LCD refresh rates

I just replaced my 15" LCD with a 17" Samsung 740BX. Overall the screen looks very good, but in 5-10% of the screen I am seeing wavy lines, like the refresh rate is not quite right. Recommended rate is 60 hz but this setting is significantly worse than 75 hz which I am now using. Would upgrading to a better video card or to DVI help this?

75 or 72 is better than the default of 60. Set yours to what looks best.
