Hi guys! I just received the EVGA GTX 760 SC 2gb ACX. I am so excited!
Anyway, I was just thinking: My card is not going to give 120 fps or above playing modern games at ultra in any way whatsoever. I've seen many modern monitors have 120hz and 144hz. If I decide to upgrade, without changing anything in my system, will it look really bad to have a 60fps gameplay in a 120hz-144hz monitor?
Thank you very much.
NOTE: If it'll look the same, please tell me too! To me that'll mean that it will be possible to do upgrades in far future.

the games may be capped.. some games for a pc are console games thats been converted to work on pc. so when your $2000 gaming pc runs the game it will be capped so a guy with a $50 x-box can play along with you.. this is why i dont spend on a nice ''mac daddy'' gaming pc any more

if you play new released games at ultra settings you might not get more than 60 fps.when the screen refreshes the image you will experience shuttering.just keep in mind to have adaptive vsync on.

Guys, all I truly want to know is if upgrading to a more-hz display will affect my gameplay in a negative, positive, or absolutley no way (taking into account i won´t be upgrading my system in a long time). Thanks!

more hertz is better it will have no impact on performance.
your gpu will render as much frames as possible.

Hi Tobia Gasparoni,

You should be able to get more than 60fps from that graphics card if you don't have a bottleneck somewhere else.

It's going to be better in FPS games to have a monitor with 120- or 144Hz, as you will notice the difference when you do get more than 60fps (it will look a lot better.)

For your other question, you will not notice any difference if you are running only 60fps on a bigger Hz screen. It will look exactly the same, but it might even look a bit better in some cases if the new monitor has a better contrast ratio then what you currently have.

Hope this helps,
Fred
