    Just wondering what I should have my refresh rate for my monitor set at? I have a 19" monitor and am running 1600 x 1200 resolution. The current rate is set at 75hz. Thanks.

    As high as your comfortable with. As I understand it, the higher your refresh rate, the less stress it puts on your eyes. I run mine at 85hz, the highest it will go, and my eyes generally feel fine after staring at it for hours on end.

    I run my 19" at about 98 which the highest I can get my Matrox card to go.

    I have my 19" set at 100Hz, but that's at 1024x768. You'll need a pretty impressive video card and monitor to get above 75Hz at 1600x1200...

    I typically run mine at 70 Hz and it seems fine. I really can't notice a problem unless I'm running at low at 60 Hz. Then I see harmonic fluctuations and it drives me nuts.
