OP beware, please do not try something like Ralf's xorg.conf yourself.
For a start, it specifies the radeon driver; but it also declares modelines
that may not be appropriate to your monitor, which in extreme cases could
result in hardware damage, apparently.
Modern X should not require any xorg.conf at all, with all relevant information
automatically detected, and the goal here should be to get you to a desired
resolution without introducing one.
