Default Screen resolution...

I'm just curious what the majority of you all are using for your screen resolution... (I'm actually curious about the screen you use to view this forum, whether it be at work, home or the library!)

It be at home. It have wavy variations of intensity near left side, and wavy horizontal misalignments near top for over two years now, signalling it be near retirement age (or else my neighbor use heavy-duty magnets for something).

Cheesehead, have you tried taking the cheese off. I think that will stop the distortion of you head, thus allowing it to return to it's normal shape.

2 of my 3 primary machines run 1600x1280 on 19" monitors,, the third runs 1280x1024 (Vid card memory limits, but that machine isn't primarily games-orientated) on a 17".

Most of the rest of my machines run 80x50 text mode, with the gateway/router/server box running 80x25 TTL Monocrome (Original IBM MGP card from a 5150) and the "guest" machine running 1024x768 on a 16" monitor due to monitor bandwidth limitations.

The machine I used to use at work ran 1280x1024 due to the small (compared to what I'm used to) 17" monitor.


Most of the machines are hooked up via OmniView/Belkin 6-way KVMs - the only ones that aren't are the TTL Mono, and the 2 "primary" machines.

I normally read this forum on one of the two"primary" machines, occasionally on the "third" machine (those two sit on the same desk side-by-side, and I'm often doing stuff on both).

I'm running 1152 by 864 right now, but I bump that up or down depending on what I'm doing. I like to run in a browser screen that would be full screen on an 800 by 600 monitor.

I use 1024*768,But I realise that my Celeron 1100Mhz PC makes "per iteration time:0.320s"when 800*600 and"per iteration time:0.362s"when 1024*768.I wonder why------I'm going to try 640*480,1152*864 and 1280*1024.I'll send up my result tomorrow.

Heh, no one has cast a single vote for 640x480 or WebTV yet. I have 1280x960 on my nice 17" at work, and 1152x864 on my 17" at home, which oddly enough, exhibits behavior similar to that of Cheesehead's.

I wear no cheese though. But maybe it has something to do with my socks?

I usually run 800by600. Most web sites I visit are laid out in this resolution and I can still see text on everything without tinkering with the settings of every program I use.

I have most of my games set up to 1024by768 to reduce pixilation, but I don’t notice much difference above that (except Frame Rates).

Limitation of the voting system, that only allowed me to vote for one option.

Plus, most of my machines run a resolution that isn't on the voting list (see my previous commentary)....
