60? Any higher it'll probably say its out of range

If you can go to 75hz, anything lower can give you sore eyes.

WAT?

the OP is asking about CRTs :annoyed:

for me, anything lower than 85Hz flickers, I prefer 100hz, and up to 200hz for gaming.

It's also resolution-dependent. Running SVGA or thereabouts, a lot of monitors could go up above 85 to around 120kHz pretty easily. Most would go down to around 60-75kHz as you got near their max resolution.

Yup, I used to play Quake 3 @ 1024x768 200hz on my Sony 20" :nerd:

CRTs will.
There was an issue with Windows where it would revert to 60hz, but not because the monitors weren't capable.

I know some of older CRTs we had, in 1992, 14" AOC, which was a tube CRT, wasn't a flatscreen. You had maybe high reso that you could use but the manual said they were in "interlacing" mode and some of them were like 45-60Hz .. :D Not sure what was 640x480 thou maybe 70Hz I guessed.

+1

60 is NOT a refresh rate you want to use on a CRT Speedy (very hard on the eyes), if the CRT wont do more than 60, its not a support resolution.....sheeech!

I think the average would be 85hz @ 1024x768
