Finally, after years of suffering through a measly 15 inch monitor with 1024x768 res, i've got a new monitor. Samsung SyncMaster 997df 19inch monitor. It's crazy the difference it makes. I can see the entire sidebar on 3dbuzz without having to scroll. Can't wait to try some hl2 level making with this bad boy. Just out of curiosity, what res are you guys running. I've found 1600x1200 to be pretty comfortable, but it goes all the way up to 2048x1536. This just makes everything a bit too small.
