/etc/X11/XF86Config-4

It's in this file. You should be able to do a quick search for the resolution you're currently using, then change it.

One quick note:
As far as I have been able to tell (note that I'm no expert in Linux...), you cannot change the desktop resolution without restarting X. While you can use Ctrl+Alt++ and Ctrl+Alt+- to change the screen resolution (if more than one resolution is defined in the XF86Config-4 file), the desktop remains at the highest resolution defined (virtual desktop sorta thingy).
