Our nvidia driver doesn't support chips this new yet - so you're going to be stuck with VESA mode until it does. VESA is limited to video modes offered by your card's VESA BIOS.

These days, the VESA BIOS in most cards is usually pretty bare-bones, and nvidia especially doesn't put a lot of effort into theirs it seems. You can see at the top of the syslog when the VESA mode list is queried, that 1280x1024 is the largest option offered by your card.

Basically, this ticket should become an enhancement request to add support for your card to the nvidia driver - otherwise you can also try a different video card.

This card was introduced in 2010 and will not be supported by the current nVidia driver (which supports upto/excluding G80). The architecture is quite different from before..

You're currently running in VESA mode, which on your system supports upto 1280x1024 in the card's BIOS apparantly.

Feature request actually. A new seperate driver should support this card. No error in current driver.
