You almost certainly do not need to mess with /etc/X11/xorg.conf any further. The radeon module checks with the monitor itself for the best supported mode and switches to that mode 99% of the time. Unless the monitor appears to be displaying at the wrong resolution or frequency, you should leave it alone.

Then I'll proceed with installing GNOME. Thank you very much for your time.
