Re: specifying depth of 16 & above in xfree86-4
Well I have the same card
you can download the latest drivers from nvidia.com
and ran xf86cfg -textmode (it crashes if not in textmode)
and then set your own parameters for the monitor and the card
I think that X does not support 24 bpp for nvidia so you should set the
default color to be 16bpp
Ofcourse you can manually edit XF86Config ;-)

Did you set HorizSync and VertRefresh ranges in your config file? If
you haven't set them Xserver can take defaulted values which are too
restrictive. 16 and 24 depth modes requires quite high values of
HorizSync and VertRefresh.
