Well you certainly will get the higher resolutions that you want. The
nv driver is somewhat limited in this regard.

Hrm, so what is the error when you try to build the nvidia module from
the nvidia website?  I am guessing that you have already installed the
kernel headers from the kernel version that you are running?
