Ick. I don't do anything higher than about 1280x1024 on a 20" monitor,
and I usually am sitting no more than 16" back from it. At 1600x1200,
even on "good" monitors, I can't see things anymore. My rule of thumb
is you should be able to see the individual dots in a grid of 1x1 pixel
dots (but they shouldn't be too big).

You must have 20-10 vision or something, because no human should be able
to see 1x1 pixel dots on something with that high of DPI.
