really the only thing I know of for sure from the picture is the TV is a Vizio E3D420VX
Yes the card is the Zotac 570GTX the cable is a monoprice 6' 28AWG cable
and I was using a SL-DVI to HDMI adapter.

Move on people, nothing to see here....
You act like it is impossible to run display cables out of spec have you heard of the catleap 2b monitors they can run 120Hz over a DL-DVI cable.

It might have been too low to notice but in general the higher the refresh rate the smother things look. Manly if your computer can play a game at 82FPS and you monitor is set to 82HZ you will see every frame but if the monitor is set to 60Hz you would miss some of the frames. The bad thing is that you are running your monitor outside of its designed limits so you might damage something.Edited by rancor - 10/7/12 at 11:55am
