Default twin view problems with GeForce4 MX440 - Dual RGB

I just bought a PCI GeForce4 MX440 video card with twin VGA. I have twin view working, except its doing 1600x1200 on one monitor and 1280x1024 on the other monitor. I would really like to run them both at the same resolution. Following is my XF86Config file:

Default

Change your metamodes line to:

Code:
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024"
and it will run @ 1280x1024
