Question on monitor resolution

http://forums.opensuse.org – He there I posted earlier about a resolution issue on my laptop, while I'm tinkering with that, I've tossed 11.2 on a desktop I've got laying around. I've got a different issue with this one, so I figured I'd start i new thread. Now, I've got the driver's for the 7600GT in this system installed ok. I can run nvidia-settings and view the Nvidia X server settings window. So all seems to be find on that front. Like the my laptop issue, I'm stuck at a low resolution. However unlike the laptop, it appears to be the monitor that isn't set up properly. What's the best course of action for this situation? I'm assuming my options are, -Finding proper linux driver's for the monitor? -Loading generic monitor driver's that support this monitor's native resolution of 1280x1024. -Going through the process of creating an xorg.conf with sax2 and specifying monitor information there. Am I on the right track with any of these solutions? I get the feeling that creating an xorg.conf might work. But I'd like to know if there's a way to do it by installing drivers first. I'm a little surprised that SUSE correctly identified the screen on my old laptop, but is stumped by this NEC LCD1735NXM. Thanks very much. (Distributions)
