120hz vs 60hz. - Page 4

send it to me, dont scrap it.

I said medium end. Like those that can barely run 1280x1024 at acceptable refresh rates. Not high end stuff like my CRT triplet.

Well, wait a minute... What do you gather from this?

Note though, video card solutions that are recommended for 60Hz 2560x1600, will not perform as well at 1920x1080 @120hz due to the amount of information that needs to be processed. In other words, it’s more taxing on a GPU to display 1920x1080 @120hz than 2560x1600 at 60hz. You will need one heck of a powerful GPU solution to see all the benefits of 1920x1080 @120hz. Beyond this resolution, at this high a refresh rate, dual link DVI will no longer have enough bandwidth to broadcast a signal to a monitor. As this point we'll have to move to a more advanced cable method like Display port (seen on a lot of the new HD 5xxx series cards).
Taken directly from the sticky in this forum that I found through Google, LOL!

heh, i go through CRT's like XEB breaks videocards.

im down to 2 P792's. i like to run these guys way beyond their EDID maximums.

like these buggers at 144hz at 1024x768 1152x864.

ive done it with a few high ends, but it got pricey.

Mine only cost me 60€ combined.

I can run 1024x768 at 170hz. No need to run above EDID here.

Anyone who says gaming on a 120hz isn't worth the money has never gamed on a 120hz monitor. BC2 on this 120hz monitor is amazing as was the BF3 Alpha

I love my 120 hz monitor, I'd say get one if your GPU can handle 120+ fps on the games you play. Also: it makes no difference on consoles (if you happen play one on your monitor).

It does give quite the benefit going from a 60 hz monitor to a 120 hz monitor in games like counter-strike.

That has nothing to do with the monitors refresh rate. It's just saying that for a game to run at a constant 120fps at 1920x1080 it's more taxing on the GPU than the other resolution at a constant 60fps.

all tvs would look better if the programming was displayed at 30 or 60FPS because 24 fps does not divide into 60hz equally, so it appears to stutter. this is corrected when moving to 120hz because 24 does divide into 120 equally (5 times to be exact). to the point, 120hz is better

mine were $go pick them up. my GD70 E70... that was another story, although still not nearly 20 pound.

edit: never had a GD70.

edit 2: think mine can do 162~ without edid at 1024x768.

edit 3: curious to what you can do without edid yet?
