I've created an icon on a 32 x 32 pixel and the display is sharp on my 32bit color ,800 x 600 screen resolution. But, when the icon is display on another computer with a 800 x 600 resolution but less than 32 bit color, the icon appear not so sharp. What pixel size to use in this case ?

I'm thinking this issue has more to do with colors than pixel size.

If another screen can't display all the colors you've used for the icon, it either will (a) approximate the colors by dithering (mixing pixels of colors it does have available) or (b) simply replace it with a color it has available.

An easy way to make your icon look OK on screens with lower color settings is to design your icon to look nice with your own screen set to 256 colors.  (If you're using Windows, this color setting is in the "Display" control panel under the "Settings" tab.)
