GTX580 benefit from 120hz monitor w/o DisplayPort?

Poll Results: Will a GTX580 and 120hz monitor eliminate screen tearing over HDMI/DVI?

 
  • 50% (2)
    Yes, with either HDMI or DVI, you can send 120hz to the monitor
  • 0% (0)
    Only with HDMI can you send the 120hz signal
  • 0% (0)
    NO! You can only use displayport for 120hz signals
  • 0% (0)
    You can use it, and you wont see screen tearing, but you will still be limited to 60hz output.

    Other?

I confused about this whole thing and I've not found a definite answer so I guess I will just ask quick.

I have a reference based GTX580 which means I have 2dvi and 1HDMI output.

I want to pick up a 120hz monitor NOT FOR 3D, but rather to destroy visible screen tearing which has plagued me for years.

From what I've read, DVI cannot send higher than 60hz @ 1920*1080

Can I use and benefit from a 120hz monitor with my GTX580 via either HDMI or DVI?


My ultimate goal here is to eliminate visible screen tearing and I abhor vsync.


On a side not, if anybody wants to suggest a quality 24-27" 120hz monitor for me, that'd be great.
Budget under $700.

You need to use a Dual Link DVI port to run in 120hz. I'm unsure if the display port will run at 120hz.

BenQ's new 120Hz is also good from what I've heard.

I plan on buying this one pretty soon. I just can't get used to the stand on the 950D

Dual Link DVI it is.
Now to start shopping.

Seeing as I will be using this for a couple years. I'd like VESA mounts and an adjustable stand.
I despise cheap fixed stands. My cheapo 19" LCD from 2004 has an adjustable (tilt, height, and swivel) stand.

1920x1200 for single dvi, 2560x1600 for dual link dvi

Fyi

1920x1080 is not the max resolution for single.

Yes, but what about at 120hz?
I keep seeing people saying single DVI cannot handle 1080@120hz

No one is saying that 1920x1080p is the max resolution for single link DVI. We are saying that to run 120hz at 1920x1080 requires a Dual Link DVI cable though.

You need a dual link DVI to handle 1080p @ 120Hz. Single DVI does not have enough bandwidth for it. I wouldn't worry too much about the cable either as most 120HZ monitors come with a dual link DVI Cable! thumb.gif

Also I love that carbon fiber look on your Mamba, not a fan of the Mamba, but the carbon fiber look is top-notch!

120Hz monitors come with DVI-D Cables. Plug it into your 580's DVI and it will do 1080 @ 120Hz.
