I've got mine at 1152x864. On my 17in monitor, I find 1280x1024 makes things a little too small to read comfortably, especially since I like to sit some distance from the screen, wheras 1024x768 is too big, so it's a nice compromise, yet still 1:1.333 ratio. I do use 1280x1024 for games though, where available.
