Oh, my! I stayed up to 7am without any sleep to get the card to do just a sucky 1024x768x16bits with a similarly bad refresh rate. And the card is sloooow. Or so it seems. But Google tells me other people are also having problems with it, which makes me a little bit more comfortable (at least I'm not going nuts thinking that I'm consistently making stupid mistakes -- which are more common than what I'd like to admit).
