120hz - 120fps

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Would a 120hz monitor be pointless if you're not getting a consistent 120fps?

No.
It still helps the overall image and motion appear smoother/crisper.

yes, but most consumer products dont offer true 120hz, The term is a gimmick for most tv manufactures. The decoder in the tv basically insert interpolated frames into the source to displace a smoother playback. YOU DO NOT WANT THIS FOR GAMING.

There are only a few monitors out there that offer true 120hz refresh rate

I am pretty sure the monitors listed here offer 120hz refresh rate. However it is arguable that not many will notice the benefit of 120 hz.

It is also compatible with 24hz movies, and if you get above 60 fps (but below 120 fps) then there is no tearing compared to 60hz monitors.

what type of build would I need for 100+ consistent fps in most general game titles (nothing too fancy, no Crysis or Metro2033)

i5 2500k
4gb ram (might as well go for 8gb cause it's so cheap)
Radeon 6950 or GTX 560 Ti

That's assuming you're gonna want them with eye candy turned on, which you should .

I just got that monitor a couple months ago. I absolutely love it. I can tell a huge difference between 120 and 60hz.

So any resolution that's near native to the Acer monitor I posted.
