Monitor for Movies > Games (Xbox 360/PC) - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Let's see... 120Hz basically means that you have 60 FPS more than 60Hz monitors which is wad 99% of the monitors on the market are at right now. If your GPU can play games at higher than 60FPS, or even at windows, you will experience an increase in smoothness, which is sth that some ppl here at OCN swear by.

Movies will look nice definitely. but the premium is really up to you. For IPS, Asus has a product as well IIRC.

120Hz, is something whether you think is worth it or not. So is IPS. Just type, IPS vs 120Hz in the search bar and you will see that OCN is filled with this topic.

For movies, though IPS would be favourable, as 120Hz would be useless in it. Though ,if you are sensitive to ghosting/overdrive, etc. in fast-paced games, like I am, I will get the 120Hz monitor, as it looks good with movies, and also provide unparalleled gaming smoothness.

Cheers for the replies, do you actually use the 3D? what's it like? also can you enable/disable 3D?

Well, sorry for the late reply. Actually for 3D, you will need to purchase a seperate 3D glasses IIRC. You might wanna check if they bundled it.

What this monitor uses is Nvidia Vision 2, not 1, 2.What it does is that the 3D image is bright, and Nvidia's 3D support is much better than AMD's. Seeing that you are switching to Nvidia soon, it might be sth to consider.

To switch it on and off, its just a switch.
