There is also the possibility of including certain xrandr constants in your 
xorg.conf.  For example, I use a dual head setup and want certain resolutions 
and a certain monitor "RightOf" the other (the default monitor detection 
reverses what I need):

## /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0

Section "Files"


#Section "ServerFlags"
#       Option      "AIGLX" "off"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "DVI-I-1"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1680x1050"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "VGA-1"
        Option       "RightOf" "DVI-I-1"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
        Option       "DPMS" "Off"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Device0"
        Driver      "nouveau"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Device0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24

#Section "Extensions"                                                                                                                                                                                          
#       Option      "Composite" "Disable"
