Refresh rate question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've gotten lost in a world of different terms in LCD and CRT monitors from trying to do research, so I need to ask:

What is the maximum FPS my monitor can display?

I know this: It is a 2ms response time 19-inch widesceen LCD Monitor running at 1440 x 900. The dot pitch is 0.264mm I think.

-2ms
-75hz ( = 75 FPS? )


I have an older Dell LCD that runs at 25ms, and using it when I was ordering this monitor, I would often run my mouse across my desktop and watch it ghost ( I think it's ghosting?) where it wouldn't run smoothely across. I figured a 2ms monitor would be cool, because I would not see this anymore. This rig is all set up, and my mouse still "ghosts". When I whip it across the screen, I see the pointer go 10 inches in 4 steps.

I've heard that above 75FPS, your eye can't tell the difference, so I guess getting 12478FPS in CSS is useless. I get 60FPS in Quake 4 on Ultra, so I guess I am actually seeing it in it's prime (thought it would look better at 21325912380FPS, but no?)

I'm pretty much totally lost on this. I don't really know what Vsync is or what to set it to, or if to set it at all.

All I know is I have a 2ms DVI LCD running at 1440 x 900, and Catalyst says it runs at 75 Hertz. So what is the maximum FPS for this monitor?

I have a CRT secondary constantly showing me different temp monitoring things and performance things, but I never split screens in a game, so it doesn't matter.

Edit: The monitor itself (in it's little menu) says, "1440 x 900 @ 60hz" ... so catalyst is wrong?
