Default Will switching my Hertz hurt my computer?

Currently set at 60Hz... Will switching to a higher setting give me any ill effects?

are you talking about your monitor? 60hz is not good on the eyes. Set it to like 70 or higher. no ill effects unless you have your face pressed up to the screen for long periods. then you get radiation going into ya.

Actually, I'd try Avis or Budget. . . . although Enterprise does use GM models in their lineup.

Unless your monitor is ancient, there shouldn't be a problem. My refresh rate is set at 100mhz. You can always check "Hide modes this monitor cannot display" if you are worried. It should be right under the refresh rate drop down menu.
