Default refresh rates for moniters

is higher better?

let me rephrase that:

my lcd is a 75mhz

I run HALO at 60mhz


will running lower rates wreck the moniter?

ya, I noticed the desktop text was way blurry....

but halo was smoother.....

my screen has a 20ns , shouldn't that be good for games with a 75 mhz?

LCDs dont refresh in the same way as a CRT, so you can run an LCD at 60Hz and it will be just fine. Thats what I run mine at. You don't want to run a CRT at 60 Hz though.

Run the LCD at whatever...CRT should be used withthe highest hardare allowed refresh rate for your monitor to prevent eye strain and headaches. Never run a CRT monitor a 60 HZ!!!

LCDs are recommended for 60Hz. Going higher actually makes it look bad/fuzzy.
