That is very very weird. The log file should exist. Here is one of my machines:
[root at bojan ~]# ll /var/log/Xorg.0.log
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 31880 Sep 21 14:18 /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[root at bojan ~]# uname -a
Linux bojan 2.6.32-279.5.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 24 01:07:11 UTC 2012
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Note that "0" in the filename is the digit zero, not the capital letter O.
Maybe the confusion is there.

This looks perfectly normal. The 1600x900 resolution is the preferred default
