Yes, put grub.conf back to it's original content (replace the vga=775
line with vga=normal) and modify the "screen" section in
your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to look like this:

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Card0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

FWIW, all I did was to add the "1280x1024" and "1024x768" entries in
the 'Modes' line and then restart X and you should end up with your
desired resolution(s).
