Help! Need display advice for gaming.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I ordered my first gaming PC a couple days ago. My initial thought was hooking it up to my 32inch LG 1080p TV. However, that TV is 60hz. I heard from a couple people that my gaming picture will be suffering. Should I sell it and save for something 120hz? Will I really be able to tell that much of a difference? If so, could someone recommend some 27-32inch monitors that aren't bank breaking? I'll post my build below.

i don't believe that it is worth the upgrade, there is a difference.

Ok so there's a difference but not enough of one to justify an upgrade?

i would recommend you see how you like playing on your tv, should be fine.
if you have the money get it, does any of your friends have a 120htz one?, if so try using it and see if it is worth it for you.
