Counter-Strike behaves better at low resolutions, it's actually easier to see what your doing.

I typically play it on 800X600 as well

Haven't tried CS:S on low reso's, but CS 1.6, looks really wonky at really high reso's. And who ruined the 100%-in-a-row votes for Fullscreen

Yeah, I love all my VALVe games at max resolution with all eye candy on. My computer can handle it perfectly fine, so even better.

AMD Athlon 64 3200+
1GB Corsair Value Select RAM DDR-400/PC-3200
ATI Radeon X1900 XT 512MB GDDR3
120GB Seagate Barracuda UltraATA HDD
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum

I play all my VALVe game on 1680x1050 with all settings on high and at least 2x AA and 4x AF. I get about 60-120 frames per second depending on which game and where I am in the game (I tend to get better frames in Counter-Strike Source in comparison to Day of Defeat: Source).
