god, it gets annoying to see people spread the wrong information. I usually don't reply back..but given the amount of IPS fanbois on the forums lately...I'm going to take the time to call you out on this one...sorry for the urge.Wrong.
In fact that doesn't even make sense..you get NO
benefit after 120fps on 120hz. You get most benefit between 60 fps - 120 fps...but in reality you always get a benefit..even when you are getting less than 60 fps...just not by the same margin.
I have both IPS and 120hz so I know what I am taking about (disagree with me if you like, I won't bite)...overall a high quality 120hz is always better for gaming ...especially if the game is mid to fast pace. IPS is better for work/web/photos that's it. I also love 16:10 ratio (IPS) over 16:9 (120hz)...that's why I bought both. 16:10 was a major selling point for me...it just feels/looks better than 16:9. But believe me...in gaming...you want 120hz even if you can only push 70fps.
Samsung 700D/750D is my favorite 120hz monitor - amazing colors/clearity (glossy ftw)..i would even say it's comparable to IPS to the untrained eye (IPS has much better viewing angles though). However, IPS monitors feel like they are made with better quality overall..less QA issues..but the benefits of 120hz is undeniable in gaming.
Some people say they don't notice a difference between IPS and 120hz in gaming...if so, ok fine. But I truly believe most people would see a significant difference - if they gamed with each side by side.IPS (HP zr24w, 1200p) & 120hz (Samsung 23A750D, 1080p) in Dual Monitors Setup: http://www.overclock.net/t/1222585/ips-hp-zr24w-1200p-120hz-samsung-23a750d-1080p-in-dual-monitors-setup-picturesGaming:

IPS > 120hz TN > 60hz TN
My favorite IPS is Dell U2412M..or one of the Korean monitors as long as there are no QA issues, and you can support the extra pixels with enough graphical power (highend SLI/Crossfire).
My favorite 120hz is Samsung 700D/750D (glossy) and BenQ 2420 (matted).Edited by malikq86 - 5/30/12 at 3:25pm
