      well... 304.5  228.375 is the size of my screen....(at least about)
      but this results in about 130x130 dpi but I wanted
      75dpix75dpi.....
       
      I have found a workaround for that:
      I set DisplaySize 542 x 407 ... now I have 74dpi x 74dpi
      thats fine...

      The better thing to do is actually set the size of your monitor in your
      XF86Config-4 file so that when the resolution changes, X will update the
      dpi value :-) (well, that's how it works on my ATI card).

      Put a similar line in your Monitor section of the file:

                  DisplaySize  304.5 228.375
         
      The seize is in mm which may be a challenge for some ;-)

      The man page has some info on this setting.
