    i've been wondering if anyone out there knows what the best hz setting to have your monitor at. spending hours a day on it can be fatiguing at times.

    That really depends on the monitor and what it can handle. You need to look into the monitors specifications and determine it from there.
    Sometimes higher refresh rates can be damaging to the monitor but nice on your eyes!

    i've got a dell m991. it has in the display settings a range from 60 hz to 100 hz, it also has a check box to only display the hz that it can run properly without damage. would 100 hz be better for my eyes than 60? or the other way round?

    thanks

    Do a test. Set it to 60Hz, then look at the monitor out of the corner of your eye. Then change it 100Hz, then look out of the corner of your eye again. ;)

    The blinking is not so readily apparent when looking at it straight on, but it can cause some serious eye fatigue in short order.
