I, too, am bothered by the flicker of a CRT screen. Anything below 75Hz and my head starts to hurt after a while. I second the recommendation to get an LCD monitor. There is no flicker problem and text is so sharp it just jumps out at you. There are many good monitors out there. I have had good luck with Viewsonic LCD screens in the past and present - good contrast, no dead pixels and a relatively low price.
in reply to (OT) good monitor or screen for coding please suggest
