Any suggestions? I have the monitor in my sig and am wondering what's the best and doesn't look weird. I keep hearing about different calculators where some are wrong, some are right. And some people say 65, some 90, some 74. So far I'm using 74 and I want to confirm if its the right one.

I'm using 74 and I'm pretty happy with it. You don't want to go to high or it will be difficult to see things in the distance.

After much testing I find 75 to be the best for 1680x1050.
If ignorance is truly bliss, then why do so many Americans need Prozac?

I did some calculations, and for 1650 x 1050, you should be using 65 for the best result.

Just thought I would help

I'm using 79, works great for me, but any more than that is just to much imo
