I second this suggestion. I had my monitor running at 60Hz and I was happy
with it--flicker free in fact. Until a friend of mine who is a graphic
designer came over. He took one look at it and asked me how I could bear it.
We changed it to something over 60 and I instantly saw what he was seeing.
The screen image suddenly become solid.

I highly recommend avoiding using a refresh rate of 60Hz. Unless of course
you live somewhere where the electricity is NOT 60Hz also (like Mars maybe).
