A web designer friend and I were discussing a new site we were working on (full screen), and the question of monitor compatability came up. I said that a very few people would be surfing the web at 1600 or greater, yet he thinks there are more than there would appear. Pls let me know what you are running :)

1024 for me. 800x600 for gaming.

I haven't even seen anyone that has a monitor capable of 1600x1200+, though I've seen this HUGE monitor in a shop down town that can run at 1600.

Ya'll forgot 1280x960 one of those good 4:3 resolutions!!! its 4 times 640x480 and looks good, at least on my 21' sony :cool: I wouldent reccomend anyting less than 1024x768 unless you have samllass monitor, but most web design is sill done for 800x600 and scales to anything higher.

I use 1280*960(which cgx33 said about) on 19" 955DF Samsung monitor, looks great! :)

i'd say 1600 also looks alright on a 19" for some those can tolerate it.

Heh, I never thought to post my own :)

I have what I beleive is an old Alpha monitor as it is SVGA - BNC connectors (and the red channel isnt working so everything is a bit blue at the moment),

It's a Compaq QVision 200 20" monitor and even though the drivers say it can't run it, I can get it up to 1600x1200 which is great for desktop use, however I tend to go down to 800x600 or 1024x768 for gaming.

Windows: 1024x768x32

Why? Becuase lots of images etc. are saved as 32 bit colour images nowadays.

Games: 800x600x16

Why? Because if I had it at a higher resolution of colour depth with my PC (Pentium III 450 MHz, 128 Mb RAM, and a GeForce II MX), my FPS would make the games virtually unplayable!

I use 1600x1200 on my 21" Nokia, but I can fully understand people who cant put up with it.

I design all my sites to look good at 800x600.

hey, cool Khaos34! :)

I really like this monitor, i'd say for the price it's an excellent monitor. It's Quite sharp, bright and clear.

Oh! but I'm having a one problem with it, i just noticed a few moments ago.

Whenever i have a window with a black background(eg. mspaint filled with black colour the whole window) I see a whitish shade along the edges in the painted area.

Khaos34: do you have this problem? I don't mind it much, but i may call up samsung

I use 1152x864 but it is an oddball size. 1024x768 is too big and 1280x1024 is too small.

I use it too :)

But it isn't really an oddball size, because:

800 / 600 = 1 1/3

1024 / 768 = 1 1/3

1152 / 864 = 1 1/3

1280 / 1024 = 1 1/4 *this is the odd one!*

1600 / 1200 = 1 1/3

Don't know why that is? :s

If anyone knows I would be interested.

-1280x1024 Normal

-1600x1200 for maya, 3dsmax, final cut, after effects, flame

-800x600 and 1024x768 for website testing (depends on audience - 800x600 majority of consumers // 1024x768 for design and tech sites) 1024x768 will soon be the norm. I wish it was now ;)

-highest I can for games ;)

ACK! That's a bit to tiny for my tastes.

1280x1024 @ 32BIT on 19" ViewSonic A90

800x600 for most games, except Counter-Strike, where I run at 640x480 :)

And no that's not cause my computer can't handle it, see the way I see it, the bigger your target is, the easier to aim. I play to win.

i just got myself one of those monitors also.. i can't do 1280x1024 in 32 bit though, i guess it's because i'm still using the 1997 diamond viper 330 agp 4mb

1024 ? 768 @ 60 Hz is what I use on both Windows 98 SE and Linux-Mandrake 8.0!;))

If I had a 19" monitor, then I'd use the oddball resolution ( 1280 ? 1024 ) !

Winxpfreak, are you suing an Iiyama VM Pro 452 too?

I run Win2k in 1280x1024x32x85 (getting too long). The monitor's specs go up to 1600x1200, but I can get 1920x1200 although flicker or anything.

For gaming I typically use 1024x768. For web design I make sure it looks right at 800x600 for those poor smucks on a 14".
