You might get more help on the Steam forums I think, but from the top of my head, if you have an Nvidia card, you might be able to do something like set the resolution to 4:3 and set the resolution. And in Nvidia control panel, set monitor scaling to do not scale.

If you have a Radeon card, then there will most likely be a scaling option in the CCC as well.

Now I read it, that didn't make all that much sense what I said as I typed it in a hurry, lol.

A better explanation is, set the aspect ratio within CSS to 4:3, and set the resolution to what you want. Then in the graphic control panel, set the monitor scaling to not scale, so hopefully it doesn't stretch to fill your monitor, but keep it within the aspect ratio you've set.
