It's mostly for games, Call of duty series, as 72 hz @ 1024x768, it's just...Impossible to enjoy. Lines going down the screen, impossible to play.
And I really don't like widescreens, not very huge monitors. Something small, and powerfull, that's what I'd love to have.
The thing is - they probably don't make such stuff anymore...I used to have a BenQ ( kept it since 2002 ), until it recently died on me, and it was really great, it wasn't a widescreen, could supporst 75hz @ any resolution...Yeah...Sigh.
Lines going down the screen sounds like tearing if I am understanding correctly.
V-sync should solve that no?
Also a high refrsh rate is not going to necessarily help with a lcd monitor even if you had a monitor with the response time necessary to handle it.
Unfortunately, the only screens i have seen with that sort of native res would be very old, very very poor quality 15-17" screens. Not sure if anything like you are after exists, perhaps 12 x 10 but not sure.
V-sync doesn't help, mouse movements become all numb and stuff, really cannot solve it that way.
I am positive high refresh rate could solve it, because it has in the past , and I really don't want to go with a CRT here...
The only thing that could help, is probably some new series of LDC monitors with a very high refresh rate
I meant the "tearing" effect, or is it called the "ghosting" ?
My monitor is Samsung Syncmaster 933SN, a cheap choice, I know...
What I've done today, is, I've tried "overclocking" it, and I think i got it to do what i want.
Whenever I would turn on any game and put on resolution of 1024x768, the monitor would show 72 hz. That is what it does by default, as standard. What I've done, is, I've overclocked the 72 hz to 75 hz using RefreshForce program or smthing like that. I know it may shorten the life of this monitor, but I don't care, as it's cheap...
The new question stands... Can I try to overclock it to 80 hz or 85 hz ? That would be bollocks
I'd be surprised if you actually managed to "overclock" it at all. You might be able to force the video card to send a higher number of frames to it every second, but it probably won't display any more than its maximum number anyways, despite the higher setting.
