to my knowledge you can set monitor refresh rate via display properties, also in the nvidia control panel there should be a setting for refresh rates that set the rate that you specify, should be a option to match refresh rate with monitor refresh rate.

i'm not too familiar with the nvidia control panel but i know that the ati that i use has a option to sync the refresh rate of the monitor to the video card.

i know its not much but browse thru you nvidia control panel and see what options are available
