The short answer is, no. The game is locked at 1024x768. However, if you go back to version 1.0 (retail, without the 1.1 or 1.2 patches) and use a crack to disable Starforce, you can download a DLL that will let you force DirectX to display a resolution of your choice - the caveat being that no matter what you choose, it'll still use a 4:3 aspect ratio but stretch it to fit your screen.

So for example I have a 24" widescreen LCD that runs at 1920x1200 - and I can get SH3 to run at that res, but the image is slightly stretched to fit my screen.
