120Hz removes screen tearing, a 60Hz screen cannot display the frames fast enough if your pushing 60FPS+
Even though a Catleap Extreme is a 120Hz IPS, it's actually the IPS tech that is the problem. Since it is then IPS that cannot keep up. Which results in a blur in fast games...
IPS screens can actually update and display pixel faster than any comparable TN panel that isn't overdriven to ****. Combined with the new IPS such as the Overlord Tempest with no OSD, and scaler, which means very little or non existant input lag. Compare that to the BenQ, or Asus and it's very similar. But it's only because TN panels can be significantly overdriven successfully ( not really ) compared to S-IPS or H-IPS people assume TN is "faster"
In reality, unless you're a competitive gamer, you can't really notice the different between a GOOD 1440P 60Hz vs a GOOD TN 60Hz. The Samsung 60Hz 2MS TN is nearly the same as the HP ZR2740W that I own, in fact I believe the ZR2740W is actually faster than the TN @ 66Hz or Even 70Hz due to not needing to overdrive it as hard.
Sorry for Off Topic, but this debate about the monitors the last few pages have gotten me annoyed.
That said, I'm seriously considering one, if not two GTX Titans to upgrade my current system, however, for me, when I upgrade major components like these I generally build a new system around it, so I'm not sure if I should grab 2-3 Titans and keep them on my shelve until I have the budget for a new 3930K system, as when I build I like everything to be "fresh". In that case, I might just go with one Titan on the current rig, and get 2-3 GTX780s and go IVY-E
