As for BF3 I can feel a clear difference between 60Hz and 120Hz even when my fps isn't hitting over 100. I have both types of monitors. The game is a lot more responsive at 120Hz.
What does any of this have to do with the OP?
No just responsiveness but also input lag is eliminated. The reason in part that it feels more responsive is that with a 60hz monitor, any frames above 60 FPS are dropped. Enabling VSYNC can help with this to a degree.
Anyone that criticizes using a 120hz monitor in conjunction with cards capable of generating the necessary frame rates obviously have never tried one for any length of time. There are a number of owner threads here for the 120hz monitors and I don't recall anyone saying they haven't seen a difference. It always seems to be criticized by those that don't have one
Nothing is more beautiful than 1600 resolution, but no way in hell would I toss out my 1080@120Hz, she sits right next to me as a satellite.
I can't believe more people haven't discovered 120 Hz monitors especially when even moderate GPU hardware can push most titles to at least 120 frames per second.
Anybody who thinks AMD drivers are top notch or stellar, simply aren't pushing their cards hard enough or playing WoW constantly. I believe currently BF3 is geared to blow and GTAIV is un-usable on half the 7970s. Its funny, inside the owner's thread, dozens of post about x y z not working, yet outside everyone jumps to the other side of the fence to defend these drivers.
