The monitor is called the Asus VG248QE. It's modded with the nvidia gsync unit. At the moment, they are quite expensive, since the monitor has to be modified. Didn't buy it specifically for mame, but it's a nice bonus.
And yes, the monitor will run at any refresh rate between 30hz and 144hz. I tested rtype and it runs at 55.017somethinghz, but the screen refresh is perfectly matching that, because it's got that fluid motion to it.
Some people obviously wouldn't be able to tell the difference. But it's always annoyed me. And I know there is an AMD/ATI card out there that can run custom fixed frequencies, but I'm not so sure it can do it on the fly like this.
The best thing about it for me is that it's effectively vsync with no input lag. Input lag in 2D games is worse than playing with minor input lag in a first person shooter imo, I don't know why.
