I want to be able to view the prints on my display at the actual size they will be printed - but when I do : "view actual size' they are a lot smaller - is this to do with the resolution my display is set to? (1680x1050)

If so, what should I set it to to?

You need to go into Photoshop > Edit > Preferences > Units & Rulers, and set the Screen Resolution for your monitor. My 22" LCD (1680 x 1050) has a screen resolution of 90 pixels/inch.

It's not the resolution the monitor is set to, it's the actual resolution of the monitor in pixels per inch. If your monitor has larger or smaller pixels than "normal" then the print size option may be inaccurate.

ETA: Chas beat me to it.
