Windows 7: Graphic issue and Multi Display

Thanks for posting the solution. Can you actually stay sane at 60Hz? I can't use a monitor at any less than 75- and even that is pushing it. I prefer 85, but my monitor does not support it at the resolution I prefer.

Jonathan big difference is you are still using CRT monitors which need a high(er) refresh rate, and djjamieg's are LCD.

Oh, right! How does the LCD refresh rate work?

Response Time vs. Refresh Rate

Ok, so if an LCD monitor doesn't refresh itself many times a second, why does an LCD monitor still require a particular refresh rate setting in Windows? We previously discussed the fact that refresh rates are something only a CRT monitor needs because of the way it physically operates. Well it appears that LCD monitors need to emulate a refresh rate in Windows primarily for compatibility purposes with games and hardware. Games, Windows and your graphics card are all still designed around composing individual frames in the frame buffer, and sending these whole frames to your monitor one by one, with the timing for buffer flipping typically based on Vertical Blank Intervals - all things which were originally required for CRT monitors. Therefore LCD panels have to try to operate on the same basis, despite the fact that they don't have the same physical limitations of a CRT.
