120hz not supported on 800x600 (MSI AE2420 3D AIO PC)

Hi guys, i buy a MSI AE2420 3D AIO PC today, i asked the company about the maximum screen refresh rate support of the LCD and they told me it supports 120hz.

now when i go to display settings and set the resolution on the 800x600 i cant put the refresh rate on 120hz, the maximum supported is 75hz?!

i understand that the LCD supports 120hz only on 1920x1080 full hd 3D mode, am i right?!

  1. Yes and I think it supports it at 1650x1080 too. But why would you need a 800x600 resolution for anything in the first place? Except Diablo 2, of course.
  2. Im a pro counter-strike 1.6 player so my optimal resolution is 800x600 @ 100 at least!
  3. I see. Is there some kind of problem coming from the 75Hz? Any sort of lagging/stuttering?
  4. Yeap, when the refreshrate is under 100hz gameplay is not smooth and you can see some noise lines when you move your cursor fast!
  5. OK, try right clicking the desktop-->Screen Resolution-->Advanced Settings-->"Monitor" tab. From there select what refresh rate you want (it should have 100 and 120Hz). Then go into the game and try setting the resolution for the application itself.
  6. Dude, i told u 100 and 120hz is only available on 3D mode @ 1920x1080.

    800x600 available refreshrate is maximum @ 75hz
  7. I don't know what monitor you have, and connection you are using, but at least with a dual link DVI connection, I can get 120hz at 1080p, 720p, 800x600 and probably any resolution less than 1080p. I just tested it on my monitor.

    What type of monitor and connection does that PC use?
