Yes, and I had Xorg -configure produce a suboptimal config for me just
last night (for perfectly valid reasons as far as it knew, looking at the log;
the 1024x768 res for the laptop I was setting up didn't match its idea
of available vert and horiz sync rates).
A run of system-config-display let me tell it it had a "generic 1024x768
LCD display" and all was well.
Personally, I prefer "Xorg -configure" first, and system-config-display
second. Your call.
