You may want an /etc/X11/xorg.conf which is something like this:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier   "1905FP"
    Modeline "1280x1024_60.00"  109.00  1280 1368 1496 1712  1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync
    HorizSync     30-81
    VertRefresh   56-76

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor       "1905FP"
    DefaultDepth   16
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth      16
        Modes     "1280x1024_60.00"

The Modeline information could come from /var/log/Xorg.0.log I suppose,
but I used cvt to generate it.

   cvt 1280 1024
