Edit: I think I have this figured out. Now that the guest additions are installed when I switch the VM into full screen mode it properly sizes to the monitor and shows 1680x1050. Twas a little confusing at first, but I think it's working correctly now. It just can't be done from within the Windows 8 resolution settings. It works this way in my XP VM as well - live and learn.
