Since moving to the Nvidia card I've felt like some of the smoothness was lost, but honestly I just chalked it up to my imagination. Maybe it isn't though. So if I understand what you're saying, the strobing effect might not be running at 120hz even though my monitors are refreshing at 120hz?

What would be the simplest way to check what's going on there?
Check each monitor's menu to see if it's running in 3D mode. It should say "3D Mode" in the top right.

Ok, I got it figured out, and it indeed was NOT working. The monitors weren't in 3d mode. I'd used the AMD card for so long that I completely forgot about the little green LED on the monitor bezel to indicate 3d mode was enabled. I put the AMD back in and re-ran the setup and it worked just like it always had. The smoothness returned too. Disappointing, but I should have done my homework before buying the 980.

So at this point, it looks like I have two options.
1. Sell the 980 and stick with AMD
or
2. Keep the 980 and upgrade to a current monitor that utilizes ULMB via hardware.

Does that sound about right?

If those are really are my options, then do you think there's enough difference in hardware ULMB vs. Strobelight to warrant the cost?

Thanks again Toasty.
