List of Tools to config X Display Video Card Monitor GUI

Just a short helper post for searchers. [people who actually search - yes it works!].

to config X:

you can run these wizards:
-configure - produces file called /root/ - it will be a starting point anyway
XF86Setup - GUI only
xf86cfg - GUI only
or you can manually config the etc/X11/Xf86Config file - not recommended.

the point will be to get a working X no matter how shabby then use the other tools to tweak it.
