Or you could use the NV driver. And with that i mean the latest NV driver which works great with nvidia cards.
update your current Xf86-video-nv.... with this "xf86-video-nv-2.1.2-i486-1.tgz" file in /slackware/slackware-12.0/patches/packages/
Personally i'm very satisfied with the standard NV driver, instead of the binairy nvidia driver. They really did a great job.
I'm using the nv driver with a geforce7600GT @ 1650x1050

The NVIDIA driver Version: 100.14.11 has this problem.
I don't know if in the latest driver this problem has been corrected.
Even if the only resolution is 1680x1050 the X loads 1280x1024.
Solution : Just add this line in the device section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf .
Option "ModeValidation" "NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck"
