Configuration has changed a bit for randr 1.2 capable drivers.  you
can add custom modes at runtime using the xrandr --newmode and xrandr
--addmode commands, or you can add modelines to your config file,

the page references intel cards, but the configuration options apply
to any randr capable driver.
