I have never done that - per definition, it _should_ always
work with autodetection magic (and then load the "nvidia"
driver). However, specific settings seem to work better
when you have an autogenerated xorg.conf file, and you
can apply custom alterations to that file if you need.
The idea of partial configuration files is that those
will override only given aspects of the autodetected
configuration (like forcing a specific screen size that
deviates from what the autodetection thinks is right).

Again, nvidia might be such a case that's a little
different from everything else. :-)
