I had a problem with 1680x1050 a few days ago, too. What you need in the first 
place is a modeline in your "Monitor" section. For my NEC MultiSync 
LCD2070WNX, it looks like this:

Modeline "1680x1050 at 60" 154.20 1680 1712 2296 2328 1050 1071 1081 1103

To calculate a modeline for your monitor, you can also try the XFree86 
Modeline Generator:

You should then add this to your SubSection "Display":

Modes "1680x1050"

Try this.
