Doesn't look too bad, I have

        Mode "1280x854" # D: 79.815 MHz, H: 51.963 kHz, V: 60.003 Hz
                DotClock 79.816
                HTimings 1280 1296 1408 1536
                VTimings 854 855 858 866
                Flags    "-HSync" "-VSync"

Nothing but 1280x854 is supposed to work right now.
