Override Resolution Settings?

[Mac] Override Resolution Settings?

Is it at all possible to override the refresh rates in OSX (10.2.8)? I'm currently running 1280x1024 at 85Hz, but as I actually own a 4:3 monitor, I prefer to run 1280x960, yet when I select this in Preferences, I'm only given a refresh rate of 72Hz, which - without messing a lot with the monitor itself - doesn't fit the whole screen, and is obviously below what my monitor can actually do, and what I'd like it to do.

so is there any way I can get 1280x960 at 85Hz ?

GoNz0, dunno, that's why I'm asking :p :D

xsiv, yup, everything can be selected then, 85Hz etc. 1280x960 seems to be the only res it doesn't like :confused:

Neither worked :\
That ****ing setdisplay thing has managed to hi-jack my context menu's though, so i need to find out how to remove that now :mad: crapware! *slaps* :p

Panther's definitely worth it. I was talking to a G5 owning friend (the git!) who also owns an oooooooold G3 prismo(?) notebook, he'd just installed 10.3 on there and says it runs as good as OS9. Which I never thought I'd hear him say, as he's a die-hard OS9.2.2 fan, hated OSX when it first came out :)
