Default Re: NVidia and XRandR 1.2

I don't really need it so much, even KDE 3.5.9 screen config window still doesn't support XRandR 1.2. But I would like it because of the "PreferredMode" xorg.conf option.
Right now by default it starts with the max available resolution... but that resolution on my computer is also 60Hz, so I preffer a lower 1024x768 resolution at 85Hz. And right now to make it start at 1024x768 I need to completly remove support for higher resolutions... that I don't want for my desktop, but perhaps I want them for other things.
