in Section "Screen" you have DefaultDepth 16, but there the only mode is "800x600". You need the higher resolutions there, and the first one in the line is the one used, so you can add a bunch and ctrl+ or ctrl- throught them.

Here is what I have (this was set up via drakconf)...

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

Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection
EndSection
