its just smoother and update so much better.

120hz is just so much better than 60hz.
wait wait wait. you have 3 120mhz and your 1 6870 plus 6850 can handle it!? i highly doubt that you can max games on the setup

That really depends on what he is playing and how his game config is set up. Anecdotaly I can say that going from 60Hz to 120Hz did provide a very noticeable difference in games. In my experience as long as you are getting 75fps or more you can feel the difference. Even on my rig, in BF3 beta I could feel a difference going from 60Hz to 120Hz. I'm running a 2500K @ 4.2 and a 6950 @ 840. YMMV, but I'm guessing his CF setup will do just fine.

Sidenote: most people are horrible pointers and clickers (fps'ers), so yeah, a switch to 120Hz won't make a damn bit of difference to the terribads out there. If you played like a sluggish fatty before, you will continue to play as a sluggish fatty.

I know you've likely figured it out, but 120Hz doesn't yet exist beyond 1080p. You can get 23" 24" & 27" @ 1080p true 120Hz. No 1200 no 1440 no 1600 nada, in a monitor. A TV might advertize 120Hz but mostly (all?) it's frame interpolation based on 60Hz.

As to selling, advertising here & other enthusiast sites, craigslist kijiji yada yada. Expect to take a ginormous financial hit.
