Default Re: xorg.conf has wrong name fo rmy card

The "identifier" within the section "Device" is completely arbitrary. You can make it whatever you want, as long as you also change the "Device" name in the screen section. For example

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "eVGA 7600GT"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option "RenderAccel" "true"
    Option "CursorShadow" "true"
    Option "Coolbits" "1"
Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "eVGA 7600GT"
    Monitor     "Dell P991"
    DefaultDepth 24
I could change "eVGA 7600GT" to "Super Whizbang Geforce 9000", as long as I did it in both sections.

Thank you for your time,
Frank Russo
