Getting 1680x1050 resolution on Dell 2007WFP monitor

I just purchased a new Dell Dimension 9200c that has an Intel G965 chipset
with  onboard Intel GMA X3000 video.  I've installed Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft)
via a network installation because my CDROM is not recognized.  It
configured the i810 video driver with a resolution of 1280x 1024 @ 75 Hz.
My monitor is the Dell 2007WFP (widescreen) which supports 1680x1050
resolution, but I can't figure out how to achieve it.  Is there anything I
can do to my xorg.conf file in order to get the higher resolution?  My
xorg.conf contains these Monitor and Screen sections:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "DELL 2007WFP"
        Option          "DPMS"
        HorizSync       30.0-83.0
        VertRefresh     56.0-76.0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "Intel Corporation Intel Default Card"
        Monitor         "DELL 2007WFP"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           1
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           4
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           8
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           15
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           16
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24
                Modes           "1680x1050 at 60" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x7685" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection


Thanks for any help you can provide.
