Monitor size and resolution

I just realized with a small monitor and using a 800x600 resolution that this
website looks pretty average, a lot of overscroll both ways, so I was wondering what monitor size and resolution everyone uses to see if its optimal for everyones browsers, and screen.

For me - Samsung CRT 995DF Flat Screen 19 inch, at 1024x768 pixels... using 100 Hertz screen refresh rate, (easier on eyes cuts flicker). The CRT's range is 800x600 pixels to 1792x1344 pixels.

Browser = is WIE 8, graphics Nividia GeForce 6150 LE.

Comp = HP Pav a1630n, running Windows XP Home Media Center 05 - cpu AMD 64 x 2 Dual-Core Live - 4600).

In the WIE 8 browser, I use the status bars multi magnification 100%, 125%, and 150%. In 100% I get all your site in with about 3% bland edge... the reading of text is ok but small size. In 125% I get 12% over-scan, but easy to read text. At 150% I get 25% over-scan and need mouse to get parts... but is very easy to read, especially after long sessions of screen watching.

I could increase the DPI setting from 96dpi to 120 dpi, which would resize the text larger... but I like it at 96dpi.

Over all your settings are fine with me.... as I adjust them anyways if I need to. I also have a MS mouse that magnifies in scroll degrees if I really need to read the fine print. :-)

A little off topic... but it you win more then one of the golf event games here... do you get more then one symbol of a trophy next to your name? Such as the champion of the chapions... of the game? :-)

I set it to one for now, the trophy shows if you have won multiple tournements, I could do one trophy for each win, however I haven't given it a great deal of thought, also I have no idea what the grand total winner for the year should get. I was thinking of resetting the trophies at the end of the year.

Maybe just Grand Winner somewhere might do... just an idea.

If you win a Major,do you get a bigger trophy ?

Because,you know,size is important...
