View Full Version : What monitor resolution setting should I use

I have a Nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/64pro graphics card and a 17 inch alpha scan712 monitor. The default seems to be high colour16 bit 640X480 pixels. If I increase resolution the desktop icons get smaller. I run some games and photoshop. I also have 128 ram.

it's common for most users to run a 17' monitor at 1024x768 and with a video card like that you should use 32 bit colour (True colour) and a high refresh rate like 75 Hz or greater.

Thanks for the help. I've made the changes and increased the size of my desktop icons. It all looks great now.
