What would be an optimum display refresh rate for an Intel 815e motherboard ? I am running Win2000 Pro.

That all depends on your eye balls. In my office my monitor sits in front of a window and above are florescent lights. Now the outside light changes during the day and the above lights flicker at 60Hz, incendently the same rate as a standard SVGA display setting. For most people its not noticeable unless you have astigmatism (like me) so I set my refresh rate to 75-85Hz and adjust the properties on the monitor so that my displayed info looks correct. The downside is if your monitor can't handle that rate it will hum or squeal as time goes on, so you may want to gauge your setting on whats best for you. Most monitors are designed to live a long 5-7years at 60Hz, but will have shorter lives if pushed beyond 80Hz for sure.

I have read that the most comfortable setting is between 75-85Hz. Ideally go with what is the most comfortable for your eyes.
60-75Hz also will give your monitor a longer life then higher frequencies.
