I tried radeontool. Maybe I did something wrong, but it doesn't seem to
change anything. Looking at the options I'm not sure it would help
anyway. 

I was on a previous version of xorg, not sure which, and everything was
fine. When I was on my laptop display it gave me a resolution of
1280x800 (i think) and when I had my external monitor hooked up I got
1280x1024 (definitely).

Since the xorg upgrade to 6.8.2 I'm honestly not sure what resolutions
are trying to be used. I think it's using 1024x768 on both.
