Checkout xvidtune. Setup the monitor until you are happy, in windows.
Then, boot into X, play around with the screen (using it, not the dials)
and it'll eventually give you a "modeline". You can then use this modeline
in your /etc/X11/XF86Config to give you a mode the exact same as in
However, it's fairly complex to do...and becareful with xvidtune - you
can overclock your monitor & blow it, if you aren't careful.
