what is the advantage of having your refresh rate higher? Does it make your monitor have better color, or does it make the monitor last longer??

Your eyes will appreciate it.

Low refresh rates hurt your eyes.

so it makes the monitor produce less radation and "noise"?

i heard that the LCD monitors require a high refresh rate, but how about CRTs?

Refresh rate is measured differently on CRT vs. LCD. On a CRT, you want a minimum of 85hz refresh rate, so its easier on your eyes. On an LCD, you want an 8ms or lower refresh rate for the least ghosting during games.
