Anyways, I'm looking to upgrade either my cpu, or my monitor to a 120hz monitor? which would be better?


AMD FX- 8150

I would definitely not upgrade to a 120hz monitor.

That may just be me, though.

Well I already get 120 fps on all the games that I play.. would it really be worth it to upgrade my cpu? :( 

how much is i7 3700k going to cost? It's suppose to come out in March

Upgrade to the 2600k. nuff said

You would have to buy a whole new motherboard, but its worth it. You can use the video card on the new motherboard.

I'd say not worth it. Why do you say it's worth upgrading to 2600K when he's already getting 120 fps? :lol:

If you are already getting good framerates, why upgrade?

I would only upgrade to a 120hz monitor for 3D. Upgrading to a 2600k would be a lot of $ for small improvement.

Isn't 120hz means I can see 120fps? wouldn't that be a huge upgrade over 60hz and only seeing 60fps? :o

No, but the human eye can only see 60fps so there would be no point. It would just be for the self satisfaction :na:

Its not as clear cut as your eyes can only see X frames per second and many people claim that a 120Hz monitor does look better and many say its the same. You should definately try one to try and see if you notice any difference before you buy one.
