As stated earlier, this has been discussed, disected and debated for days, weeks and months here - 59Hz. The thread is 30 pages long thus far, so...

It's an issue that up to this point has no fix! "Maybe" Microsoft will address it in a service pack or otherwise, until then, it's a Windows 7 issue that's here to stay.

The ATI 9.12 driver package seems to have fixed the 59Hz on my system with a 5870 card. It now reads 60Hz and matches what is in the CCC.

Well I just upgraded to the 9.12 drivers and checked to see if Windows was still showing 59Hz and it does, even though the drivers themselves read 60.

Not an issue here. I was just curious to see what these drivers did and wasn't surprised to see they had no effect.

Again, this is a Win 7 OS issue, especially since the video drivers themselves read the refresh rate of the monitor as 60Hz.

At any rate that's my two cents and i'm not stressing over the situation since I personally don't suffer any i'll effects in any apps or games.
