As long as you set the correct refresh rate and monitor size/resolution, it
should be ok.  If you ran with higher resolutions on other monitors, then I
would doubt it's the card itself.  More than likely it's the refresh rate or
an incorrect Horiz/Vert frequency.  I would reconfigure the xserver and try
some different settings.  One is bound to work.  If you have the full specs
of the monitor in the manual, then do an advanced config and set all of the
parameters by hand.
