    Simply put, how do you size yours?

    Would also like to see if there's been a trend since the last poll back in the Summer of '69

    1152*864.

    BTW here's your proof that people use 800*600 still:

    I use 1024*768. I switched from 800*600 about 3-4 months ago. The reason I didn't before is because I just assumed it wouldn't make a big difference(WOW, was I wrong on that!) and never really looked at anything else.
    Yes Samurai, I'm sure alot of people who don't know better still use 800*600. Maybe not alot here, but in the general internet browsing crowd, a ton I'm sure.
    Thanks for the link Rossco. Interesting to see some of the stats of the forum.
    I tried going to 1280*1024 for a few minutes after seeing it's the 2nd most popular size. Way to damn small for me. No way. I also went back to 800*600 for the hell of it. I was like "wow, this is horrible. Everything's huge."

    Yea I use 1280 x 1024 personally, but I've noticed that most people (not on here mind) don't update the graphics card drivers and as such are not able to go any higher than 800 x 600 and they think theat's the best they can get.

    I own a 17" TFT and without fresh drivers from ATI, it will only go up 1024 x 768.

    Either there are really stupid people out there, or they're too lazy to change. It really does make a hell of a difference. If I was to go to 800 x 600 now, I would have my desktop filled up with icons in seconds.

    Some people reckon anything more than 800x600 makes their eyes go bad, or gives them migraines.

    Especially older people...

    I think people are talking about their desktop resolution.

    Edit: I know, a pretty poor effort - but pickings have been mighty slim recently.

    I've decided to completely quit the world of rodding after making Busy and Asda glag...
