    Useless extra hertz even more then 60hz is pretty useless. Once you hit about 70-80 frames per second the human eye can no longer see any additional frames beyond that. I really can't even see a difference after about 45 fps. I'd rather spend the money on higher color gamut or higher color accuracy than more than 60hz. Just overclock a 60hz monitor to about 75hz and you are at the limit of human vision. If you claim to see the difference above that its all placebo effect.

    laststop311, some people can see the flicker past 60. 60 works for me because I can barely see the flicker. I find that it bothers me more when I go to bed at night. I still see the flickering even with my eyes closed. However, when I am working with a monitor with a higher refresh, I have less problems. So, I am going to go with meowmix44 on this one. I think I top out at about 70 to 75 though, but doubling it should be nice and smooth.
