    Actually, when you have vertical sync enabled, if you have a quality* graphics card, I think that 75 Hz is optimal, in other words, the optimal sync will be 75 frames per second.

    I have a 17in Sharp TFT monitor and can't set it higher than 60 hertz before my desktop icons look like shit.

    Apparently it is because the coding in Windows XP is flawed and it needs fixed.

    Microsoft posted an article on their website, but it still hasn't resolved the situation. I have an ATI 9800 128MB Pro with the latest drivers, as well as my monitor.;en-us;311403

    Microsoft do know how to mess up people's lives. Everyone's telling me that as soon as I manage to fix the refresh rate I'll notice a huge difference but it's like waiting for P2P sharing to become legal worldwide.

    I'm on the verge of giving up.

    Interference from indoor lighting can lead to strobing effects. The nearer to supply frequency you get the worse the problem becomes.

    So 50Hz and multiples would be bad in Europe. Similarly, 60Hz and multiples are not a good idea in N. America.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
