It depends on what game you're talking about. If it's a very graphix intensive game, i stick to around 800x600. If it's an older game (such as Tribes or Rainbow 6: Rogue Spear or Unreal) i run it at 1024x768.

The lower the resolution, the quicker the game will run, but the less detail/quality the graphix will have.

i can run NFSU2 (need for speed underground 2) at 640x480 with all the details on high with 30-40 fps, which is decent enough for me. an older game like soldier of fortune 2, i can run it at 1280x1024 with everything above high at 100 fps. CounterStrike 1.6, i'm still having problems running it higher than 50 fps. BTW, I run an nVidia GeForce4 MX420 64MB card at AGP 4x.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
