I have a Viewsonic P95F+. What would be the optimum refresh rate to run at 1024x768? I currently have it set to only 75. Would raising it possible damage my monitor?

Displays a maximum resolution of 2048x1536; 1600x1200 resolution at 87Hz flicker-free refresh rate for easy-on-the-eyes viewing.
2048x1536 @ 68Hz
1920x1440 @ 73Hz
1856x1392 @ 75Hz
1600x1200 @ 87Hz

best thing to do is go to the source <A HREF="http://www.viewsonic.com/support/desktopdisplays/crtmon..." target="_new">Click</A>

* EDIT
of coarse if i read your post a little better i would have notice the resolution.

so sometimes its worth checking other countries sites also...<A HREF="http://www.viewsoniceurope.com/UK/Support/NonCurrentCRT..." target="_new">click</A> but this one only states

2048 x 1536 @ 68Hz
1920 x 1440 @ 73Hz
1856 x 1392 @ 75Hz
1600 x 1200 @ 87Hz
1280 x 1024 @ 101Hz

im not sure what the next Hz is...but i would guess at 110hz for the 1024 assume that that would be safe.

75 is fine. Anything faster than 60Hz is better for your eyes than say, a bright flourecent bulb at 60Hz.

At 60Hz nearby flourecent lights will make the monitor flicker. 75Hz and above is easy on the eyes. In my opinion you don't want easy multiples of 60 either (90 might flash every 3rd cycle of the lights, 120 might flash every other cycle of the lights, etc). That leaves 75, 85, etc as good options.

Monitors tend to last longer if you don't push the refresh rate near it's limit. My current monitor overheats on hot days at 85Hz, so I have it set at 75Hz.
