Default Hardy Heron AMD64 NVIDIA (6 Series) 22' Widescreen LG Resolution Problem

Hi!

I recently made a clean Hardy Heron AMD64 install. Is I said, I'm
using a NVIDIA 6 Series Card and a 22' Widescreen LG L225WS Screen.
The issue here is that I cannot manage to set the native screen
resolution which is 1680x1050. The default xorg.conf file runs at
800x600 max resolution, I thought installing nvidia restricted driver
would fix it, so I installed it from the repositories, the funny thing
is that it actually made it worse, getting 640x480 max (but I got
compiz to work!).

I tried several things, first in nvidia-settings X Server Display
Configuration i tried changing Panning to my desired resolution in
advanced mode (the resolution combobox only showed 640x480 and
320x240), this didn't work.

I also tried displayconfig-gtk. I could chose the right resolution
here and even test it but pushing "keep this configuration" button
changed it back (and no change to xorg.conf was made).

I have to say that everything worked flawlessly in Gutsy Gibbon AMD64.

Here is my original xorg.conf file (resulted max 800x600 resolution)


# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.

# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Here's another xorg.conf file that i tried (resulted max 640x480 resolution)

I would be really thankful if anyone gave me some guidelines.
