Unhappy Re: From default NV at 75 vert HZ to nvidia at max 58Hz, what's wrong?

Well I tried #hashing the modes and then removing them completely this achieved nothing until I added the Option "VertRefresh" "75" line. This now allows me 800x600 @75Hz for the first time using the "nvidia" driver. I Then tried removing all resolutions and depths having only a resolution of 1024x768 as follows:

Section "Screen"
Device "Device[0]"
Identifier "Screen[0]"
Monitor "Monitor[0]"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768"

Unfortunately this hasn't helped, I'm guessing there is a method to apply this much the same as the 75Hz but I'm still under a month on Linux for the first time and still discovering A LOT...

In regards to the optimal refresh, under windows it defaults to 75Hz, when purchased it the display model was at this and I ran it for 8 months at this on Windows and there has never been any visable flicker/waveyness at this vert Hz. The extra 15-17Hz makes a tremendous difference being that the flicker/waveyness is very noticeable at 60Hz and quite nauseous after a couple of hours use.

I notice the nVidia staff has quietened down... not surprised...
