Bought a acer AL 1714 lcd monitor for a budget system.Set refresh rate to 60 and adjusted screen asnd looks good.Noticed this morning that it has the capability of setting refresh rate as high as 75.Set it at that and it didnt look near as good.Maybe have to readjust.Should i just leave it alone or would it be better to set refresh rate higher.have to deliver it today and not sure if any major advantages to setting it higher.All other flat screens i have bought had 60 capabitity only.By the way it is a 17".Since budget system ,doesn't have DVI.

Actually, LCD monitors sync themselves to the incoming AC line frequency. In the US, that is 60Hz. Changing the refresh rate to any other setting will actually degrade the performance of the monitor, so I suggest you return it to the 60Hz setting and call it a job well done. (y)
