Maybe you need to find the exact model of your PC and find out from the manufacturer or on the web, the exact specs of your PC, so that you pick the right ones during Linux installation.

Why not just try one? You can always run the xf86config program later.

I try all kinds of options and I run the xorgconfig to fix them but whenever I'm done I get screen found but config not possible.
