Im glad you solved your problem.

And to all those that said forget monitor drivers, you don't need them : this is proof that monitor drivers are in fact very important because they contain information that tells the OS which resolutions the monitor supports.

Not so sure it wasnt just the reboot because your default resolutions are shown - only the non recommended resolutions dont get shown with the default driver - if you want to see you could roll back the driver, but it doesnt matter only if your curious.
