Well any thing in ~/.xinitrc will be started when you run startx. If
you are using xdm it will be ~/.xsession. Man xinit for more info. :)
Here are a few fun places to start...
browse till you find one that fits you and then install it and try it
BTW if you are new to X and not found it yet X -configure and xf86cfg
-textmode are your friend when creating a new config file for X :)
