    hehe yes a job WOULD help lol.

    Well, I dont have a LOT of money, but lets see... I make $9/hour @ 35 hours a week, thats roughly $1300/month.
    The only expenses I have are student loan, car insurance, gas, food, and a few dental/hospital bills I'm paying for.
    Other than that, the rest of the money is for entertainment LOL. At least for now! :D

    Sweeet. I dont want to get a job, but I am doing web design. Making websites for 2 companys, $100 profit each way. I dont know if you'd consider that a job or not. At my age I can only work like 2 days a week, 3 hours at a time, so working at Taco Bell,etc, wont do me much good. Anyways, back to topic ;) Lets hear some more resolutions :D

    Why do you guys try to use the highest "Hz" on your moniters? 60 gives me a headach so I run 72. But when do you need 80+?

    Well! It's like saying why do you need a million dollar when you can live with about ten thousand .. for example. You see, the more the better!!

    ....Uh, not really!! - :approve: - Normally yes, in this case no. It doesnt affect performance, or offer anything appealing, other then the ease on your eyes/brain if you get headaches,etc.

    I can tell the difference in 75 and 85. Just because you can't doesn't mean its not possible.

    Like I always say, you can't tell the difference between anything until you spend your money on it...

    I run @ 1024x768 60hz, too lazy to raise it (the 60hz, 1024x768 is fine)...I have anti-glare glasses anyway, so it's nothing really hurts my eyes.

    BTW agissi, next time you get lucky and get to make a website, I'm gonna kill ya and take your identity...except I look different than you...damn! Foiled again :D!

    well, my 19" is great at 85 Hz @ 1152, the stuff is very sharp as it should be, but it i go 1280 @ 85, the text becomes a litle bit fuzzy as I said (dont even speak about 1600) and it may be because I'm an astygmat, but when I change to 75 Hz @ 1280 it's sharp again, but I notice some very annoying flickering :(

    I have a Viewsonic GS790 monitor (19 inches) and I run my desktop at 1024x768 @ 100 Hz, perhaps I could go a little higher, 1152x864, but that'd be about it.
    I spend a lot of time using my PC and while a 85 Hz refresh rate is still acceptable, smaller text than my current resolution provides could be troublesome for my eyes.

    I understand that totally. I have better than perfect vision, and I had to go out and buy a cheap pair of those old people reading glasses. They are only +125 (which is pretty weak compared to what most people use), but they make such a difference. I have never worn glasses in my life, and now when I use my computer I wear these all the time. It helps to make things just a little bigger, yet still have my screen resolution small.

    It's funny . . .

    It's funny that when I had a 15" monitor before, I used 800x600, then I thought 1024x768 wuz way too small for my eyes to see. Then later, I got used to it and loved it. Now, I have 17" and I think 1024x768 is too big, so I moved to 1152x864, then I thought it wuz way too small again, but I got used to it a few days later. Then, I decided to try 1280x960, and I thought it wuz way way way too small, but now... guess what? I'm using it. So, for those people who are thinking of going higher for their resolution but worrying about their eyes not getting used to it... let me tell u.... It's a PIECE OF CAKE! GO FOR IT, YOU'LL GET USED TO IT IN A FEW .. HOURS?! A FEW DAYS FOR SURE!!!
