I'm wondering what screen resolution is most commonly used now. What size Monitor do you have?

Does anyone use 640 x 480 here?
800 x 600? something else?

I run my 19" CRT at 1280 X 1024.

Curt,

I'm a bit behind the times as far as a Personal PC goes. I use 800 x 600 typically on a 15" Monitor right now.

I know that things can look very different at different resolutions. I was just looking at the forum here at 1280 today and it looked pretty small because it is set at 640 wide. I'm wondering if it's time to change at least to 800 wide.

Bill

Well considering that all of my computer equipment is someone elses cast off's, (read my post in the welding thread about fixing things), I still am at 800x600 on a 15 inch. When someone throws away a more capable monitor, I'll be more than happy to turn it up [Linked Image]

I use my notebook 800x640. The site looks good on that.

The site also looks good at 1000x?? on 17" monitors.

I'm partial to 1024 x 768 for everyday use on my 19". I tend to keep ECN in a "less than full screen window" that is effectively 800 x 600. I position the corners of other applications so they are a click away, or to monitor background activity. I'll kick things up to higher rez, on occasion, to increase the realestate around ECN's Explorer window.
