I use 1024x768 all the time with a 17" monitor, and have no problems working with Photoshop and reading print.

I'm using 1280x1024 on a 14" laptop. It works fine with PS and the forum and the scrolling is at a minimum.

1024x768 on a 20" monitor - but I also use Double Desktop a neat little free utility that I've had for years and don't think I could live without. Keep the program on one side and my notes on the other.

I use 1024/768 on a 17", wish it were larger, like 21"
Over on the PSP NG, some of the folks use 2 monitors.

832x624 for me, most of the time. I got used to working in 800x600 because that was IT (MAX) where I worked, and so I feel like 832x624 is plenty of room. I tried 1024x768 but just don't like it much. Maybe if I had more than a 15 inch monitor I would, but I don't.

Something has to give when you throw all your money at a computer. Monitor was the compromise.

Sadly one of my monitors has gone kaput so once again I am down to single monitor. However I have also discovered to my annoyance that Windows XP caps your refresh rate at 60hz.

really? I bet it has to do with your video card. what kind do you have? I've got a Nvidia TNT2 32MB AGP card and a 19" Samsung monitor, and I can get 1280x1024 @ 85 hz (or 1600x1200 @ 72 hz, which I don't like because the refresh rate is too low). at lower rez, I can get a way higher refresh rate.

I agree with David, something is strange there. Could also be that you're using a no-name brand monitor. If your monitor isn't PnP, you end up with a pretty useless default.

Unfortunately, that's the wrong way to look at it [pun intended ]. Your eyes are your most important asset, and a lousy monitor can really mess them up. I'd rather go for knocking off a bit of horsepower on the PC and getting a really top-end monitor - especially if you're into graphics work or even spend a fair amount of time in games.

I use 1280x1024 on my 19" Iiyama and 1024x768 on my 13.3" laptop.

Cheers,
