I am wondering if a 120hz monitor is a huge improvement over the 60? i have a great samsung LED monitor @ 60hz. 1920x1080 around 55-70FPS on my GTX280 SC. I play BF3 on Ultra and it looks great. Will the 120 reduce tear and such? or is that a graphics issue? Just trying to look for my next upgrade. i am not looking for 3dvision.
People will throw around the fps #, that it supposedly a number in which is the peak of what we can see without interruption or distraction. Personally I can easily notice the difference in 60 and 100fps, I'm not saying it's substantial, but it is prominent.
Let me ask you a question, do you remember CRTs and how you could adjust the hertz fairly high? Do you ever remember setting your hertz range 100hz or higher and notice a big difference in smoothness? Well, if you did then 120hz is definitely for you.
I've heard multiple people talking about 120hz and it wasn't until I reflected back on CRT and how much smoother they were overall I bought into it and purchased one.
All I can say is....I'll never look back at those 60hz panels =). To me, it's the biggest upgrade you can get at the moment, everything just plays so much better IMO.
Also, I forgot to mention but a lot of TVs aren't true 120hz and 240hz, they implement their own technologies to heighten their frame count and to me, it looks unnatural, more of like a speedup than anything. And when you see 120hz on a monitor, there is no blue....well very very little, but essentially it is removed.
