Quick question about my monitor display

I have a Dell monitor at 75hz according to my Nvidia Control Panel. I was thinking of switching to 60hz just to test some things out while gaming. Whenever I switch over to 60hz using the Nvidia control panel, displays and words look really blurry, to the point where I have to squint my eyes. I'm guessing this is because it's not my native display settings, but is it possible to switch to the 60hz option without it being hideous?

    If you display work well in 75hz why do you want to reduce the refresh rate. Higher refresh rate is always better for gaming. You can get the model number of your Dell display and check on google for its maximum refresh rate if you are interested.

    Yeah, I know that 75hz is better for gaming. It's just that I've been messing around with the Nvidia Adaptive vSync which locks my framerate to 75 in games. This is ok in some of my games because I actually can achieve a constant 75FPS, but in more demanding games like Battlefield 3, Crysis, etc., I can only reach about 60-ish FPS. So, I was trying to reduce my hz to 60, so Nvidia Adaptive vsync would keep it at 60. I don't really want to use the vsync in-game because of heard of some negative effects it can have.

    This is n't really a problem in games were I can cap the fps using a command, but certain games do not have a console for me to cap my frames.

    Adaptive vsync will stabilize to your set frame rate it is not just 60hz. I recommend you to keep it in 75hz itself
