"quiet splash" are options that are passed from grub to the kernel, but
I just tried them and realized that although they decrease the verbosity
they don't eliminate it. I *think* to eliminate it you need special packages
and a kernel patch and recompile. I don't think it is related to X , as
X doesn't get involved until quite late.
This may be the kind of thing you are looking for:
Hopefully I am on the right track this time...

You mean in the KDE control center under display, right? I have never been too
sure how it interacts with the X config files, but it should let you select any
resolution listed in /etc/X11/xorg.conf . You could try unchecking the box that
says "apply settings on KDE startup" and restarting. Then it should use
the X defaults. Otherwise I dunno.
