That depends on your monitor but higher is usually better.

Depends on your eyes ... if you notice the screen flickering, then up the refresh rate !

Mines at 85HZ, you dont need anymore than that IMO ... its just a waste. And most monitors cant really handle anything above that when your at high res. So Id just stick with 85HZ ...

Set it as high as it will go.

Lando, Would you care to elaborate on that?

You should be able to find the monitor's max Hz either in its docs or on the web. Just set it to the highest the docs say will work.

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.

If your computer recognizes the kind of monitor you have, it should give you an idea what the max refresh rate is for that particular monitor.

My Viewsonic A19F+ was SWEEEET at 85 Hz, and I believe it could go higher, but some video cards can't handle much more, and not to mention that you won't notice the difference (settings much higher than 85)

Right click on your Desktop, properties>settings>advanced>MonitorTab> there should be a box to check "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display"

That will allow you to find your max refresh. (for that particular monitor, given that your computer knows what it is)
