    I got a new dell 2405fpw which has a native resolution of 1900x1200. My video card is a pny geforce fx 5600 ultra (I know it's old) with the latest nvidia drivers installed. I have also installed the monitor driver available on dell's site, but the maximum resolution I can select is only 1600x1200. I have even tried entering a custom resolution in the settings after installing coolbits and still no dice, it says that resolution is invalid. Does the 5600 not support wuxvga or am I missing something? I've looked everywhere online and found very little. Please help.

    Are you connecting it using analog or DVI?

    DVI, when I connected it just now with analog it does 1900x1200, but I wish I could do full res in dvi mode because it looks better
