Having problems getting hzync and vync right on LCD


I recently went and picked up a new Viewsonic Optiquest Q9b to replace my old 21" crt monitor that was on its way out. The new monitor works great in windows but in linux I get these faint weavy lines which can only be seen well on a black screen or when there is lots of text on the screen. They almost look like refresh lines. I can't see to find any info on what the proper hsync and vysnc should be for this particular monitor. Any help would be appricated.

According to the info on NewEgg, the proper settings are Horizontal = 30-80, Vertical = 55-75. What do you have in your xorg.conf file (which will be in the /etc/X11 directory)?
