Default 8600 gts tv out resolution

i had a evga 7600 gt, but the caps blew, so i upgraded to a evga 8600 gts. tv out worked great on the 7600. being the same maker, and just a small upgrade i figured i would not need to change anything in my xorg.conf as far as tv out goes.(yes i remade the nvidia driver module just in case)

my problem is the desktop its showing(seperate screen), is larger than the tvs viewing screen, like i have the resolution set too high, i change it down from 1024x768 to 800x600, and the icons grow, but are still hanging off the screen.

nvidia version 180.18
here is my xorg.conf
