I looked for this recently and it was tricky to find good info. What
you may find easier is to run X with logverbose 6 and then look in the
log file. That will give you details on all the modes that it tries
and which ones are valid for your setup and which ones aren't. It's a
pretty big file - approx 3000 lines in my case, but it really helped
me track down which modes to use from the pool.

PS - when you find a mode pool resolution you're happy with, you
specify it in your xorg.conf as, for example, 1280x720_60 - the _60 is
the frequency. Have a look at mine at
