    You haven't set up any useful resolution in your xorg.conf file. Your section where you define the maximum resolution looks like this:

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "screen1"
    Device "device1"
    Monitor "monitor1"
    DefaultColorDepth 24

    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 8
    Virtual 640 480
    EndSubsection

    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 15
    Virtual 640 480
    EndSubsection

    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 16
    Virtual 640 480
    EndSubsection

    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Virtual 640 480
    EndSubsection
    EndSection
    The max resolution is 640x480 for all resolution there. Change the "640 480" entries to "1024 768" and you should get a 1024x768 display, if your monitor supports it (it should, I guess).
