120Hz is tied to your screen's draw rate, not the sync rate of connected devices. As far as sync rates go, you get 75, 60 or 24 Hz. It is confusing, but US tv standards only allow for those two rates. Your panel may draw the fields at 120Hz, but you won't get a video product to produce a signal that fast.
