Its better for it to be higher

I can tell the difference at 60hz compared to 70hz for example, even from a first glance.

Because you can tell at a lower, but might not know it consciously, you may get headaches etc.

Yeah, if it's too low, you'll get a flickering type effect.

I can tell easily by looking at a monitor is it is at 60hz. I keep mine at 75hz. I don't know how anyone can look at a ctr monitor running at 60hz!

Well usually the higher the better. But just take it as high as you want to, I've heard that some people don't like anything higher than for example 75hz.
But I love my 100hz

Yeah, I do find past 75hz, my eyes started to blur when I had my old monitor. Don't know if its the monitor or what, since this one I have now only goes to 75hz.

Though if it was the monitor and it could reach 100hz for example, if a game was going at 100fps, and you had V Sync off, you wouldn't get any of that flickering!

Though to be honest I don't really see a difference between 80hz and 100hz.

The higher the better untill you get to the stage where your monitor can't handel it and it goes fuzzy. 100hz is probably the standard and anything over 130 gets fuzzy
