Question Help with Refresh rates

I have read up on how to change my refresh rate on my monitor and it doesnt seem to be working. I am running at a res of 1280X1024 and my monitor can support 85hz at that resolution. I have tried going to system settings and configuring under display but it still feels like it is set at 60hz even after reset. I then tried going to the config file under etc/x11/xf86config to manually config it there. It doesnt seem to be working. Do I need to change the horizontal freq to make it look like it does @85 hz under windows? Or should changing the vertical refresh rate be all that I need to change?
help, just writing this hurts me eyes

You should just plug in the horiz & vert frequncy ranges with the correct driver & colour depth and let the x-server do the rest.

tried that, doesnt work. Thats how it installed at first. But it was running at 60hz, I can tell. I want it to run at 85 hz @ 1280x1024, which my monitor and video card both support. How can I do that?
