I usually go with 960 pixels that fits a 1024 pixel width monitor and leaves room for scroll bars, etc.

Btu it 's been a while since I checked the stats or actually thought about if that makes sense.

Me too usually for a max of 960px width, but I've noticed that my visitors with a screen resolution of 1024px by 768px gets every month less. This month shows only 3.2%.

Check this out Toby - http://960.gs

It will generate a grid css for you... a great starting point if you're doing a multi-column site.
