  1. Best answer
    TV's can NOT accept a 120Hz input signal; they take a 60Hz signal, look at two frames, and create a filler frame in-between to make 120 seperate frames. Also has the downside of adding a LOT of display lag to the picture, because of all the extra processing done by the TV.

  3. Thanks, I read that it takes a dual link dvi card to handle 120hz. if this is so than do you connect 2 dvi cables from the monitor to both dvi connections on the card or is there a single connection to dual connection dvi cable that you use?
