In 720p, the right dimensions for my GUI are 1152x672+64+25.
In 1080i, the GUI dimensions are 1717x993+104+36.

I'm currently running in 720p with the GUI dimensions manually set.  The
overscan isn't completely consistent, but it's within a few pixels.

Of course, if I were using a VGA cable instead of a DVI cable, I would
use the magic timings X modes to have a mode without overscan.  Alas,
that doesn't work with DVI.
