Does 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' not work any more?
How about nvidia-xconfig?
Worst case, grab an Arch FTP ISO. It has an excellent xorg.conf creator.
Use /arch/setup to configure your network interface
pacman -Sy xorg hwd
That will give you two different xorg.conf files to try.
You will want to change the drivers from vesa whenever you import the file
