sound like you "must" use a custom modeline... so add this little piece of "code" into "Section" "Monitor" of your SGI...
# 1600x1024 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 63.60 kHz; pclk: 136.36 MHz
  Modeline "1600x1024"  136.36  1600 1704 1872 2144  1024 1025 1028 1060 -HSync +Vsync
and don't forget to change HorizSync to something like 31.5 - 65.0...

this should "theoretically" work(couldn't test it... my old monitor died)

	Screen      0  "Screen0"
	Screen      1  "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen0"
