if you adjust your monitor frequencies in the XF86Config-4 file, it'll choose the most optimal Hz for the resolution...

I cannot do it for you, as only you can see what your monitor exactly supports.

you need the frequency ranges

in kHz and Hz, look at your monitor manual en the XF86Config manual

But i do not know how to turn on framebuffer and which framebuffer to use (vesafb or rivafb). I have heared that there are some problems with nvidia cards and framebuffers ....
