My monitors here are 1920 x 1080 pixels (desktop HD) which are pretty much the desktop standard these days. They are nothing compared to the iMacs here (2560 x 1440 pixels). Even iPhones are bigger (width-wise at least) then your suggestion at 1136 x 640. Based on your "suggestion" everything that I view the site on will have some overflowing background.
It might not help much, but I've found this that explains at least one way to do it. It doesn't mention exact dimensions for the image that you use, but I'd suggest the biggest pixel dimensions that you can get without making the file size too large. There's nothing worse then waiting for a 500-700kb background image to load.
