120hz tv as a pc monitor?

i am looking at 32 inch 120hz 1080p tvs out there to use as a pc monitor. i know the image wont be as sharp as 1920 by 1200. i am just concerned about ghosting. since it is a 120hz tv will that help? or since its connected to a video card, will it only display 60hz? thanks guys!

  1. Even the 60HZ HDTV you should not have ghosting issue/problem at all.
  2. No.

    120Hz PC monitors and 120Hz HDTV work differently.

    The electronics of a 120Hz HDTVs create an interpolated frame in between every two actual frames it receives (at 60Hz) to improve smoothness and gives movies that "live" look; kinda like a talk show or news program.

    The creation of the interpolated frame will take time, thus it will increase input lag.
  3. so i should just get a 60 hz then?

    You can get a 120Hz HDTV to watch movies and videos to get that "better look", but when using it as a desktop monitor switch it to 60Hz in the options.
  5. Recently, some (not all) HDTV's now can accept true 120Hz, just exactly like a 120Hz computer monitor:

    Note that some may also only work at 120hz at lower resolutions.
