This is my entry for my Dell 2405FPW:

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Monitor1"
	DisplaySize	520 330		# yes, I measured it
	HorizSync	30.0-81.0
	VertRefresh	56.0-76.0
	Mode "1920x1200"
		DotClock 154.0
		HTimings 1920 1968 2000 2080
		VTimings 1200 1203 1209 1235
	Option		"DPMS"

I can't remember if I needed the frequencies-- I had some initial problems
using the DVI input and nvidia not detecting things correctly, but then I
added this to the Device section:

	Option	"ConnectedMonitor"	"DPF-1"
