You most likely wont get the screen tearing with vsync off. Also you could by the 3d shutter glasses kit from nvidia and play 3d games.

which Acer? 23 or 27 inch? I am in the same boat trying to decide...

There is a noticeable difference especially in fast paced or FPS... I am trying to decide on the steep price...

Looking at your specs, it should be able to push out all 120 frames in lots of the games... which will be considerably and no point in V Sync...

I am looking at the 23" one - I can get it for $200 open box at CDW. I would not want to put v-sync on correct? Because it locks it at 60fps?

no, it will be locked at 120, whichever the HZ is set to...
But will also give the chance of adding that input lag...

For a deal like that, i'd pick one up in a heartbeat...

as an avid cs 1.6 player who had a 2233rz i told myself that yes, 120hz was a requirement considering i easily tell the difference between my 60hz tn and the 120hz panel.

turns out its not. in fact ive fallen in with some of the others here who say IPS is the way to go. It really is "very" nice.

The bigger concern with gaming displays imo is input lag followed by response time. 120hz is just a nice extra, but at what cost ? many of them really have horrible colors and uniformity if you line them up next to higher quality displays.

even these 2412m's that I bought, which are considered very budget IPS compared to whats out there really are noticeably nicer.

just my two cents.. i honestly love both, im just not as serious about the gaming as I used to be.

I would say, wait for a while longer until 120Hz displays with DECENT color reproduction for a cheaper price come out. Not really worth it right now tbh. You sure you want to pay a minimum of 100dollar premium for extra smoothness but with worse colours?

but if you can get the 200 dollar open box, go for it. Probably the cheapest you can get a 120Hz for a long long time.
