Ok great. Here is the output:

ok, you still have an xorg.conf that didn't get removed.

su -c "yum remove /etc/X11/xorg*"

Don't forget the asterisk after xorg, it helps remove the xorg.conf and it's backup file.

You can try rebooting after that. Keep your fingers crossed.

I tried that command if it found both file but I got something like no argument associated with both files.

Sorry, I had a brain fart. The command should have been

su -c "rm /etc/X11/xorg*"

I guess I had yum on the brain to much the last couple of days.

I ran that command but upon reboot the files 'magically' restored themselves.

Well, sometimes they do that, but with info pertaining to nouveau. You did remove the kmod-nvidia drivers right? What was the outcome of letting it boot all the way? Did you get a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner of the monitor?
Lets see what xorg.conf has in it.

su -c "cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf"
