720p VS 1080p on 60" TV

I would like to know if TV also has FPS when you are watching movies?

I have a Samsung 60" standard HD TV.
I also have 720p and 1080p movies and I know that 1080p slightly better than 720p but it's hard to see the difference.

MY QUESTION IS: If I watch 720p on the TV, will I get high FPS (smoothly)? and If I watch 1080p on the TV, will I get better graphic but low FPS?

THANKS!

  1. TVs dont flucuate their frames per second, they measure this is hertz, so a 120hz tv looks like everything is moving really fast, by comparison to a standard 60hz
  2. I don't know my 60" TV got how many ghz.
    Do you think my 60" has 120 ghz?

    Do you mean if I only have 60ghz, I should get the 720p rather than 1080p?
  4. No I mean the resolution of a TV/source image doesn't affect the speed you can see it at.
    a 60hz tv will look like "regular" speed and a 120hz tv will look like everything is moving faster.
    TVs "don't" have frames per second, they do, but you can't do anything to change them.
  5. If your gaming then 720p will look crap compared to 1080p on a 60" screen.
  6. Understood.

    My last question, will I get big difference from watching 1080p rather than 720p on 60" TV? Can the difference be noticed by human eye?
  7. Yes, you can tell the difference in resolution between 720p and 1080p, see this image: http://tasel.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/720p_vs_1080p.jpg
