    As high as your monitor supports (RTFM). 65 or lower might give you headaches or eye damage.

    :rtfm: J/K. Since you're saying it's "dim," I'd raise the brightness or set the color to 9300K.

    You should be careful with seting your monitors refresh rate. You can screw up your whole monitor with the incorrect settings. When I say screw up I mean physically damage it to the point where it may be inoperable.

    And in windows you should have the check box selected that says "Hide modes that this monitor can not dislpay." I think its on by default. This only deals with the refresh rate. Anything else you can pretty much experiment with and change it to your liking depending on the size of your monitor. 60 or 70 should do it for a 14 or 15 inch monitor, vice versa as the size increases so should your refresh rate.

    Yep the high the better,the lower it is the more the screen flickers.Why tv-outs have anti flicker functions to compensate for tvs only being able to handle 60hz.

    the box which says 'hide modes which cannot be displayed' is not 'checkable' i mean i cant tick it, and there is no tick in the box to begin with. what can i do for it to allow me to check the box?

    I wouldnt worry about it. As long as you dont set it to some super high refresh rate that your monitor cant handle you should be ok.
