I have a Dell 8100 pentium 4 1.3 GHz 256 rdram 40 gb hd and a nvidia geforce2 mx 4x agp graphics card. When updating drivers I just take the default setting, one of which is 16bit color instead of 32bit color. Should I or can I use 32bit color. Are there any advantages or disadvantages ? What about resolution ? Thanks for any input

Unless you have an LCD monitor in which case the resolution should always be set to match the native resolution of the screen, it's purely a matter of personal preference.

I tend to run 32 bit color, as 16 bit still shows some dithering of color to my eyes. But its not that noticeable.
