By using SwapBuffers() function, the FPS always limited by monitor's refresh frequency, i.e. 75 frames per second against my monitor's 75MHz refresh frequency. How can I get rid of this ?

Turn VSYNC off in your video card drivers.

Or if you want to do it in software, look into this:

Pretty much, so long as you get the extension set up (GLee, for example, does this automatically) then its simply a matter of calling a couple of functions.

note, the above is only a request, the driver is free to ignore it if the current settings allow it to (for example, v-sync forced on).

Also, if you relase thinsg dont try to force v-sync off, give the user a choice, this makes for happy users [smile]
