Also could be that you have your monitor installed as a default plug and play moitor , you may need to install the specific drivers on the disc that came with your monitor.

All the video cards that I have had, if it didn't support a certain resolution, the selection wasn't there. I beleive the problem to be with either the video card driver, or the monitor driver. Check into those and see if it doesn't help you out.
