Try to toy with xrandr - it takes care of all resolution/multiple screen stuff pretty much obsoleting settings in xorg.conf. You may need to add appropriate modelines to your Monitor section in xorg.conf if EDID returned by monitor is wrong and states lower max resolution than possible (I had this problem once it was a bug in xf86-video-ati).
