You can use the program PowerStrip for PC that lets you set custom timings and resolutions beyond what is supported via the driver/windows.

I'm a little surprised these CRTs still work well after 8 years usage. My experience with CRT monitors was that they suffered from phospher degradation worse than CRT televisions do; all that high Hz progressive scan white light? I guess you could use something like a GammaX unit for gamma correction if there is no way to correct the source signal for if/when this happens.
I don't know about video cards today but most video cards back in the CRT era did a very poor job at VGA output quality and had very dumbed down tools for tweaking CRT resolutions if any. The discerning would buy Matrox cards for their high quality VGA output and driver settings. I always found I could get a viewable resolution one step higher than usual with a monitor by fine-tuning in the advanced settings. I presume a tool like powerstrip reproduces that functionality?
