    [SOLVED] Input lag of 60hz on 75hz monitor VS. Native 60hz

    Hi guys. If I put the refresh rate of a 75hz monitor to 60hz and play video games, will that generate more input lag than a native 60hz monitor? Or do they both generate the same input lag? (In regards of using vsync) Thank you in advance. Ps. Does it even function like native 60hz in general?
