EDID Problems

I have a NVIDIA 9500 GT running the official NVIDIA driver. Every time I
start my xserver the display is 800x600. It seems that the EDID is
either corrupt or not being read correctly. This computer is a dual-boot
with Win-XP and the latest Debian. Everything works perfect under
Windows, but the display is incorrect in Linux. Here is a snippet I
grep'ed from the xorg-server log: http://pastebin.org/4943 and here is
my xorg.conf: http://pastebin.org/4944 . This really has me stumped. As
you can see the display is supposed to be set to 1280x1024. 

Thanks for any help,
