Question Manually selecting Refresh rate w/ nv Drivers installed

I am constantly having a problem finding out how to or where to edit 'xorg.conf' to manually specify a refresh rate of 75 at 1280x1024. Without the nVidia drivers installed, I can select up to 85 Hz when running at 1280x1024, but with the nVidia drivers installed, the max I can select in the KDE control panel is an eye disturbing 60 Hz. Here is a paste of my "Monitor" section.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "monitor1"
VendorName "Hewlett-Packard"
ModelName "HP M900 19-inch Display"
HorizSync 31-95
VertRefresh 50-150

# TV fullscreen mode or DVD fullscreen output.
# 768x576 @ 79 Hz, 50 kHz hsync
ModeLine "768x576" 50.00 768 832 846 1000 576 590 595 630

# 768x576 @ 100 Hz, 61.6 kHz hsync
ModeLine "768x576" 63.07 768 800 960 1024 576 578 590 616
EndSection


And here is the "Screen" section.


Section "Screen"
Identifier "screen1"
Device "device1"
Monitor "monitor1"
DefaultColorDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"
Depth 15
Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection
EndSection



Can someone please tell me what line I need to edit or add to force a 75 Hz refresh rate running at 1280 x 1024. The CRT is capable of 85 at that resolution.

I believe adding:
Modes "1280x1024_75"
to your "Display" subsection should do the trick.
