Dell E177FP xorg settings

This is not really a question. Just posting this so people don't have to go through the ordeal of dealing with Dell Tech support like I did. I am still having trouble with the Grub display. Getting this mode not supported. Not a big deal for me since I boot to a single OS/kernel.

HorizSync 70.0 - 80.0
VertRefresh 66.0 - 76.0

Highest supported mode is 1280-1024
Not the 1280-960 that Fedora seems to default too.

You also once in want to adjust your gamma and push it way up. In KDE just right click on empty space, use configure desktop. Go down to display. Click on the gamma tab. Then use the slider to move it up. Otherwise some apps will be especially dark, SDL apps in particuler.
