Refresh Rate and Color Bit issues

Windows 7 system.

Wanted to stop some flicker in my monitor and was advised to go to 72 Hz.  My monitor only allows for 60 hz at 1920 by 1080 (32 bit color).  I can make a "custom" setting, but what would you suggest?  If I push it to 72 hz in custom can/will that harm my monitor?

Also does 32 bit vs 16 bit color matter?  At 16 bit I can get a higher hz.  I use Photoshop for my work and don't know how that will affect my monitor to printer colors. I'm only using 8 bit color in Photoshop most of the time.  Will the display at 16bit be more true to what I'll print?

Whats the make and model of the monitor and how is it connected to the system? What video card are you using? If the monitor doesn't support 72Hz then you'd get an out of range error on the screen when you set it to 72Hz.
Hi, AFTerry
You said " My monitor only allows for 60 hz at 1920 by 1080 (32 bit color)" so I won't go any higher than that as you may damage your monitor.
Also you didn't stated your video card specs, the version of the OS and the version of Photoshop.
As for the relationship between monitor and printer is a one on one relationship and you'll need to create a profile that will match your printer to your system. Also I've heard that a calibration of the monitor should be made.

Generally, you shouldn't notice any flicker - the eye/brain (face on) cannot see much flicker above 25 Fps. Vision out of the side of the eye is more sensitive - at 60 Hz I wouldn't expect you to see any flicker at all.

Have you tried with a different display or where it's an option, a different interface?
