I struggled for ages to figure out the right modeline to use for my  
new LCD TV (1366x1024). Anyway I  eventually found out that X11 ships  
with a utility called gtf, and it worked out my modeline perfectly  
for me first time, just run :-

gtf x y refresh

So gtf 852 480 60 I would think would be good for you, but you may  
need a different refresh rate, check the manual :-

   # 848x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz; pclk: 31.49 MHz
   Modeline "848x480_60.00"  31.49  848 864 952 1056  480 481 484  
497  -HSync +Vsync

You will see its rounded down to 848 x 480, thats because 852 is not  
divisible by 8 (which the nvidia drivers require)
