no, I have seen however that going from 60hz.....to75hz, will give an increase in frame rates :) why that is I have no idea
Games sometimes use 'vertical sync' to prevent screen tearing. What this does is lock your framerate to 60fps (or 30fps if your PC can't get to 60) for a smoother image. When your PC can render a game faster than your refresh rate, you get screen tearing. Screen tearing is the game image being rendered faster than the monitor can display it. The monitor is halfway displaying an image and your computer has a new image to display so the last half is something different than the first. It may look like you screen tore in half with a noticeable cut between the two frames. Personally, I don't find this to be a problem so I turn vertical sync off.
