The big screen tv's use multipliers to achieve 120/240 etc. They are capped at 60hz just basically split the screen into two 60hz signals to get 120 and so on. Only computer monitors offer 120hz across one entire screen. TN panels are the only one's who can do it accurately. But again with 2560 you run into bandwidth issues way before you get to what the panel can reproduce. Back on topic, you will need two Titans to pull off an average of 100-120fps on upcoming titles in 2560. But my question would be why would you drop 1800 on gpu's but run them on a cheap Korean screen?
I think Cheap Korean Screens may be a bit of an underestimate. They are actually LG panels used in the Apple Cinema Displays. Basically they make a bunch of Panels and Apple gets the A+ panels with zero defects in the batch. Apple then puts their plastic around the monitor and charges you a ton of money. A company like catleap then gets the A grade monitors, while other companies may take the A- monitors. The rating usualy deals with stuck or dead pixels in a batch. Basically they will send the batch out and some of the monitors will be perfect, and others may have a dead pixel. Then a site will take the perfect ones, and sell them for more money than the one with a dead pixel or two. In most cases people cannot see a couple of dead pixel due to the rediculous pixel count. So the question should be not be, "Why would you get two Titans for a cheap Korean monitor", rather "why are you paying $1,200, for a $600 monitor and a ton more money for the apple logo on it".
I forgot to add the Apple Monitor only comes in 60Hz as well.Edited by guinner16 - 2/13/13 at 9:17am
