The problem is that the intel graphic bios does not report the 16:10 modes.

With the G945 chipset you cant try the resolution915 package to set the 
correct resolution. Another possibility can be the i810-modesetting driver 
from unstable.

Since I have a G965 I couldn't use any of theses, so I have not tested them. I 
have backported the current version of the intel modesetting driver (and the 
current intel agp driver). With these backported drivers I am successfully 
running 1920X1200.
