I miss 1600x1200 :(
I had to drop down to 1280x1024 when my old monitor gave out and my current one has a horrible refresh rate at any higher resolution.

Mine runs at 800x600 at 85 hertz, and supports upto 1600x1200.

And I just had to find out now that you need to scroll to see the extra stuff over 1024x768.

mine is a 15" TFT and runs at a maximum of 1024x768, wish it would run higher but being able to fill my desk with more crap because of the smaller footprint is important to me ;)

my notebook only supports 800x600 and 1024x768 and i'm running 1024x768.
my monitor at my pc supports more (up to 1280x1024) but i'm also running 1024x768 there, cause i think, thats the perfect resolution ^^
not for surfing the net or playing pc but for browsing pc. ^^

I guess I really should have posted my settings.... :oops:

1280 x 1024 x 32bit @ 75Hz on a 19" Monitor

SHS` Whats the reason for your resolution? It's not a standard resolution and doesn't quite seem right for a wide screen LCD or similar.

nVidia drivers rock my world in being able to create custom resolutions.

1600 × 1200 was too flickery for anything more than 2 seconds as it refreshed only at 75Hz (I need at least 85Hz before I stop seeing flicker... 100Hz is rock steady) an the normal mode below is too small having only 1280 × 960.

In Linux however, I could use 1400 × 1050 at 85Hz with my 19" CRT... the lastest nVidia drivers now allow me to do the same in Windows. :D
