That depends on the monitor. With my resolution correctly set
to 1920x1080 on my 42" HD monitor, the DPI computed (correctly)
by the X server is 52 DPI. When it tries to render fonts at
52 DPI, they look awful because it only has a few pixels to
try and render a 10 point font (for example). Overriding the
DPI and forcing it to 96 makes everything much more visible.
