Default Refresh Rates

Just a quick one, what sort of refresh rates should I be looking for if I wanted a fairly inexpensive monitor (LCD/TFT) that could display games like BF2, Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 on Ultra High and High settings, and not display a nasty refresh line?

I bumped up the components in my PC and the games all play on high, and look great on a CRT, but not so nice on a friend's 26" LCD...

I want to get a bigger screen than the 15" I currently have so wondered what sort of refresh rate I should be looking at. It doesn't have to be amazing, but I would like the picture to stay in one piece!

Thanks guys!

I currently have a 19" LCD samsung monitor, check it out and it is definatly more than enough to play the games you listed, i've played HL2, NFSMW and GTASA recently and they all play at maximum resolution/detail without a hitch. Mind you that has partly to do with your video card, a 128+ card is recommended for such activities
