It should be something like:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                   Depth        24
                   Modes        "1024x768"
        SubSection "Display"
                   Depth        16
                   Modes        "1024x768"

You should change the Device and Monitor names to match the ones you're
using for them.
