When I open my Nvidia Control Panel, I notice their are other resolutions. Their's a list of HD resolutions, with 1080p offered at a resolution as high as 1920x1080 32-Bit, but the only hertz offered are 25, 29, 50, and 59Hz. Their's no option to select 1080p 1920x1080 32-Bit at 120Hz. Is their something I need to do in order to enable 1080p at 120Hz or is the native resolution setting already displaying in 1080p, even though it's not there in the list?

I read online that you need something called an active display port adapter. I have my monitor connected to my primary graphics card via the DVI-D cable which came with my monitor. Do I need to purchase an active display port adapter in order for the option of 1080p at 120Hz to become available in the Nvidia Control Panel?

Those are TV settings and are probably under the header "SD, HD", you sure scrolling down doesn't show a PC (60,120)category?

Yes. The PC list shows all possible resolutions but doesn't show anything next to it such as 1080p, 720p, refresh rate, bit depth etc.

So I'm guessing 1080p is automatic with the native resolution set at 120Hz. I think I was worrying for nothing.

Go into the monitor's OSD, and find the "info" category, and it will tell you the resolution and frequency. Ie. 1920x1080 @ 120hz first to confirm the problem. I have seen mismatches before where the video card said one thing, and the screen another. The screen will always tell the truth.

If i'ts not at 120hz, right click on the desktop, click "Screen Resolution" > "Advanced button" > "Monitor" tab and there is a screen refresh item. It should absolutely have every usable refresh rate from 60 to 120hz too.

Don't worry too much about the nV Control panel until you get this sorted out first and see if there is actually a problem.
