Do this:

Right click on desktop -> Configure Desktop -> Display -> Size and Orientation tab.

If you find the list of resolutions there very limited or doesn't have all the resolutions supported by your chipset/video card, you might need to reconfigure Xorg. Take a look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf in that case.

First, be sure to install latest drivers for your graphic card, because some of higher resolutions may not work (above 1280x1024).

Not sure about KDE but I think what you're trying to do is changing xorg.conf file.

So just edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Otherwise there are some tools like xorgsetup, xorgconfig etc..., but IMO editing xorg.conf is the best way.

I agree, manually editing the file is the best way to learn.
