Strobe modes include: "LightBoost", "Turbo240" (EIZO), "ULMB", and "BENQ Blur Reduction" for zero motion blur during fast motion.
The same type of strobing is also being introduced as "low persistence" mode in Oculus VR Development Kit 2.

If you want 60Hz color quality with 120Hz, you often have to pay more (e.g. Eizo FG2421) which is a much better-color-quality 120Hz monitor, with an optional strobe mode included. Also, overclockable 120Hz monitors (QNIX) do not include the optional strobe modes, if you want the order-of-magnitude improvement in fast-motion clarity. (also called "low persistence")

ohh yeah.. thanks for reminding me about that.

i tried asking for the price of eizo monitors but sadly, its already above my price range. and i dont want to spend that much for just a monitor. i think ill be fine with a simple 120hz that doesnt strain my eyes so much like my IPS panel now.

Sorry reply late.
I have the EARLY version only, was very lucky to get one that goes to 144.
Later models as mentioned should do you just fine...

The overclockable 1440p IPS panels would be pretty good, if it weren't using PWM-dimming. So I hesitate on that, since I'm not sure of the precise cause of your eyestrain -- it could be coming from PWM dimming.

That said I heard many good things about the BENQ XL2420TE reducing eyestrain, despite the poorer color quality (compared to the typical IPS display). The new XL2420Z is a newer model of the same monitor, (if you get that model, make sure you get Version 2 firmware). Those have those eye-friendly modes called "ZeroFlicker" (PWM-free) and "Low Blue Mode", making possible 120Hz with less eyestrain, if you're not too picky about colors. That said, less discerning people may not even notice much of a difference, especially if you're more motion-sensitive or PWM-sensitive than color-sensitive.

So your original thoughts in your original post is right on the money if you play lots of games involving panning/strafing/turning (RTS and FPS). So the BENQ XL2420TE is good for this -- or the newer BENQ XL2420Z (but get Version 2). The XL2420TE is the cheapest PWM-free 120Hz monitor.
