Solution, the fps wasn't above 60.
However, I notice quite a bit of choppyness until FPS is above 60.

Tell me about it. My brother's got and LCD and I got a headache from the ghosting, but he had no idea why it was bothering me. But low refresh rate on LCDs shouldn't have that big of a difference since they don't draw the picture the same way as CRT monitors do, they kind of float from one picture to the next. This is what gives all the ghosting and other problems on LCDs.
My original monitor for my new computer was an Acer 19" 8ms LCD through newegg. I was really excited to get it because it was cheap for a 19 inch and response time and it had just about all positive reviews. It turned out to be a huge misteak. The instant I loaded up Counter Strike, I regretted buying it. Not only was the refresh rate of 75 causing massive eye strain, the 8ms response time (though all I saw were postive reviews of no problems with 8ms) produced a big ghosting/blur effect that I couldn't stand at all and the next two days later, it was in the box heading back. Then I had to deal with all the computer people at all the local stores' confused looks when telling why I needed a CRT monitor. Luckily I found this KDS 19" Flat Screen CRT.
Now that I think about it I often hear how people want really high fps in CS, that is how this thread also got started. I wonder if there is something about how CS is rendered that makes it so sensitive to fps.
I know I really went into detail of when it happens, but I didn't mean it to be like I suffer from it every second when I play games. Its usually after a little time passes when I start to feel a migrane or eye strain when playing games. Also, depending on the game depends on how I feel. For example, it is easy to not notice it as much because I'm so into the game at that moment. However, Counter Strike is probably the only FPS exeption where like said, anything under 60 is too low for my eyes, its probably the nature of how CS runs that it bothers me so much.

And pretty much mean instant death to anyone playing respectable players....
Yea, its extremly easy to see and be effected by a lower fps in CS. In something like BF2, I usually have 40-80 fps, which doesn't bother me all that much to see it choppy, but in CS, 40 fps would be vomit causing.
