It would be better runing at a higher resolution as creates a better picture and easyer on the eyes

it says it can run at 85hz but i did'nt know weather to try it or not ?

would setting it to it's maximum be best ?

deepblueuk, if it's a 17" monitor, you should set it to 1024 x 768, 32 bit colour and an 85hz refresh rate, the only obstacle you may have to this, is if your gfx card cannot support it.

If it's a TFT monitor, the normal setting is 60Hz

If it's a CRT monitor (normal type with tube) - then the best setting (as has been said), is 85Hz.

If it is a TFT, look in the manual for the standard setting - it is quite importatnt to use this on a TFT display.
