It's specific to blu rays. Read up on it, it's called blu ray jitter

Also a lot of other things like YouTube video and such are 30fps..so that mean we need to use 90hz when watching YouTube?

Let me start off by saying that I don't know the technicalities in detail.

But technically from what I understand, playing a video at 24 fps (for example) on a monitor with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, there is a down-scaling ratio (2.5:1). On the contrast, if using a refresh rate that is a multiple of 24, for example 96, then the ratio wouldn't be a fraction (for example 4:1). Why it is important to keep a non-fractional playback to refresh rate ratio is that a fractional ratio creates aliasing and clipping. While it may not be noticeable to some, I would guess that it may be crucial to others who produce or can otherwise notice the negative effects

Yep, I run my blu discs on a projector.... if you aren't concerned about anything but desktop use and gaming, you can use any refresh rate you want, no reason not to.

Most single graphics cards aren't able to get to 96fps when maxing out a current game @1440p, let alone 120 fps.

96 Hz on Qnix seems to be an adequate compromise, for this and other reasons already mentioned like color fidelity.

The color i will agree with for sure..But since i am running two 7950 boost cards i will go up a little bit higher..Maybe 105-110..

The average user can't tell the difference between 60 hz and 120 hz so the difference from 96 hz to 120 hz is very minimal.

Yes its 1/5th more jittery with 96hz. I can tell the difference. For me since I had a 120hz TN. 96hz is annoying with this monitor. 120hz with this monitor is still slower than I'm use too, so 96hz is really noticeable. But the whole argument about watching movies is you should run 96hz on desktop for color and movies.
But for gaming you might was well push it as far as you can. If you can't get 120hz you probably can get 110hz so just use a profile for gaming that is max clocks and then use 96hz for everything else.
