xvidtune->xf86config issues

Hi, Ive been searching around but basically I cant seem to get my xvidtune settings in my xf86config-4.
Everything I have seen based on this just sais add Modeline before the xvidtune output under the monitor section in my xf86config. I have tried so many different times. Another thing I read said to delete unused resolutions so I did and just used my 1024x768 out put with Modeline before it. Still didnt save my adjustments. Then for fun I deleted everything under the "Monitor" section and X still booted the same. So im not sure if Im even in the right xf section... anyway here is the monitor section in my xf86config-4 generated by the Ati drivers fglrxconfig :
# **********************************************************************
# Monitor section
# **********************************************************************

# Any number of monitor sections may be present

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
HorizSync 31-70
VertRefresh 55-120
Option "DPMS"
# Modeline "1024x768" 94.50 1024 1080 1176 1376 768 769 772 808 +hsync +vsync

And here is my xvidtune output :

Vendor: , Model:
Num hsync: 1, Num vsync: 1
hsync range 0: 31.00 - 70.00
vsync range 0: 55.00 - 120.00
"1024x768" 94.50 1024 1080 1176 1376 768 769 772 808

This seems so simple in the things I've read through searches on this issue here and on google. Yet I'm still stuck. Never had to use xvidtune. The Ati drivers work fine. Are different steps needed when changing the monitor section after you have fglrxconfig create your XF86Config-4?

You need to remove the # before Modeline (or the whole line will be read as a comment).
Also you need a correct Screen section, something like :
Section "Screen"
    Identifier "your_screen_ident"
    Device "your_device_ident"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultColorDepth 24

     Subsection "Display"
        Depth 24
        Modes "1024x768"
