I am using the NoMachine free version, but it's not letting me choose the resolution I want,
unless I am looking at the wrong place. From what i've read, NoMachine would support the maximum
resolution that your guest supports and I am stuck with the 1024x768 for now.

Tilak, 

That's a bad recommendation. VNC is slow like hell and insecure unless you set up encryption
which is not trivial. 
For Linux I guess NoMachine/NX/X2GO is prolly the best choice.
