What method are using to determine the refresh rate? Are you using compiz? If so, try changing the refresh rate to 60Hz with:



gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/detect_refresh_rate 0
gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/refresh_rate 60

Did you enable the restricted driver(System--->Administration--->Hardware Drivers)? Are you running Compiz? My nvidia card(s) is also reported to run at 51Hz and I can watch videos just fine.
