[mythtv-users] Powerstrip modeline not working

I've managed to figure out how to start X with a higher log level and
this has shed some light on the problem. Looks like I can't get higher
than 800x600 because of HorizSync out of range issues - from the log:

(II) NVIDIA(0):   Validating Mode "1024x768":
(II) NVIDIA(0):     1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):     Mode Source: X Server
(II) NVIDIA(0):       Pixel Clock      : 65.00 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):       HRes, HSyncStart : 1024, 1048
(II) NVIDIA(0):       HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1184, 1344
(II) NVIDIA(0):       VRes, VSyncStart :  768,  771
(II) NVIDIA(0):       VSyncEnd, VTotal :  777,  806
(II) NVIDIA(0):       H/V Polarity     : -/-
(WW) NVIDIA(0):     Mode is rejected: HorizSync (48.4 kHz) out of range
(WW) NVIDIA(0):     (31.500-37.900 kHz).

And, yes, my xorg.conf contains these lines:
    HorizSync       31.5 - 37.9
    VertRefresh     50.0 - 70.0

But they got put there as a default by whatever created xorg.conf in
the 1st place. I'm not sure what to do now. Should I just change the
Horizsync range - or is this dangerous?
