Is forcing a refresh rate bad?<br />
<br />
My LCD supports 1920x1200 at 60hz. Is forcing it to 75hz bad on the monitor?<br />
<br />
I've set it to 75hz and i'm not seeing any problems.. The main reason for this is 75hz makes the mouse respond alot better. (Google: LCD input lag)

if the "do not display refresh rated my monitor does not support" is checked I HIGHLY doubt any damage will befall your monitor.

Yea.. but I want to display it at a higher than supported refresh rate.. lol<br />

My friend says its not bad but i'd kind of like some opinions before I put a 800$ monitor into a unsupported refresh rate =/

go for it if its under warrenty. All i think it'd do is use more power/make more heat

1 - It's not GOOD. Trust me!<br />
<br />
2 - The mouse can't possibly work better...60Hz is plenty on an LCD....<br />
<br />
Maybe it's just me...but I don't like screwing up my stuff..I'd never set my monitor over 60Hz.

If it doesn't support it...then it doesn't support it...<br />
<br />
If it does..then by all means, go for it.<br />
<br />
Mine doesn't.<br />
I don't think his does, either.
