I use xorg.conf files for this. It doesn't affect early boot, but does apply
later. Here is one I use on a system with an nVidia card using nouveau:

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# keyboard added by system-config-display
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	ModelName    "NEC MultiSync LCD2010X"
	HorizSync    31.0 - 80.0

EndSection

EndSection

	SubSection "Display"
