Hello,
Im running a Nvida 560ti video card and was about to purchase this monitor BenQ XL2420T 24IN 120HZ LCD Monitor

I did some research and found a couple forum replies on the internet of some people saying that the monitor would need a beefy video card.

I do not ever plan to do 3D gaming, i simply want a good 120hz gaming monitor.

So will my card be able to handle that monitor?

Thanks

My son has twin Asus GTX 560 Tis (overclocked to 1020 Mhgz if memory serves) on the Asus version of that monitor. No complaints so far. When BF3 beta came out, there was no SLI support and he played w/\just one card .... he said it was slow but not that bad.

BTW, I don't even like 3D movies and 1st time I tried playing Batman AC on it in 3D I got motion sickness .... but I went back and played again and had a ball....easily the best gaming experience ever....give it a try sometime

It's not that the card can't handle the monitor, it's that the card may/may not be able to produce 120fps in most games.

It'll handle it fine, but I wouldn't expect 120fps in every game

This. And there is no point in getting a 120 Hz monitor if you aren't planning on playing at 120 FPS.

The only games i really play are CSGO, LoL, SC2, Wildstar.
CSGO would be the most graphically intense and i do not run on max settings.

I could think of 2 ......

80 is still better than 60
3D

thats another question.
If the video card cant handle doing 120hz in a game, what affect does that have visually?

Will i see tearing or flickering normally?

You're right. Didn't even think about that.

It won't make tearing or flickering worse, I can say that.

Ok, well my biggest fear is purchasing this monitor and have games run worse.
Im thinking i will buy it and with the setting i run in graphic intense games like CSGO i think ill be fine. As i run a low settings like many of hte pros do.

In the future i plan to upgrade my video card but dont have the money to do that and monitor at the same time.

Thanks for the insight.

CSGO is not demanding at all. Even with just a 560, I think you will be able to get over 60 frames easily. The higher frames really come in handy in fast paced multiplayer shooters, you'll love it.
