Having used several 120hz monitors, IMO there's a MASSIVE difference in 120 vs 60 FPS.

I agree. I'm using a dual monitor set-up at the moment, using one 120hz 27' monitor and one 60hz 24' monitor (obviously don't use both for gaming, more for productivity), and even I can tell the difference by looking at the mouse pointer speed. I do agree however, that perhaps after 60fps, epsecially when you get to the 70 and 80fps range, it does get harder to tell the difference then (i.e. the difference between 75fps and 85fps is hardly noticable). However, the difference between 65fps and 55 fps on my monitor at least, is HUGE!

Yeah 120hz monitors are the most overlooked upgrades and dont know why either. Its just not mentioned much. I got mine when i had a 670 last year, but when I sold that and ran a 660 even the 660 with an ave of 70fps in bf3 was still way smoother on 120hz over 60hz. Im back on a 770 and cant really "feel" a difference between the 660 and 770 even though the 770 averages 100-120fps. The fact that both were on 120hz made all the difference.

I compare 60hz to running 20fps on a game, then switching to 120hz is like going from 20fps to 80fps. Its an exaggerated example but at least gives you a picture of the boost.

Because no 120hz monitor exists that DOES NOT use a seizure inducing slow pwm for its led backlight. Or possibly because tn panels are gross.

My Acer in my sig can overclock to 74hz, the difference from 60hz is night and day for me, i can notice it massively.

Nvidia control panel, create custom res, set it to a desired hz, if it displays with no artifacts, you are good to go.

I am super jealous of you guys. My monitors are IPS from 2006 w/ crazy high response time and nasty input lag.
