Just wondering, what resolution to most of you
have your monitor at? Not for playing games or
anything. Just regular, everyday use...

1024X768 - Any higher and the screen gets distorted. Any lower and it's ugly...

Oh, I'm wondering because my webpage is ugly at
anything besides 1024 x 768...

Well, it's ugly at that resolution too, just
not as ugly

1280X1024 at home.. I like real estate to work with... and I usually run 1152x768 or close to that with games. But then again, I have a sweet 19" monitor and a sweet video card.

oh... and in case you were wondering... that was a sad cry for bragging rights... I'm such a nerd with a competitive edge when it comes to this stuff....

oh, and one more thing... Static made a comment about how his website was "the best on the web"... or some BS like that... sorry dude, but my mom could write a better site than that. I would run circles around you.

1024x768 is what I use right now.
I was running on 800x600 but higher resolutions make
you feel your screen is larger which is good.

1024x768 - past that all the words get too small (I know there's a way to change that...) and below it everything's too big and cluttered.

1280x1024. Sometimes I need a little less so I use 1024x768. Any lower than that and I think it is rather ugly.

Really? I could have sworn I said it was ugly.
If you're referring to that other thread, maybe
you didn't see the little smiley face... I usually
use those when I'm not being serious, or when
I'm being sarcastic. Sarcasm is almost impossible
to detect in text alone.

Don't apologize. I like your mom.

Everybody always wants to be the best at
everything. Go for the Glory, Ober5861! Go for
the praise!!! You deserve it... :) :) :)


By the way, you were able to read the "under
contruction until sometime in 2001" statement, right?

Well, i have a voodoo3 and a 17inch monitor, so i use 800x600. I think that any larger makes the text to small, and that smaller looks blocky. I also perfer 800x600 in gameing too. If i had a larger monitor i would probably want something larger.

I run my computer at 800X600 I can push it to 1024 X 768 but then I have the alsome color chooses of 256 colors and 256 colors and 256 colors. So I just keep it at 800X 600 using High Color (16 bit). If I reduce to 640 X480 I can use True Color (24 bit), but the screen is way to small.

I have a 17 inch monitor so i find 1024x768 the best resolution to work with...

I am going to buy a 19in monitor soon and then i will run at 1280x1024

At work I use 1280 x 1024, with a 100Hz V-refresh (vertical refresh is more important then the resolution. Before, I had a 17" Sony, which worked "only" with 85 Hz V-ref, and, after 8 hours of work, my eyes burned, now, I've got no problems! ).

I think, a Sony Trinitron 21" its worth it ;).

Static... just givin you a hard time... no hard feelings.. :D

And yes, I saw the "under construction" note.. sorry, put me behind a keyboard where I don't have to see the other people and I get real testy at times. It's not a bad site and I actually like the graphic.

OH, and my mom says hi... lol

Govtcheez... How does that work? I've never seen a setup like that. What kind of video card is in it?

Govtcheez
