I have the following:
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS
Monitor : Westinghouse LCD Monitor Model: LCM-22w3 50-60Hz
Operating System: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

The video card was properly detected using nvida-settings; however, the monitor was being reported as a generic CRT. The max resolution I could really get was 1024x768; this was extremely frustrating on a 22" wide screen monitor. The X.ORG autodetection did not properly detect my monitor;
