1024 x 768 x 24 bit color. I also try to configure as fast a refresh rate as the monitor allows. 85 to 90 Hz looks as solid as a photograph.

Refresh rate is the number of time the screen is re-drawn. For computer monitors anything over 70hz is desirable. Going lower than that will cause the screen to flicker. Usually if you select a refresh out of range it will garble the display. I've never heard of it damaging the monitor, at least in a Windows OS. A standard 15-17" monitor will usually run at 75hz at 1024x768.

Just so you know I've burned up a monitor once when using refresh too high for my monitor. Course this was under Windows 3.1 (didn't have option to revert back if display was garbled like Windows 95/98 has automatically). Took probably 1-2 minutes of nervous key stroke and mouse clicks trying to change resolution back while looking at a garbled screen, before the monitor started to make a funny noise and then shrunk to a white pinpoint at the center of the screen. Failed to turn on after that. YMMV, Steven L.
