I’m the type of person who doesn’t "like" to play any games unless I can run them at full settings and 60 FPS. I haven’t finished/got far into games like: Crysis 1, Metro 2033, Arma II, Witcher 2 w/ Ubersampling, Shogun 2, etc. because my 2 GTX 680’s still can’t even meet the 60 FPS requirement with modest AA like 8x.
Even if you’re like me and have 2 GTX 680’s, getting another 2 of them won’t grant you a double of your FPS. Maybe 50% if you’re lucky depending on the game. Those 5 games I mentioned above, sure as hell won’t run at 120FPS 2560x1440 even with 4 overclocked GTX 680’s if I can’t get them to run at 60FPS with 2 overclocked GTX 680’s.
The question for you is:
(1) Spend thousands of dollars worth of GPUS (4) and be happy you’re playing demanding games above 60 FPS but never 120 FPS
(2) Wait until the next generation of GPU hardware for demanding games and spend the money / upgrade then and hopefully get a constant 120 FPS then
(3) Keep what you have and be happy you can at least play non-demanding games at 120 FPS but never 120 FPS for demanding ones
What's really boggling my mind is this: Even if money isn't much of a factor, should you bother spending thousands of dollars right now when you can't even reach that magical # of 120 anyway?
This thread isn’t for people who don’t care about 120hz or want to argue about its benefits or not. I just want to see what other people who are on the fence or currently own a 1440p 120hz monitor feel about this.
