Well just do to System Preferences -> Displays.

And pick the resolution that suits you the best. But the max resolution for this imac of 1680x1050 seems to be popular with many.

It's best to use the native resolution of the display, especially if it is LCD. As the8thark said, it would be 1680x1050 for you (and me).

schweb This has to be one of the best threads ever in MF history...
Cherokee This gets my vote for most innovative thread on Mac-Forums... ever.
