Default Set 480p output for TV - beginner

I'm trying to use my television as a display but I can't output to the TV's native resolution. The resolution I want is 852x480 (480p) but the closest I can set it to in the nvidia-settings GUI is 720x480. Where can I add this resolution? I'm not sure where I should add this in my xorg.conf file (attached). I'm a beginner to this so any help would be appreciated.

That cannot be done. The TV output only supports a very limited set of resolutions.
When your TV has a VGA input, use that.

Why would VGA matter? I've connected it via DVI right now. Won't I lose some video quality by switching to vga/s-video?

The config file gave me the impression that you use TV-OUT.

Well is that part of the problem? Like I said, I'm connected via the DVI port.
