    True, although what's there covers most bases

    Code:
    backgroundDefault.jpg
    background768x1280.jpg  (0.6)
    background900x1440.jpg  (0.625)
    background960x1280.jpg  (0.75)
    background1024x1280.jpg (0.8)
    background1280x1024.jpg (1.25)
    background1024x768.jpg  (1.33-)
    background1280x960.jpg  (1.33-)
    background1600x1200.jpg (1.33-)
    background1440x900.jpg  (1.6)
    background1920x1200.jpg (1.6)
    background1280x768.jpg  (1.66-)

    Here you go:

    Code:
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("Winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2") 
    Set objSh = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From Win32_DesktopMonitor where DeviceID = 'DesktopMonitor1'",,0) 
    For Each objItem in colItems 
        intHorizontal = objItem.ScreenWidth 
        intVertical = objItem.ScreenHeight 
    Next
    
    strResolution = CStr(intHorizontal) & " x " & CStr(intVertical)
    
    Select Case strResolution
    Case "1024 x 768"
            strWallpaperPath = "C:\folder\1024x768.jpg"
    Case "1280 x 1024"
            strWallpaperPath = "C:\folder\1024x768.jpg"
    Case "1440 x 900"
            strWallpaperPath = "C:\folder\1024x768.jpg"
    Case "1920 x 1080"
            strWallpaperPath = "C:\folder\1024x768.jpg"
    Case Else
    End Select
    
    'Set the reg value
    objSh.RegWrite "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper", strWallpaperPath, "REG_SZ"
    
    'Apply the change
    objSh.Run "%windir%\System32\RUNDLL32.EXE user32.dll,UpdatePerUserSystemParameters", 0, False
