From log file I saw the preferred mode -1680x1050"x59.9 from edid was found in probed mode list. however it is strange that even if in driver I set the mode(1680x1050"x59.9) type as  (M_T_DRIVER | M_T_PREFERRED), xorg still chose 1024x768 from default mode list. Yes I can set up preferred option in xorg.conf but I don't want to pollute xorg.conf, what else i need to do?

Something else must be going on.  Please post your xorg log.
