So I have a great build for a gaming computer but I need a monitor that can cope with the fps, so I need a monitor that has higher than 60hz. I don't want to spend too much on the monitor alone so I can afford to still keep my build.

If you are wondering what my build is, here it is:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.50 GHz Six-Core AM3(No OC)
CPU Cooler: Asetek 510LC 120mm Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler
Motherboard: GIGABYTE 970A-DS3P AMD 970 ATX
RAM: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3 G.SKILL Ripjaws X
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB 16X
Power Supply: 600 Watts - Corsair CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Memory: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD

The current cost is around 950$ and I don't want the cost to go over 1100$.

Best solution

The best value for a 120+hz monitor is the ASUS VG248QE. I have one myself and I definitely recommend it. Colors are a little off out of the box, but after calibration it looks fine. The price can't be beat. It is an excellent gaming monitor. 144hz, 1ms response time, 3d capable, high quality stand.

While this monitor looks great and dandy, the price tag is a bit hefty.

There are only a handfull of 120hz monitors and this is the cheapest one.

Some people buy korean monitors and overclock them them, but good luck getting it fixed if it ever has an issue. It will probably fit your budget though. QNix is one of the brands to look into.

Most 60hz+ monitors are also 1080p+, the 660 would not be enough to drive the fps to fully utilize it.

Well unless you plan on playing older games like dragon age, or cs:go i guess...

Which games you have in mind?

You don't need 120hz for Lol and D3. You can't tell a difference over 60 with games like that. You really only benefit from 120hz on games where you control the camera with the mouse - it makes everything really smooth.
