There is a way. In the Screen section of XF86Config, there are a number
of Display subsections.
In my /etc/X11/XF86Config:
#Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "Chips & Technologies CT65545"
Monitor "My Monitor"
Virtual 1024 768
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This line controls virtual mode
Viewport 0 0
You can set the Virtual line to 640 480 if you want to have the image
fit the screen.
Depending upon your version of X, the config file could be:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config (or somewhere around there)
You can find out more about configuring X by reading the XF86Config
