Shoot at 25fps with a 180 degree shutter angle, or shoot 24fps with 172.8 degree shutter angle.

Computers displayed on CRT monitors can be a wide variety of scan- or refresh-rates. Unlike television display, computers can often be adjusted to display at different refresh rates. Displaying computer or TV images on an LCD monitor avoids the problem altogether, since an LCD does not "scan" the image top-to-botom like a CRT. LCD displays generally don't have flicker issues.
