    You do not need new drivers, you need proper (=nvidia) drivers. There's a lot of posts on this matter as well as openSUSE wiki. What yu describe is typical for NVIDIA cards not having the proprietary driver, please google for openSUSE NVIDIA HOWTO

    1) Which tool were you trying to use (eg xvidtune)?

    2) What type of monitor? CRT? Resolution?

    3) Are you using nvidia driver? If using nvidia driver, did you try nvidia-settings utility?

    4) Post output of this command from terminal:

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    No, you don't, you use the free "nv"-driver with restricted functionality.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    BoardName "GeForce 7600 GT"
    BusID "1:0:0"
    Driver "nv"
    Identifier "Device[0]"
    Option "usevnc" "no"
    Screen 0
    VendorName "NVidia"
    EndSection

    Thanks for the info supplied. Have a look at this NVIDIA HOW TO. It will show you how to install the proprietary driver.

    BTW, your monitor specs from here show:

    Max Resolution 1280 x 1024 / 66Hz
    Recommend Resolution 1024 x 768 / 85Hz
    H-Scanning Frequency 30 - 71 kHz
    V-Scanning Frequency 50 - 160 Hz
