the frame refresh rate is the rate at which your video card and your cpu can redraw a scene. in 3d apps and games like quake, a high refresh rate means much smoother graphics. this has nothing to do with your horizontal and vertical monitor refresh rates, tho. a fast cpu and a good graphics card can redraw at 100 or more frames a second, depending highly on the complexity of the scene, but this is far below the monitor refresh rates, which are measured in kHz. changing your monitor specs will not improve the graphics performance.

I know that if I change the refresh rate of the monitor, it does nothing with the performance. But it would be better for your eyes to see a display with more than 80Hz, than 70.
