Usually I never have to meddle around with xorg.conf for the newer
distributions. Have you run nvidia-settings, selected the proper
resolution (the changes are visible immediately) and saved your
changes?
Also, do lspci and see whether the nvidia card is getting detected. If
it isn't check for hardware problems.
