You're working WAYYY too hard.

ModeLines are useful ONLY in the VERY UNUSUAL case that specifying the right
refresh rates doesn't work and the VESA stuff isn't working. I have probably
never had a modeline work when the plain setup didn't since the turn of the
century. Note that the commented-out lines aren't in use, they're bits and
pieces of old configurations on other hardware.
The other thing I have, which may not even be having an effect, is:
Option "CloneVRefresh" "60-60" # [<str>]
in my video card section. I don't think this is doing anything, though.
Since the VESA/PNP/whatever negotation works, everything does the right thing
if you do NOT try to override it, at least on my system.
