There is no generic "1280x768" resolution, in x.org. It's either 1024x768,
or 1280x1024. Pick one.
You did not indicate which distro you are using. If Fedora, run
"Display" from "System Settings". In the "Hardware" tab, if you can't find
your monitor, pick a generic setting for either a 1280x1024 or 1024x768
After restarting, you can then use "Screen Resolution" in "Preferences" to
set the actual video mode.
I find that with each passing year, manual hacking of xorg.conf becomes less
and less necessary, as long as you do your due diligence and choose hardware
that does not require you to use nvidia's or ati's non-free drivers.
