Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
        Option "PreferredMode" "1680x1050"

The section will probably already exist, it's only the PreferredMode line you should need to add.

or possibly
plasma-widgets-addons might contain one. 

I have one on my system but I have all the backports, testing, and ppa repos enabled. I do not have the memusage widget installed so the one I have can't be that one.
