Monitor does wiered things under X

Hey guys!
I am struggling with my OAK 077 card for three days already. It's
wiered ... When I installed X awhile ago I didn't have time to
play with Xconfig long enough and set up 1024x768 mode with dot-
clock 45.20 in an interlaced mode -- well, I know it's slow but
I didn't have time to make it nice. Now I have decided to make
things smooth and try 65.40 dot-clock. I played with it and here
is what I have now

   "1024x768" 65.40 1024 1046 1190 1300         768 776 777 798

This configuration gives a right position and the geometry of
the "square" on the screen but ... something is not right in
the horizontal timing because I have FIVE images instead of one.
It looks like there are two addiational images right and left
from the original one, and there are like blurry black strips
going up-down. I can see the picture, though, but it's actually
FIVE of them!

Could someone, please, explain what I did wrong because having
this 65.40 Mhz dot-clock is very nice -- refresh rate is high.
Does that mean that my monitor can not handle 65.40MHz? If
yes, then I'll be very angry because the title for the device
says that it is capable of handling clocks up to 70MHz.

Thank you very much in advance,

1. 101 Things you can do I Linux but not in DOS/Win

I'm talking about those things that make Linux a
better OS. I want everyone to add to this and we all may
learn something. Can we make it 101????

1. You can hold down the shift key and press 'Page up' to
    see 'x' number of screens that has scrolled up out of view.
   'x' is 8 on my system.

2. You can <left alt><F2>, etc, to switch consoles and do
   real command line multitaksing.  You can multitask more
   than one task at a time (aka - preemptive).

3. You can kill off a nasty program without resorting to
   the "big red switch" reboot.

4. You can install new programs without rebooting (unlike
   MS's install-reboot-install-reboot process).

5. You don't have to worry about overwriting a new .dll
   with an old one when you install an application.  An
   application install won't degrade your system to obsolete

6. There is no device mangler (a Win95/98 thing).  There
   is no brain dead wizzard (another Win95/98 thing).

7. You don't have to spend hundrends of $$ on a 2nd party
   X Windows emulation package, like eXceed.  X is free!

8. You can have arbitrary long filenames.

9. Read news while you burn CDRs.

10. No "out of environment" errors

11. No "stack overflow" errors

12  No this_is_my_file.txt as thmyfile.txt

13. When mysterious things happen, if all else fails, you can look
    at the source code.

2. Need doc on setup for remote connection

3. Doing more than one thing at once with find(1)

4. CFP: chicago area linux related bbs

5. wget doing strange things...

6. continued from linux.x

7. cron jobs -- silly thing done by me

8. Proxy setup probs!

9. 101 things you can do in Linux but not in DOS

10. Apple is doing a good thing

11. my Xterminals doing a dodgy #bash thing

12. eql doing strange things..I think?

13. Doing simple things with AIX PS/2
