Those don't exist for gaming. Don't confuse TV tech with PC tech. A 240hz TV is still a 60hz monitor when a PC is connected to it, they can't except more than 60hz of input. The highest hz monitor I've seen is 144hz. ASUS VG278HE, which is also 3D Vision 2 capable but without a built in kit. I also agree, that CPU is pretty slow and will hamper your ability to enjoy a 120hz monitor. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources 120hz Monitor OR CPU(+mobo) upgrade?
