I see. So, I've seen alot of suggestions being thrown around. People correcting each other, etc. I don't know alot about computer, not as much as you guys. What should I do to stop the flickering? Up the refresh rate? Get Drivers? Alot of you guys corrected each other. So I have no idea what to do anymore. Since theres so many opinions being thrown around and so many people disagreeing with certain opinions, then what do I do? Thanks. Please keep the help coming..

that means they were never the best for gaming.
set the refresh rate as high as it supports.
Fact: Lower refresh rates on CRT monitors can cause epileptic seizures
'The image on these screens is continually “refreshed” or re-painted and this means that the image can move, or flicker. The more often the screen is refreshed the more stable the image is and the less it flickers. The refresh rate is expressed in “Hertz” (usually written Hz): the higher the Hz number, the less the flicker'

hmm... thanks for pointing that out - but the topic also includes refresh rates and CRT monitors in posts above - it's a simple factoid that someone just may find interesting.
