    Question Gaming and ubuntu in general with 120 hz monitor

    Hey guys

    I recently installed ubuntu 13.04 on my machine. I did a apt-get update/upgrade and installed all drivers and stuff, including nvidia settings driver.
    My problem now is that i can't' really run anything in 120 hz. My monitor is benq xl2411t and supports up to 144 hz. I have the dual dvi cable and everything so its not a hardware problem, its also working on windows.
    So, my problem here is that when i run a game, in this case counter-strike, in 100/120/144 hz, the screen flips out. Some times i can't see anything, sometimes i see part of the game etc.
    This only happens when i run the game in fullscreen. Also, in ubuntu i have set the resolution to 1920x1080 in nvidia settings. I can feel that my mouse isnt lagging and that 120 hz is on, but all the windows when i drag them around is really laggy and it feels like 60 hz.

    I am not good at explaining but i hope someone understands and maybe can help me set up 120 hz for real.

    If it matters in any way here is my xorg.cfg

    The VertRefresh range that you've specified in your xorg.conf does not include 120 Hz.
    None but ourselves can free our minds
