Thanks Alex I did the refresh rate and mode line you
suggested and it looks A LOT better.  Size is perfect,
text is 90% of what I want it to be, the screen is
skewed to the right a little but I have an "AUTO"
button that shifts it to the exact center...this might
be a little annoying booting between windows and Linux
but I can live with it (and it might be windows who is
skewed to the left(;).  

I also tried the program you suggested and I couldn't
find an export option, I downloaded the latest version
3.7  It gives
a lot of info, I'll post pics on the website shortly
maybe I can manually tweak the modeline perfect.  I'm
going to read this man page and see what I can come up

Roland, I might try to upgrade the driver just because
it's good to be current and I heard something about 3D
support...but I'm a little reluctant because sometimes
upgrades cause problems!

Thanks guys,
