Quick Question About Monitors.

I've been looking for a 120Hz monitor, and when I search "120Hz 23inch monitor" and look at some of them they all say 100 - 240 VAC, 50/60Hz in the specs.
Does 100 - 240 VAC mean that the monitor can get 100 to 240FPS in games or does 50/60Hz mean it only allows a max of 60FPS in games.
I currently have a 60Hz 23inch monitor that only allows 60FPS in games so I'm confused. Even if it says 120Hz in the title for the monitor it still says "100 - 240 VAC, 50/60Hz" in the specs for it.
Comment, suggestions, and answers are greatly appreciated.
Thank you! :)

  1. 100 - 240 VAC is Volts AC, the electricity coming from the wall.
  2. You are confusing the voltage capability of the monitor(100-240VAC) with the monitor refresh rate.
    Monitor refresh rate is often 60(screen refreshes per second)
  3. Best answer
    VAC means volts alternating currents and has nothing to do with the refresh rate of the monitor.
    240v/50hz is common in some parts of Asia, Europe has 230v/50hz, not sure about US. Those numbers simply tell you that you can use the monitor (or any electrical appliance like a lamp) on 120v, 230v and 240v (those are pretty much the standard)

    A monitor with 120hz refresh rate can show 120fps
