No, I mean, leave the lower numbers (30 and 56) alone, but reduce the higher 
numbers (81 and 75) so that the card doesn't send data to the monitor at its 
maximum specified rate, but slightly below that.

I'm not good with dotclocks etc., so I'm not sure what the lowest number is 
that will still give you the required resolution.  I'm not even sure if LCDs 
work the same way in this regard as analogue monitors, but it won't do any 
harm to try.  Hopefully someone else will be able to provide more specific 
details on this, if it's a worthwhile idea :)
