Ideal Screen Resolution?

Hi guys, I usually do my design first in photoshop. But with all the changes that happened in technology today, I was wondering what is the best resolution(size of table/width) for my site's layout. I used to do it in 800x600, but noticed it was too big for 800x600 resolution monitors so I did a 755x600. What do you often use?

Personally, I design for a minimum resolution of 800x600. Nobody uses 640x480 anymore and if they do, they are used to having to scroll to read anything.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
