Set the refresh rate as high as the monitor will go.

At least 85hz. I like 120hz.

But that won't fix the weird lines.
yes it has! like i said it was doing it every few mins before, and i changed it 15mins ago now and its been perfect

Makes no sense. Unless you're looking at your monitor through a fan, or are Borg and have video camera eyes, the refresh rate wouldn't change anything rendered on screen.


And no, the refresh rate doesn't hurt anything.

You may have a bad monitor or a bad video cable, do you have a CRT monitor?

Good on you for getting a new gfx card. I'm holding out for the DX10 chipsets, for Vista.

Anyway, I had a problem like this, and the oddest thing helped fix it. All I had to do was underclock my gfx card a tiny bit. (This was when I first had it), its stock clock was 485, something like that, I underclocked it down to 479, and it was fine.

I've now overclocked it to 510/1450, and it is running fine, (since the problem I've updated my drivers), seems fairly random and I think it be a range of random things. What brand is your card btw, (sorry if you've already said!).

What? Refresh rate is for CRT's.

Your LCD is bad. It should never flicker.
