what is your monitor, and what resolution are you running ? your graphics card support up to 120 HZ refresh rate maybe more, but it depends on the monitor not the graphics card...for eg if you're running 1080P resolution your maximim refresh rate would be 60 or 70 depending on the monitor.
you can always check the "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" because selecting a higher refresh rate that your monitor doesn't support can kill it instantly

if your using a flat panel monitor (lcd, led lcd, plasma, etc) then the refresh rate will be 60Hz. there are a few exceptions but thats on 3d monitors and a select few newer non-3d. they allow for 120hz. but 60 is fine they dont strain your eyes the way CRTs once did.
if your using an old CRT monitor, the old ones that are like a foot deep. then you can select a refresh rate wide range of refesh rates. anything over 75 is pretty tolerable to most people. back when i last had one i ran it at 120 and that was good for all day use. with small breaks from it here and there.

now if you have a flat panel and your eyes are strained quickly then you should either turn on a light in the room, (eyes adjust to the surrounding light not the light directly in front of you), or go see an eye doctor. half the things that can go wrong with your eyes will make using a monitor quite taxing.

Try to disable the "hide modes not supported by this monitor". It should be in Screen resolution / advanced settings/Monitor.

Sorry I'm not understanding what the problem is......? 60hz is normal.

I looked up the specs and this is what I found. Your maximum resolution and refresh rates are:

1) 1280x1024 @60Hz, or

2) 1280x1024 @75Hz

I recommend you find the DRIVERS for the monitor and install them so that you can ONLY choose supported modes when you change the resolution.

You should choose one of these two. It doesn't really matter which. Most flat-screens use 60Hz. I suspect the 75Hz is to be compatible with PAL format (European) easier which uses 25Hz (3x25Hz = 75Hz).

Summary:
1) Install the drivers for the monitor
2) choose one of the above choices

i already turn off "hide modes not supported by this monitor" but it's still one choose 60Hz. I forced change refresh desktop in catalyst control center at 75 Hz and changed resolution which you wrote 1280x1024 and 75 Hz. I see some progression but still not good for my eyes i try with drivers for monitor but i try this monitor with second new computer one month layer bought and it's good there are new parts too but we will see with drivers

Are you saying 60Hz is not enough for your eyes? Whut?

I also do not know what you are talking about with the "not good enough."

This is a flat screen monitor. If it was an older CRT style that had flicker then I'd understand as I needed at least 85Hz to avoid the flicker effect.

The images on flat screens do not flicker.

Can you watch a High Definition Television?

99% of the televisions are 60Hz (update the screen 60x per second). The actual video for TV is only 30FPS (the same image is shown for two screen "updates") and movies are 24FPS.

Basically I don't understand what you are referring to.
