On the topic of the refresh rate, the section you might look at is here:
Section "Monitor" Identifier "MyMonitor" HorizSync 31.5 - 82.0 VertRefresh 50-100 EndSectionRegistered Linux user #270181
As techieMoe said, you cannot change the Hz directly (well you sort of can, but you need /etc/X11/xorg.conf to be set up properly first).
Check out your exact monitor specs according to the manufacturers info and fill the "monitor" section of xorg.conf, as instructed by techieMoe. You then have to restart the X server with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE.
Then you will be able to change the Hz in Gnome/KDE."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
