Can you actually tell the difference between 85 and 75 or 80? Even if
you can, I still suggest you test as I originally suggested, to see with
your own eyes what high resolution can do for fonts.

It seems to me that running a display at its maximum refresh would be
like running a car full throttle all the time, which accelerates wear
and shortens life. I run all mine at 60. Not everybody's eyes can see or
are bothered by screen flicker.
