Well, if the monitor supports certain modes with >=85Hz vertrefresh, the 
display driver should as well (if the RAMDAC supports it, that is). On a 
sidenote, I have my two IIyama VMP454s running at 1600x1200x32 @ 100Hz 
without problem. As for TFTs, I was under the impression that the analog 
refresh rate doesn't matter because the internal analog->digital panel 
converter has no glow decay like a CRT (same goes for the refresh rate 
of a panel connected via DVI btw).
