Width of web pagesFrom Chris at Handyman USA

I wonder if you can explain the best width of a page.
On my site, I use 700 as the width. Since it is my belief that most monitors are set up for 800x600. However.. I do notice an aweful lot of sites (including real pro ones) are set at 600. This unfortunately seems to leave a lot of blank space.. and if the page isn't centered, looks offset too much to the left.
I know there is no standard..(yet?) but what is ideal...?
Any idea how many monitors are set at any given width display??
