800x600? God, you must have no space for anything, the task bar probably fills half the screen and the icons, you can fit like 4 of them.

lol, actulally, 800*600 aint that bad, tho i prefer 1280 * 960 myself...for the lag, ive played some pretty intense games on my old p3, and lagged pretty bad, so i upgraeded the graphics, and it screamed!!! sounds like a decent pc, could use a better card, but from your specs, u got pci and isa, and those are quickly being outdated, so mayne an upgrade is in order? so get a new mobo(preferably one with agp or pci x-press) and a new graphics card...^_^

1280x960? The lowest I can tolerate is 1440x900, because thats what my laptop's native is, but on my desktop I never go below 1600x1200.

Send a message via AIM to infiltrator7

isn't the writing super small on 1600X1200? I'm on 1280X1024 and have trouble reading sometimes.
If you're interested in joining a MOHAA clan, send me a PM.

No, it's the same size. People don't understand, resolution doesn't make text smaller, it's still the same number of pixels.

It makes everything appear smaller, which I am willing to sacrafice for more space.

Besides, 800x600 is so big that blind people can see it....
