oh lol

sorry, I am getting incompetent.

here are the scripts:
$ sudo xrandr --newmode "1440x900-ok" 106.50 1440 1528 1672 1904 900 903 909 934 -hsync +vsync
$ sudo xrandr --addmode VGA1 1440x900-ok
$ sudo xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1440x900-ok

Use a text editor such as nano or leafpad to create a file called something like 2ndMonitorResolution.sh
Code:
$ nano ~/2ndMonitorResolution.sh

Paste your xrandr commands into the text editor [but without sudo at the beginning], then save [which in nano would be Ctrl+O to save, and Ctrl+X to exit].

Then go to Settings > Administration > Session and Startup > Application Autostart > Add and in the Command field enter "bash /home/yourusername/2ndMonitorResolution.sh" (no quotes).

Noice. At first I logged out and relogged in but nothing happened. I then restarted and it automatically set the monitor into max resolution.
Things you could learn and tweak by yourself, only with Linux.
Thanks a lot Stephen* and Damion!
