When I replaced the 7300LE card with the 9600GT, I saw no reason to use

driver automatically kicks in, with full 1680x1050 resolution.

Still bad driver :-)
Probably xorg.conf needs few parameters to tell nvidia driver that it should
use DFP instead of CRT. Nvidia driver can recognize:
Option "Metamodes" "1680x1050"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"

While this seems to fly in the face of logic and reason, I don't care,
so long as I can get out of Windows, back to my favourite distro.

I was delayed to post what I found in Xorg.99.log.
The nv driver from xorg.conf.install (failsafe mode) had a problem to detect
monitor, so I tried to find option to disable that detection, and set modes
manually. Problem is to find option that is appropriate because it changed
and it is documented, but deep in readmes. The latest nvidia driver would
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
that would do exactly what is needed.
