Do I need 120+hz monitor ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi to all

This is my first post in this great forum and I hope everyone give me his opinion.

I build a new rig the most use of it is for gaming & internet. For me I dont play multiplayer FPS I play just the story mode. I play football online, some of third person shooters like tomb raider and many others, I play Skyrim as well , some strategy games.

So for the type of games above do I really need 120+hz monitor ??

I am asking because I really confused between IPS and TN panels , between the beauty of colors and the smoothness.

My specs
Cpu core i7 3770k
Evga gtx 680
16 gb ram
Motherboard msi mpower
I am not thinking about sli the gpu for now

I am waiting for your opinions. Thank you

Your list of games are casual so I don't see the point. Most people buy 120Hz monitors for fast paced competitive games against other humans.

IPS would probably be the better choice for your needs.

So the 120hz is just needed when I need to compete with others in FPS multiplayer ?

Yup, it's for when shooting a fraction of a second before your opponent matters. Games like Counter Strike, Call of Duty, Quake etc.

Even for single player gaming 120Hz is amazingly smooth and fluid. It does the same thing for gaming that a SSD does for system performance. I highly recommend it.
