Are you sure that running Xorg without any modes will give the highest
resolution your *monitor* can handle? Wouldn't it be your video card? I
have a few machines with high-end graphics cards, but two of my monitors
can't do above 1024x768. When using the livecd, running Xorg without any
modes always gives me a 'Input not supported' error because Xorg is trying
to output in a higher resolution.
