    What do you guys figure is the standard to develop for?

    My screen runs 1400x1050, so I'm generally in the camp of screw everyone under 1280x1024...but that's probbaly not healthy.

    So, should I bother designing sites that are compatable with 1024x768 or 800x600? Please don't say 8x6 cause that resolution just sucks all creativity out of design.

    meh.

    1024. 800x600 is too old. Your page should still be useable in 800x600.

    I tend to work at 1280x1024, I occasionally switch to 800x600 to see what it looks like...but it always looks cr*p so I quickly switch back.
    I am non-committal, feigning blasť.

    Make your design liquid, so it works at almost all resolutions. I use 1600x1200, but people with greater than XGA (1024x768) are a small minority. How you design the page should (always) depend on your audience though; if your audience is cutting-edge web designers, then a display that only works at higher resolutions could be appropiate.

    For a client I would always make sure it looks good at 800x600.

    You can always make your page have a fixed width (i.e., a table with a width of, say, 700 pixels which you put all your content in ).
