Ubuntu - how to set the max / correct resolution for Nvidia cards and LCD monitor

After installing a new display Nvidia card on Ubuntu linux, it did not detect the correct resolution available on the monitor. Rather, it uses the wrongly (normally lower resolution) detected resolution, which resulted poor display. After checking out /var/log/Xorg.0.log, it reported correct max resolution detected both on the Nvidia display card & monitor. Below is the resolution :

- install the Nvidia display card configuration tool by running :
apt-get install nvidia-settings

- run the command :
in gnome-terminal or press Alt-F2 to run the common in Ubuntu GUI

- choose the correct resolution listed within the Nvidia settings page.

Voila !!!
