I used to be able to get nv to do 1280x1024, with my 6600LE graphics card. I could never convince it to do 1600x1200, the native resolution of my LCD panel, though. Claimed to be limited by BIOS setting, whatever that means. There was, and is, however, a funky booting issue: sometimes nv would not get the card set up right, and all I would see was blocky-wrong-raster-ish screen noise. That would go away if I switched to vesa mode (which has always worked reliably for me) and back again. Sadly that fix doesn't work since the last upgrade (from 7.2 to 7.3), seemingly, so I'm stuck with vesa at 1280x1024, which is tollerable for my purposes, given how fast the processors are. Actually, I don't have that at the moment, either: something broke GNOME at the ORB level, seemingly, after I upgraded to RELENG_7... I'm fighting with portupgrade at the moment... Hopefully it'll all come good again once it's been re-built...
