    For now I'm using 1152x864@85Hz. It doesn't look that bad (size-wise) except I've had to nuke half of my desktop icons.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Here's a theory - screen resolution multiplied by programmer skill is a constant

    Sounds pretty accurate, as it looks like I have the highest resolution so far.

    Are you adding the two Xs and Ys together to get that number, because I don't see how you can possibly pull off that many pixels with your setup.

    He added 1600x1200 and 1600x1024.

    It's a dual monitor setup.

    edit: So yes, I was adding them together.

    I have a 20" widescreen LCD running on 1680x1050. Also, what I estimate to be and 18" CRT. I don't have it set up to use both, but I could. As well as various other monitors laying around my room.
    My computer is awesome.

    Before LCD monitors became popular, 1024x768 was the most common resolution.
    LCDs made 1280x1024 resolution and widescreen so popular.

    Now when I think of the past... how could I ever use 640x480 resolution? It seems so freaky now...
