Output definitely is 1600x1200. Here are some lines from Xorg.0.log:

[    77.187] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Output DVI-I-1 connected
[    77.187] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Output DVI-I-2 disconnected
[    77.187] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Using user preference for initial modes
[    77.187] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Output DVI-I-1 using initial mode 1600x1200
[    77.187] (II) NOUVEAU(0): Using default gamma of (1.0, 1.0, 1.0) unless 
otherwise stated.
[    77.187] (--) NOUVEAU(0): Virtual size is 1600x1200 (pitch 0)

Also xrandr reports this mode as active. In one of the logs I saw something 
about setting virtual to 1280x1024, that's why I've mentioned the above. But 
now it is 1600x1200, co correct values. So probably it has nothing to do 
with such scaling. By the way, my monitor is a pretty good CRT capable of 
1600x1200 at 85Hz (although not profesional one), not LCD, and it can adapt to 
any lower resolution in a much better way than LCD (almost no scaling
