640x480 is the size most suitable for a windowed game, stretching that over fullscreen is fine and will look fine. 1024 is wayyy to big for a casual game, a hwa game is gonna lag on a weak card at that res. 800 is what you'd use for a game that you want to be big. 800x600 at fullscreen is what i think world of goo runs at. it may even be 640x480.

[quote="alspal":2122pqt2]
is 1280 x 600 a real resolution? doesn't seem like its the right ratio. Wouldn't it be 1280 x 800 instead?[/quote:2122pqt2]

Yes. It's a 16:10 ratio.

I live in the third world and everyone has 1024x768 here now

XD

I'd say it's safe to go with it. On the other hand, most boxes here can't handle a 1024x768 directx window smoothly even if it's doing very simple stuff, due to CRAPPY INTEL VIDEO CARDS (ahem).

Come on guys... jeez...

My PC from 8 years ago can run a 1024x768 DX game... upgrade or something! A GeForce 9400GT is like $50...

I used to run 1024x768 on my Pentium 166 with 32Mb of RAM and a 1Gb Hard Drive... fuck.

I think its the Old-Vaccum-Syndrome "If it works then dont buy another one, besides there will be newer and better ones later"

1280x800 here, widescreen laptop.

I generally prefer to work with this size or lower, on any size monitor. Comfortable for my needs.
