I have a 20.1" LG widescreen that says 1680X1050 is the best setting, my video card is an evga geforce 7600gs. I cant seem to get the screen resolution set right. If I put it at 1680X1050 then everything is too small. I've been f$%#@!% around with this for a while and cant get it right. Anybody have the same size monitor that can give me some good settings

The higher the resolution generally speaking the smaller things get. If it doesn't look blurriy then this is probably the right setting. If things are too small for you, do what I do- Right click> properties> Appearance> and set to large fonts. It makes a real difference.
