If you don't use dual monitors there is a trick to get your vertical refresh rate higher.
someone else with a fx5xxx card experienced problems using this and I think his monitor got out of range
Issue xvidtune in a terminal and click cancel in the box that pops up

- Code: Select all
Option "DynamicTwinView" "False"
at the end - and voila, you get 60Hz
