as a root on a root terminal use "system-config-display" to get a tool to configure your display while most preferred and better way is to edit "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" see the line which contains ...

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

hope this will help.
