1280x1024x32 at 85Hz.

Just got a few questions concerning refresh rates again...

1. In refresh locks configuration, the fastest safe frequency for the resolution 1280x1024x32 is 60Hz. If I set this to always run at 85Hz, can this do any harm or does it just force 85Hz and improve the refresh rate?

2. What the highest Hz I can go to in that resolution or is there no high value. Just test and see.

3. Does anyone know how to fix screen tears during games. It's like the screen tears and separates.

Thanks

Make sure you install monitor drivers. If you install Drivers for your monitor, that is how XP knows its maximums

In my monitor settings, I have 85Hz as a safe frequency. What are the risks of locking the refresh rate at over 85Hz?

Do monitor drivers get updated?

If you got a 21" Trinitron it can handle 85Hz. Also, if you set refresh rate higher than monitor can handle, when Windows boots you will get a monitor error and the screen will remain black (or to be politically correct - blank).

Yes, Snook is right about that...always take your own monitor to a LAN party, even if the host says he has one you can use...it is very painful to get there with just your box and find out that it refreshes to fast...
