    Default Monitor resolution.

    Quick survey.
    I need to know the members' computer monitor resolution.

    Oh and please post the size of your monitor.

    For example, mine is:
    Apple 30" @ 2560x1600

    If I wanted to raise my ego, I'd put my three other monitors to make a quad-monitor setup and create a massive resolution of 1280x1024 + 1600x1200 + 1900x1200 + 2560x1600.

    No. This is simply for Stoptazmo and a couple of websites I manage.

    Edit:
    Oh and I have to admit that I'd run a multi-monitor setup if SLI worked on that. Driver and hardware limitations prevent multi-GPU rendering on more than one monitor.
    As soon as that's overcome, I swear to god that I'll slap in another 30" LCD.

    Edit 2:
    Found the email:

    won't it be annoying with 2 screens as the image will be "cut" in 2 ?
    unless you use one screen for something and the other one for another application.. ?

    Depends on what you are doing.
    For professional use, like Photoshop, Powerpoint, etc, dual monitor setups are the next best thing after an orgasm. Having ALL your toolbars, and I really mean ALL of them, on one and your photo/whatever on the other really helps a lot.

    yes, that's what i thought too... but i'm wondering if it's good for by example a game in dualscreen, or a movie... ?

    but sure that's usefull when you do several things at the same time or use an application like photoshop ^^"

    I tried Counter Strike Source at 2560x1024 (two 1280x1024 monitors) and it was quite unplayable. The crosshair was right where you expect it to be: Between the two monitors.

    God I wish I could run the top resolution there. I need a DVI cable I think to do that though.

    I'm using 1024x768 resolution. That's the typical resolution for 17"-19" monitors anyway.
    Monitor: 17" Samsung SyncMaster 753DFX
