Default Monitor HELP PLEASE!! Anyone own a CHIMEI 22" Widescreen LCD?

Hello, I just got my 22" Widescreen LCD CHIMEI and hookit it up through DVI cord in my Geforce FX5200 and turned it on. Everything worked fine but the thing is that the resolution 1680x1050 is not only the MAX resolution of my monitor but it is its NATIVE resolution. For some reason I cant switch my monitor to 1680x1050...I can switch it to 1440x900....

At first I thought it was my Video Card not being able to support that Resolution but then I went onto Newegg.com and check 5 different brands of FX5200's and they ALL say Max Resolution 2048 x 1536...

Here is an example...

Here is my monitor!

Now if the Max Resolution of the video card is 2048x1536 then why cant my monitor of a Max and Native res of 1680x1050 get that high?

I have tried to custom make a res of 1680x1050 and when it goes to switch to it all i see are lines...please someone help me..
