Windows 7 is awesome, but this is a major flaw
i hope they fix this quickly
And all you folks reporting this stuff have tried your games with 60Hz and there were zero problems right?

To once again ignite the flames of discussion, do refresh rates really matter when it comes to LCD's? Lot's of opinions on this as well as vertical sync.

I run with vertical sync on which forces 60Hz because games are more fluid. For benchmarking I turn it off.

Add me to the list!

You can add me to the list as well.
At my Native resolution I get both options of 59 or 60.
I choose 60 & it automatically reverts back to 59!

But, is there any discernable effect?

As most mentioned, Windows gives me 2 options: 59 or 60. Even attempting to "force" at 60hz it still reverts to 59. However, the monitor itself shows it at 60hz. In this case, I think I believe the monitor. Irregardless, I see no degradation in the games I play.

I haven't had a single problem with games regarding this non issue, I really think people need to stop worrying about this unless they themselves have a legitimate issue because of it.

I will not stop to worrying about, as long as i dont get things as they were in Vista (in any version, beta or not), so if you dont have problems with this, good, but that doesnt mean thats the same for everyone. Its not only games that have refresh rate problems, but im tired of re-typing stuff 3 or 4 times, you people have to FULLY read the threads and then post some opinions, not reading the 2 last pages.

Cheers to all.

LCD Native Resolution, EDID and 59Hz issues
I'm on the trail of what might turn out to be quite a boon for those folks with resolution and refresh rate issues. Seems that Windows caches a copy of the monitor EDID since querying it can be very time consuming at startup each time. There appears to be no "protection" on that stored binary value...

Windows 7 insists on resetting my T260 to 59hz
Ok, I tried to help a few others on here - now it's my turn. Done the web searches about Win 7 resetting my Samsung T260 monitor on startup to 59hz (from proper setting of 60hz) which annoyingly reduces text size. Can't find an answer! Appears many others suffer from this 59HZ 'bug'. This...

Refresh rate won't go above 59hz
I have a 8800 GTS running with an HP LP2275w monitor. I just installed win7 and for some reason it won't let the refresh rate go above 59hz. My monitor is capable of running 60hz. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but I actually find it quite disorienting. When I change the video settings...
