    I'm setting up a web site, and I want it to show without scroll bars in most cases, so I'm wondering what monitors people have and what resolutions they run them at.


    I have a 17" CRT and I generally run it at 832x624.



    Thanks.

    I run 1024x768 @ 100HZ on both my Dell Trinitron 17" monitors and 1024x768 @ 75 HZ on my 17" Mag Innovision. Most people are running 1024x768 now, so most people are formatting their website for that. My website is formatted to fit perfectly on a 1024x768 screen. Oh, BTW, I have a Letterbox article I wrote on that webpage.

    I run my laptop at 1152x768 (it's a Powerbook G4, so it has the wide LCD), but when I use it with my 21" display at work, I use 1600x1200 on that display.

    As far as web design best practices go, I think it's still best to design for 800x600 as your lowest common denominator. I've stopped worrying about IE4 and Netscape 4 compatability as well.

    [EDIT]
    As another mentioned, 800x600 is generally considered the target resolution for web design.

    ^LOL. I wish my monitor could get a refresh rate of 100Hz. I'm running it at its max, which is 85 Hz. The resolution is 1152x864. I might move it up to 1280x1024 or even to the highest setting. The monitor is a 17" with 16" viewable area.

    BTW, I tried the greater resolutions with large fonts...too small!
