? or did you grab an RPM.

Get a root prompt and type

play around with any nvidia-settings

---------- snip xorg.conf -----------
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nvidia"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Videocard0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1280x1024"
