If 60Hz is the preferred rate, then why is the monitor telling the computer 
that it should run at 75Hz?  Surely *that* is the question.  {Of course, it 
could all just be due to a badly-shielded cable .....  that wouldn't really 
be your fault if it were hard-wired at the monitor end, though.}

I've never had any trouble with the open source nv drivers.

Does anyone know if there is a project going on to improve the state of open 
source drivers for graphics cards?  Because I would really like to offer some 
support to this effort.
