Default Setting my screen to 1080 by 810 resolution

I have an athlon workstation running Fedora Core2 and I want to hook it up to an HDTV through the DVI connector, to do this I need to set the screen resolution to 1080by810. I added "1080x810" to the xorg.conf file in the relevant color depth field. When I ran startx it still came up in a poor resolution. Then I rebooted and things came up almost flawlessly on the TV, but the display resolution in the display settings was still reported as 640 by 480. Then, without a reboot, or a reset of X, I changed video modes on the TV. When I cam back it looked as it had at 640by480. So what I am saying is, I can't really ascertain if my Video card is working and the TV is poorly realizing the image, of if the Computer is not displaying properly.
