Cant Set 1024*768 resolution in fedora 11

This is my very first post to the forum ,so if i my mess up here please let me know. Now coming to the problem i am using fedora 11 with a nividia 8600GT graphic card on my desktop, but when i try to change the resolution i am able to select between two resolutions i.e. 800*600 and 640*480. I wanted to change it to 1024*768 but cannot as there is no option available. I had updated my systems and have installed the necessary packages related to nvidia i have attactched my xorg.conf and the nvidia bug report file.Packages i have installed are

Code:
rpm -qa |grep nvidia

kmod-nvidia-2.6.30.10-105.2.23.fc11.i686.PAE-190.53-1.fc11.i686

i have tried using "setup" "system-config-display" and the nvidia display settings it still remains on 800*640 and wont go higher also i know the graphic card and the monitor support higher resolution.Finally whenever i run quake i get an error Your system currently is not capable of hardware accelerated 3D.I thought installing the nvidia packages would have taken care of it. What am i doing wrong here i cant figure it out ,any help would be appreciated.

This is a plain guess, but why not try to manually set the Modes line in Section "Screen"
Code:
    Modes       "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"

However, this won't solve the 3D accel. problem.

i actually did set the mode manually ,all it does is enables an option of 1024x768 and when selected,x server needs to be restarted. Upon restart it switches back to 800*600 and that option is gone. I googled about this on the net , i think its a livna issue. P.S. For the 3d acceleration part on the graphic card i found a newer version than installed and that provided by the repositories , on nvidia's site. Will need to recompile it for the kernel.
