The game is really cool, but I can't get my refresh rate to go above 60hz which is annoying becuase the screen keeps tearing and I don't want to put vsync on. Does anyone know how I can change the refresh rate is this game? My refresh rate stays the same in all my other games so I don't know what the problem is.

Doom 3 limits your FPS in the regular game. I believe to 60 fps like you stated. Try running a time demo, in that the limit is disabled. I'd try looking around and seeing if there is a way to edit the config file to allow higher fps in regular mode.

Yeah it does, but I haven't noticed any tearing though.
Originally posted by scutzi128 Tearing is usually what occurs when there are more FPS than the monitor is refreching which is why turning the refresh rate up eliminates this. I just can't get doom to let me turn up my refresh rate.
Try lowering the Settings one time, advanced settings in the game and see what you get.
I am Playing it too at the Same Res you are with the same refresh rate on the same screen size...(19" LCD = 21" CRT).

Yeah I am running everything Maxed out on mine.
I was thinking to that maybe My LCD wouldn't show tearing...
Nah, I'll pass on this even though lasted I checked Target was selling it at 30 bucks. That's what I saw in the store tonight. I haven't played or had Doom 3 on my machine since October, and the prospect of the expsansion being more of the same doesn't appeal to me. Not that I was expecting a big change or anything.
I have to say that I like how IGN gave it an 8.4, but if you read the review it doesn't sound like it deserved that score at all. Just seems like it was given that score based only on the name of the game and not the content.
It's true that a FPS is about running around and shooting things, but the way that HL, HL2 and FarCry pull it off, Doom just doesn't measure up imo.
I was impressed with the game to begin with but it lost it's lustre when it became apparent that nothing was going to change. If I remember right, somebody here had summed it up like this: Enter a room, kill some things, find some stuff, enter another room, etc.
I won't be picking the new game up unless I see something that indicates that the basic gameplay has improved.
