Anyone know of software that displays resolution and refresh on screen?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if there is software out there that will display resolution and refresh of your current monitor setting in game similar to what evga precision monitor display does. By that i mean you can see your clocks and frame rates over top of the game your playing. I have the viewsonic fuhzion 120hz 1680 x 1050 screen. Anyone who has this knows it wont give you an on screen display of what your current monitor settings are. Recent drivers have unlocked this screen i think, but I need software to prove it. By unlocked i mean making it so you can use lower resolutions than native and still achieve the 120 hz refresh rate. Once i can prove the monitor supports 1024 x 768 @ 120hz i can finally get rid of my enormous crt. Just got to find some software thatll do what i want it to do. Thank you!

FRAPS for the refresh rate (fps).

About the resolution display, you may want to have a look at your monitor settings. The last time I played a 1024x768 game on my 1920x1080 screen, my monitor upscaled it and showed in the option menu that the current resolution res was 1024x768.

Doesn't that kind of prove that you can't notice the difference between 75hz and 120hz? I certainly can, but can you? Why do you need the hz if your eyes can't confirm it?


One thing you COULD do is use FRAPS to measure the FPS, and use vsync to lock the FPS at the refresh rate momentarily. This way you could see if you were being limited to 75hz or 120hz...

Refresh rate and frames per second are yes very close to one another however, they are two different things unfortunately.

lol, i can def notice a difference, but i want proof. Proof will = craigslisting my crt. No proof = no sale. Locking the vsync is a great idea. Ive always given vsync the stink eye so that never even occurred to me. I will try that and post back, sry if i double posted.

I'm just suggesting that you vsync for the duration of the measurement.
