Hey Guys,

I know there was a thread about this not to long ago, but I seemed to have lost it, and need as up-to-date as I can get. For the new website I'm putting together, my target Audience is gamers, mod makers etc... So I need to build it to run at the most commonly used screen resolution, Steam surveys say that 1024*768 is the most common, but I fail to see how it is. So rather then going by one source, I would you'll to vote on this poll so I will be able to build the website to suite. At the moment its built for 1280*1024 (4:3) or 1280*800 (16:10). If you want to know the website, its the one in my signiture, just click the image.

(Widescreen Resolutions are the bottom ones)

(This question is in relation to the computer your most likely to upload or browse the internet with)

I'm running at 1280 x 800.

But computers in a lot of public places tend to run at 1024x768. If I'm not mistaken, most websites are designed to run at 1024x768 or 800x600.

1280x1024. I ran 1024x768 for the longest time. However, that res seems too cramped these days. I've bumped it up a couple of notches. The result is Very nice.

My laptop runs at 1280x800, and my desktop runs at 1440x900. Since I use my desktop more frequently, I chose 1440x900.

My PDA also runs at 320x320, if that counts. :p

lol, nah, PDA doesn't count...Unless you feel like coding me an entire new css file to handle PDA size's =p So far, atleast, looking at the results (So limited it's not funny!) the website should do ok for the Audience, but I'm the poll is to low on votes to draw that conclusion yet...so keep voting please!

So, at work it's 1280x1024, but at home it's 1152x864 (most of the time ; some games I play not allowing it).

1680x1050 on my monitor, and 1280x1024 on the other LCD in the house.

Anything lower than 1280x1024 or 1440x900 any everything just seems way to huge to me anymore.

1680x1050 is by far the nicest looking res I've seen though.
