Help! Gaming monitor advice. 1080 vs 1200 and 60hz vs 120hz

December 25, 2012 9:05:37 AM

Hi and Merry Christmas to all,

I need some help please with a monitor for my new build. I've just ordered the parts for my build but I can't decide what monitor would be best. I've been looking at 24" to 27" screens, 1920x1080 and 1920x1200, 60hz and 120hz! But it's all very confusing :??: 
My PC would be used for gaming (Skyrim, AC3, Far Cry3, etc) and lots of HD movie watching. My budget is £200-£250 max.
I've only gamed on console in recent years using a 50" 1080p LCD so I'm guessing any monitor is going to look small but very very clear and sharp.
So is 1080 or 1200 better for gaming and movies, is 1080 too low for a monitor above 24", and is a 120hz monitor worth it with my rig???

My PC:
3570k
ASRock Extreme6
8GB RAM
Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X 1Ghz

I really need some help with this please I'm so lost now :-\
Thanks very much and Ho Ho Ho =)
