Why yes, it can mess things up or at the least dramatically shorten the life span. Also, like asked above where in the **** did you get said monitor?? Are you sure you are reading this right?

Are you sure you have "Hide refresh rates this monitor cannot display" checked???? It sounds like you don't...

Edit: I took too long to research the monitor's possible specs... Nubius beat me to it.
