I replaced this section :
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "vesa"
EndSection


with this:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
        BoardName      "Quadro FX 3700M"
EndSection


and the resolution reverts back to the old resolution where the system reports 
it as 1920x1200 but it's clearly something more like 1280x800

at this point I'd rather have true 1920x1200 than glx effects if I can't have 
both. However if anyone has any thoughts I'd appreciate any input on how to 
get both.

Below are the 2 config files:


This one (my current xorg.conf) gives me "true" 1920x1200

This one gives me the glx screensavers and desktop effects but I only get about 
1280x800 screen resolution even though the system (xrand) reports that it's 
running at 1920x1200
