I installed the FX 3700 driver (177.82)  and I now have a true 1920x1200 
desktop - it looks great !

However now I lost all my GL screensavers (none of 'em work) and no desktop 
effects.  Here's the new xorg.conf (below).

Anyone have any thoughts ?

Note: I tried changing "vesa" in the Device section to "nvidia" and I get the 
old resolution again.

Thanks in advance...
