Sony Trinitron 24" GDM-FW900 xorg.conf settings

It was ridiculous how long it took me to find the correct xorg.conf settings for this wide screen CRT monitor I was trying to get to work (like 4 hours straight!!) Isn't there a site that lists modelines or modes or whatever for specific monitors? Maybe I am supose to know how to write the modelines from some monitor specs? WTF

Anyways just incase anyone is googleing Sony 24" Trinitron GDM-FW900 xorg.conf modeline settings heres the Xorg config lines I used to make it work (horizontal and vertical sync are from the specs. The modeline is from some guy with some different monitor but it happend to work and so I am rolling with it. I think the wrong settings can hurt your monitor??) :

It looks amazing now. I had it filling up the whole screen with some settings previously but the radio was all off and everything was streached out a lot.
