I use it often and I don't like 1024 too much.
You may run the console in 1280x800 with nvidiafb. Try putting the correct video parameter on boot up. You may need to recompile the kernel and compile nvidiafb driver into the kernel (not as a module) if that doesn't work (the vesafb driver if compiled into the kernel may take over all other video drivers regardless of what video params you use).
You won't be able to use or install the binary nVidia driver for X if you use nvidiafb though.
