You have a monitor which can do 1600x1200 but xorg can only see fit
to give you 1024x768. This may be because the monitor is not
providing suitable information to xorg, so it serves up 1024x768 so
as not to disappoint you. Look at the Xorg log in /var/log and search
in particular for 'EDID'. Is there anything like that or references
to monitor resolution there?

Neither has anyone elses.
