As others have said, Xorg doesn't *need* one any more. You only need  
to create one if for some reason the auto-detection of the correct  
settings on the fly doesn't work in some way for your hardware.

If you have a real problem and need to tweak the Xorg settings, then  
creating the file is fine. On the other hand, if your system was  
working fine without one, and you where just curious as to why it was  
missing, then I would recommend removing whatever you have created and  
let Xorg go back to how it likes to work these days.
