After installing Xorg-X11 i found out that my Monitor resolution [1600*900 60] wasn't there. After searching and asking in irc channel i found this way:

Code:
creating with cvt
cvt 1600 900

1600x900 59.95 Hz (CVT 1.44M9) hsync: 55.99 kHz; pclk: 118.25 MHz
Modeline "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync


Code:
making
 xrandr --newmode "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync


Code:
Adding

xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1600x900_60.00"


Code:
Changing

 xrandr --output VGA1 --mode "1600x900_60.00"


Note: after restart all of the above procedures will lost.

in the arch linux wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xrandr#Making_xrandr_changes_persistent says a way to make it stick and i did it is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier  "Intel Xeon"
  Option      "Monitor-VGA1" "VGA screen"
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
  Identifier  "VGA screen"
  Modeline      "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -Hsync +Vsync
  Option      "PreferredMode" "1600x900"
EndSection
Section "Screen"
    Identifier      "Primary Screen"
    Device          "Intel Xeon"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth           24
        Modes   "1600x900"
    EndSubSection
EndSection


But there is no use after all this work. the restart will undo all the work. even the 1600*900 will disappear from the xrandr command output.
How could i make it Persistent
