Id say it gets close to flicker free around 30-40 for me. But i'm used to playing at like 10... which is horrible!

theres no such thing as flicker free on LCD, but on CRT, yea 60fps give or take some, would be about right.

Depends on what your minitor's Hertz rate is rated for, I guess.

" Depends on what your minitor's Hertz rate is rated for, I guess." <--no, any CRT's rate is fast enough.

Yeah but don't most LCD's have a refresh rate of 60 hertz? My friends can go up to I think 70 or 85. Why wouldn't it be flicker free?
