I am far from an expert but I have been twiddling with this myself.  The first 
paramater 26.625 on your mode line needs to be in the HorizSync range  it is

Change the first paramatere to  be in the HorzSync range (or adjust the 
HotrzSync range) and restart X and then look at the Xorg.0.log to see if the 
720x480 is acceptable.  Then if its acceptable try to use it.
