Im not sure i understand what i need to do to get x server to recognize that my two monitors have higher resolutions, and how do i set them? For instance i can set 1360x768 just fine on both monitors but i know they can go up to 1400x1200.

xorg.conf is as follows:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Fri Apr 9 10:35:18 UTC 2010
