Default Re: Monitor Refresh Rate

Ah, thank you for the very fast reply. I understand now.

As a follow up question, would the refresh rate of my monitor be tied into the fps I obtain in games? I have ut2004 which for some reason is capped at 50fps when I play online and it feels very jerky, whereas in windows it doesn't (and is capped at 85fps). I was hoping the reason its capped at 50 was to do with my monitor being capped at 50hz, but as I can see that isn't true.

I'm a little confused, because other people I know run it at 85fps in linux also and some I've heard are capped at 62 fps.
