What is better? Higher or lower?

I have the following options available to me:

60 Hertz
70 Hertz
72 Hertz

I am currently set at 60 Hertz

So I should up mine to 72? I have a PNY Ti-4200 128 MB card and I am using an NEC 1545V LCD monitor

The higher the refresh rate the easier it will be on your eyes over time.

got for 70. Don't bother with 72mhz (doesn't make that much of a difference), but the 70 will stop the occasional flicker/choppy movements you sometimes may see or get when dragging and dropping things.

Thats a bad RR selection for that resolution. Whats your monitor?

LCDs do not require high refresh rates to eliminater flicker, since the screen isn't constantly "re-drawn" like CRTs.

60 Hz on an LCD is plenty for most people, especially at the correct resolution. Since you have a 15" LCD, 1024x768 is the native res. You're fine. Some LCDs act/look funky at higher refresh rates, too, even though they may support them.

In that case. What did you run the VS at? I never heard of that. I just bumped it to 75hz

60 Hz.

I have my 181T at 60 Hz, zero flicker. No electron gun = no need for super-high refresh rates.

Of course, what an LCD gains in not needing high refresh, it loses in terms of pixel response time...lower response times usually come at a premium.

Man my eyes get tired at the end of the day on a 60 Hz refresh on a CRT.

The MINIMUM refresh on a CRT should be 70 Hz.
