|Hi Caroll and welcome|
If your monitor and keyboard setup are recognized by X, thorough the new nefarious ways, then you do not need to have an xorg.conf. If you need something non-basic, then you may choose to download and run system-config-display (A gui version will appear in Gnome) or you may choose to create your own xorg.conf.
I for one had to create one for my system.

practice there is.
