PC version defaulting to 50Hz and won't change? + Vsync solved!

So I have been playing this game on my 360 and loving it, but I thought I'd get the PC version just because according to the internet my GPU would net me like 350 fps. Anyways there's been a slight problem, namely that the game won't save my refresh rate settings. I go to 60Hz hit apply, back out and back in and it's defaulted back to 50Hz. Anyone know why it's doing this and how to solve it?

Also for people have screen tearing issues, just turn V-Sync off, save changes, then turn V-Sync back on and you should be good.

I'm sure the refresh rate doesn't actually resets.

Mine always resets to 25hz but the game is still running at 60fps with vsync on. I had to do the same for vsync to stick.

I noticed that too but the framerate is still at 60, I just enabled v sync in the nvidia control panel to fix those issues.

i was wondering why it was doing that. every time i set it to 60 it goes back to 25 yet it seems to be running too smooth to be 25. i don't think i need to have v sync off so i have it on it looks good. i looked at the game file for dmc and it says there its 25fps too so that still worries me. hopefully they put out a patch or something to fix it lol

I haven't had any issues with screen tearing or V Sync. Speaking of the Hz though my game wont change away from 59 Hz.
