Default Gforce FX5200 in Ubuntu Linux Refresh Rate

I am running a Gforce FX5200 in Ubuntu Linux and I am having major problems. I am trying to setup a 1280x960 screen with a refresh rate of 70hz. I made a modeline for this resolution and refresh rate, but it is not being accepted. Below I have listed my xorg.conf file:

Is there any thing I need to change or add to get the modeline value I generated to work. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
