The only part of a modeline that will affect CPU usage is the
frequency, other than that CPU is only affected by the contend being
decoded, scaling is done by the video card.

Proper modeline for an LCD or plasma with a non standard resolution
(as many of them use) will only affect how your tv scales the input.
Again though, you can use the modepool "1368x768_60" as a starting
point, or read the EDID modeline using nvidia-settings in the 9xxx
series drivers.
