Number of display colors

I feel almost silly posting this poll, but the recent interest in calibration and a similar question on usenet made me think this might be relevant.

I dont work that much with color so I dont know how much good if any a high setting is. My reasoning goes something like: The card I bought says 32 bit color, so since I paid for it, I,m going to use it. Not very scientific but very human. Tom

I brought up desktop properties box to check and it said 32 bit so I guess that's what it is.

Mine says 800 X 600 True Color 24 bit. I'm using a 17" monitor. Along those same lines, I was wondering (out of curiosity) what resolution everyone else is using.

24-bit, 1024x768 on a 21" monitor (not mine - on homeloan from my husband's place of work). Don't know why I don't have it set at 32-bit. I think remember trying it once and it seemed that my video card wouldn't support it. Maybe I should try it again...

Can anyone expand on the difference between 32bit and 24bit display? Same number of colors, what's the difference?
