RR(Refresh Rate) - the "speed" of redrawing a picture on your monitor. The value in Hz(Hertz) displays how many times an electronic beam runs over a screen to make a complete picture during 1 second. So 60 Hz means 60 times a second. 80 Hz - 80 times and so on. The bigger the amount is, the healthier your eyes are ;) But it all takes video memory...
As for TFT & LCD displays RR is a kind of fake as they have no electronic tube. The actual parameter will be the matrix reaction time in miliseconds...

As Joseph already told ya, a midend CRT monitor still is better than qool TFT/LCD one for video/gaming/etc cause of inertial reaction of LCD's. They're great for typing/reading (if brightness set to not more than 10 ;) )
