    okay guys, my question is which size you usualy use when you make template for site in photoshop? I use 960 gird system 12 col. but that is way too small, I think about resizing it to more, how much you think?

    Usually I just used a 960 grid system, only to get the proportions. I make it responsive most of the time anyway.
    If you're making a static website you could also go with a 1200 grid system.

    Yes, 960 is for newcomers. Personally, a 1,024-1,200 is needed for better optimization.

    Well that surely helps the OP. Such a detailed answer. Maybe next time explain why it is "the best". You could tell OP statistics of current screen resolutions around the world for example and base your answer on that.

    OP: There are also a lot of different frameworks, not just 960 grid system.

    The 960 Grid System is an effort to streamline web development workflow.
