I'm not exactly sure what will happen if you set it TOO high. I guess you could damage the monitor, unless it prevents itself from actually trying a damaging setting. Best not to tempt fate, I say.
Try it EVERYONE will like it!!!

My IBM P202 is actually a HP1110. I learned it through the free Everest Home Edition and it had a hot link to the drivers.
Not only did I find more current drivers it listed the monitors refresh rates and resolutions.
YOU can NOT set it as high as you want, excessive refresh rate beyond the monitors capability cand damage it.

That will allow you to find your max refresh. (for that particular monitor, given that your computer knows what it is)
yeh
thats what i did when i wanted to level up my hz
it makes a lot a difference
not to mention that my graphics are better now, and my monitor is crystal clear
if i knew that i would never sell my 17"CRT screen for this tft

Vsync synchronizes the refresh rate of the monitor with the frames per second of the video card. This will ensure that the video card will not run higher framerates than the refresh rate of the monitor. This in turn eliminates what is called "tearing". Tearing is the visual effect that is produced when the framerates are very erratic, that is, really high one second, and really low the next. It depends on your video card and monitor, but most should be able to run an 85hz refresh rate. Personally, I run a 100hz refresh rate, with a screen resolution of 1280 X 1024, with vsync turned on. As others have stated, once you get around 65hz or so, games may be choppy.
