    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.

    Why does it have such a strange refresh rate? How is it going to synchronise with all media then?

    The human eye can register different refresh rates and ajust. Play at 144Hz with 3 780s, then go to a 60Hz same res monitor with the same power.

    ANY time someone starts their post with "The human eye can only. . ." you know they're completely full of crap.

    Everyone is different bud. End of story, some people feel like they have to play @ 120Hz so they go buy it...

    It's not the "human eye" that is the limiting factor in various screen speed measurements. It's the brain that is the limiting factor processing the visual references sent to it. Some people's brains do a better job than others at processing the information. Let's at least get that correct before bickering about the limitations of what we can and can not see.

    laststop311, that refresh rate is important for fps
