MiST, at least in the case of the minimig core, will output a PAL @ 50Hz or NTSC @ 60Hz, both in either 15kHz or scandoubled to 30kHz. This will be usually detected as a 720x576p (PAL 50Hz) or 640x480p (NTSC 60Hz) mode. There is no framerate conversion, and probably never will be.

Actually, you'd be surprised how many monitors/TVs actually support 50Hz/30kHz on the VGA input. Not all of course, so if you want to be sure your monitor will work, a short test is needed, or google for your manufacturer/model, there might be someone with the same one.

Samsungs usually work, Dells too (some even support 15kHz mode!), LG monitor TVs work great, I have bad experiences with HP (semi-pro) monitors.

EDIT: fixed explanation
