You are omitting important information.

Why are you manually attempting to configure X at all? Quote Section 11.2.6 of the FAQ:
Quote: many cases, X "Just Works" by invoking "startx". In these cases, your hardware will be detected and queried for its abilities, and X will run very well.
Manually creating xorg.conf isn't necessarily required anymore.

Section 11.3.2 discusses changing the color depth & mode only after auto-configuration was found to fail.
