Whatever you can look at without straining your eyes. I would say 1024x768 - slightly higher for games - 1200x1024 (unless you have some huge need for a big desktop)

I would go with 640X480 and only 256 colors.

Seriously....If the hardware supports it, go with the highest resolution and color depth that you like. (1024x768 16bit or 32 bit) Also, set your monitor refresh rate to something higher than the default. The higher the refresh rate the better.....until you toast your monitor. ;)

I run my 19" in 1280X1024 for windows apps and 1024X768 for gaming. And if your monitor can do 85 hz then I suggest you set it at 85hz.

I find 1024x768x32 works for the best for me, compatibility-wise and speed-wise, however I may drop it down to 16-bit for your system to ensure everything runs smoothly.

I run 1024x768 32bit on my 19" iiyama. Sure I can go to ridiculous resolutions .. but I'd need binoculars to actually see things :D

no probs daemon.

manmountain - 1280x1024 is perfect on a 19" (unless ur blind?) - 1152x864 is good if u dont like it too small

i need loads of space on screen cuz im always designin webpages an stuff - higher res = more space :D

Actually, my eyesight isn't what it's used to be - so I would agree with you. But the kids and the wife also prefer using 1024x768 so there goes the blind theory :p

I've actually been thinking about getting some console or another. Probably an xbox. That will keep the kids busy (I hope), as for the missus, I doubt I could pull her away from Dungeon Siege. She's seriously addicted (Perhaps theres a DungeonSiege Anonymous society out there?) :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
