What us being reported in /var/log/XFree86.0.log? Anything useful?
I used to get stuff like:
(WW) (1920x1200_60.00,Generic Monitor) mode clock 193.16MHz exceeds
DDC maximum 170MHz
if you have read-edid installed you can try as root
get-edid | parse-edid and see what DDC information is being sent by
I peeked at the Radeon site:
NOTE: resolutions are limited by the performance of the attached
monitor. DVI-I monitors will be limited to 1600x1200.
This under the 16:9 section, but hopefully its not the problem.
