Never liked widescreen on desktop, will get the calculator out.
1600 by 1200 times 6 is 4800 x 2400

If your building a front end the de facto for fixed width at the moment appears to be ~960px, mainly because it divides nicely for 12/16/24 column layouts and fits on a screen 1024px wide.
Regarding issues with positioning for fixed width layouts it might be worth using a css framework to take some of the pain away:
Blueprint: A CSS Framework | Spend your time innovating, not replicating
960 Grid System
YUI 2: Grids CSS
I've used all three in client applications (particularly liking 960 ATM) and recommend giving them a shot if your going to be involved in more front-end work.
yui and 960 also support fluid grids (not sure on blueprint) which have minimum widths but stretch for wider resolutions if you want/need to cater for larger resolutions.

I run 3 x 1600 x 1200 LCD's together on my main desktop machine. I've owned them for over 5 years and keep a forth one spare just in case any 1 of the 3 goes "bang!" since they aren't manufactured any more and continuity is important to me
Prior to that I ran 1600 x 1200 on a single 22" CRT, which weighed a tonne and have now given to a relative, which I bought in early 2001.
I also have a laptop that runs 1920 x 1600 (UWXGA) and both my previous 2 main laptops, the first which I purchased at the end of 2001, both ran 1600 x 1200 natively (UXGA LCD's).
So whilst high resolutions are common these days, I wonder how many of you have been running 1600 x 1200 or higher for as long as I have.

Mine was a Mitsubishi Diamond and was just enormous but a great display until it went bang.
Now my setup is similar to stevebrowne (and yes I've got a big desk!)
2 x 1680x1050
2 x 1280x1024
1 x 1280x800 (laptop)
Is this turning into a who's got the biggest willy contest?

I have just one monitor 1920 x 1200.
I tend to set site widths at around 990-1000px
If you are redesigning a site then a look what the stats to see what current users are using will give you some insight.
