How do I tell the system what my monitor/video card are?

I have installed Suse 9.1 and it works, but it is using generic values for my monitor (Dell 1800fp Ultrascan) and video card (GeForce FX 6800). Neither of my models were in the drop-down lists. How do I inform the system what I have so as to make best use of my equipment?

As for the GeForce, you need to install the nVidia drivers.
