Create a text file which will go in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and will start 
with 2 digits, something like 01-my-screen-setup.

Here is what's in mine which you can easily adapt:

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"DVI-0"
	Option		"Primary" "yes"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"DisplayPort-1"
	ModelName	"AOD 36" 	
	Option		"Right" "HDMI-0"
	Option          "PreferredMode" "1920x1200"
	Option		"Rotate" "left"
