Geez... Are the forum pages optimized for 800x600 or what?

Just wondering: How many of you guys have your screen rez set to 800x600 nowadays?

Once again 1280 x 960 is left out.:(

Hmm, alot of (non-cg related) people are still stuck with 800x600. Though I'm not sure they visit forums like this...

I agree. I think that most people who are visiting this site are probably artists and since they are using programs like Photoshop and Lightwave they probably have their screen resoultions bumped up past 800x600.

I use 1280x960 too because 1280x1024 is not 4:3 and I have stretching enough without that on my crappy screen...
I think a lot of people do, so it should have been in the poll.

Using an nVidia based PC system.

Same here -- I have a 19" screen. I use 1280x960 most of the time; 1600x1200 when I need the extra space.

Here's how to make 1280x1024 a 4:3 ratio:

Make a perfect circle on a piece of paper (you can use the bottom of a cup for a template), cut it out and tape it onto your monitor. Draw the same circle in photoshop (using the transform tool to make adjustments) and remember to hold down shift to make sure that you are creating a perfect circle. Change your res to 1280x1024 then adjust the magnification until the circle lines up with the paper circle. The circle on the screen should look fatter then the paper circle. Adjust the horizontal size in your monitor OSD (onscreen display) until it matches the circle. Tadaa, 1280x1024 with no stretching.

Also keep in mind that if you have an LCD that has an optimal res of 1280x1024, it most likely has a 4:3 ratio for that res but all other resolutions are a bit stretched.

Here's a great free program to test your monitor. Note: to end a test, press the right mouse button

Ohhhhh, it's so goood to know others out there are as anal about the 4:3 ratio as me! With my 21" monitor at work, I get a perfect non-distorted circle at 1280x960.

2560 X 1024.
Man I hate it when I have to use the single monitor here at home.
How do you guys find all your bins. Hotkeys are great, but I love the real estate of dual monitors when I'm editing.

Hmm.. Using 3200x1200 here on our T[2] with dual monitors.. Nice. And the good thing: My boss can't read what's on the screen. His eyes must be getting old :D

I'd like a CINEMA display... two, infact...

I CAN be done (you need a DVIator, I believe) but I want to see someone with it first.

games: 1280x1024 (POS monitor SAYS it will do 1600x1200, but it LIES)
windows: 800x600 (force of habit, i guess)

Wow, looks like we've had 91 people polled so far and not one single person runs at a resolution of 800x600 or lower. This information will come in very handy in future planning for our site.

Thanks to everyone who's provided feedback and suggestions regarding the new site and forums!
