New Monitor Weirdnesses or how do I get Xorg to pay attention to my xorg.conf file?

VESA defined modes are
- 320×200
- 640×400
- 640×480
- 800×600
- 1024×768
- 1280×1024

No idea whether the vesa driver supports non-vesa modes, but did you try using nouveau instead of vesa?

/var/log/Xorg.0.log will tell you the servers opinion on what you added to your config.
