    I got it working. Just for those reading this thread in the future:
    1. Run nvidia-settings as root
    2. Set settings as desired
    3. Hit Save to X Configuration File
    4. Enter /etc/X11/xorg.conf in the blank path area
    5. Save, reboot, and notice how well it works
    (6. I had to readjust my font sizes because the same sizes looked really small after doing this, for some reason)

    Hi
    You can set the dpi option in the xorg.conf file by checking the output from;
    Code:
    xdpyinfo |grep resol
    Then add the option in the 'Device' section, for example;
    Code:
    Option "UseEdidDpi" "False"
    Option  "DPI" "96 x 96"
