Angry Refresh Rate Problem

I have a GeFroce FX 5950 256MB Ultra & a Gateway FPD1830 18 inch falt panel monitor I want to play my games at 1280x1024x85Hz but I cant get the monitor to go that high, also when I play my games at 640x480x85Hz I have a blurred image and it seems to be laggy also what should I do to correct this problem?

That's because LCD's run at a native resoltuion, go any higher and you risk performance issues and sorry looking images.

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz
x1600 128MB
Windows XP/Mac OSX 10.5

The higher you set the resolution on your monitor, the lower the maximum refresh rate is. I would go with the native resolution and keep the refresh rate at 70Hz (if it supports it).

LCD = 60MHz refresh. That's all you need, as LCDs work different than a CRT.
