Doesn't really matter what resolution you pick, the reason most people played with a low resoution back then was because they wanted a higher refresh rate on their CRT monitors.

If you would go to a higher resolution, the CRT would lower the possible maximum refresh rate:

800 x 600/155 Hz
1024 x 768/121 Hz
1280 x 1024/91 Hz
1600 x 1200/78 Hz

(just an example)

At least that is what someone said when people say "the original resolution is best for counterstrike", there is no need to play on that pixelated 640x480 resolution, unless you have a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ PC.
