Next step, upgrade GPU or 120hz? - Page 2

one big misconception is 120hz =120 fps, when the fact is hz dose not care how much fps you have it will still constantly update/refresh the screen panel 120 times in a second. shure the eye might not see past 60 fps( i would argue the different) but it will see passt 60 hz. 60 fps at 120hz is still greater and smoother than 60 fps at 60hz (without vsync). with vsync 60fps@60hz = 60fps@120hz <120fps@120hz

Your eyes cannot tell the difference between 50htz and anything above. I'm using a cheap 22" Westinghouse HDTV (@60htz) as my main display, and it performs just as well as my friend's 120htz . Save your money for a new GPU

In regards to 60hz vs 120 hz there is a BIG difference. Ask anyone that owns a 120 hz monitor, and they will tell you they could tell the difference as soon as the desktop loaded. Mouse cursor movements are smoother, scrolling pages on the Internet look better, and don't even get me started on gameplay: it's simply amazing.
Yep.

The human eye can very easily distinguish up to and well over 120 hz refresh rates, and many (most) people can do so. Your eye isn't a digital camera, there is no refresh rate limit. Your brain processes anything more than 15 ish fps into smooth motion (forget the name of the effect) but you sure as hell can tell the difference between 60 fps and vsync, and 120 fps vsync (on a 120hz screen) side by side.

Hell, even if it isn't running at anything more than 60 fps, the 120hz monitor looks better.

This is not true. I have a 120hz multi-monitor setup, and a Dell U3011.

The difference between 60hz and 120hz is apparent OP. Even in basic desktop usage you can feel the difference. From my experience you'd need to get in the 90+ fps range before you can tell the difference between 60hz and a 120hz panel. In my opinion I prefer the colors and size of my IPS panel versus my multi-monitor 120hz setup.

Keep in mind that you will need a lot of GPU punch to take full advantage of a 120hz monitor in gaming with settings at high or max. With that said I'd go for a 120hz panel first. The difference will appreciated even in your daily usage. After you get the monitor get you a nice GPU.

120Hz is amazing. I just reformatted all my drives and forgot to turn on 120HZ and I seriously thought I somehow damaged something in my PC because everything felt so laggy! Just moving your cursor on the desktop is amazing, and moving windows. But I find that the true beauty of 120hz comes when you want to slay fools in online FPS games. Even though I have a TITAN, if I play BF3 online I always turn my gfx to low just to get synced to 120HZ and everything is super smooth.

I would not spend money on a 120Hz monitor when you only have a 6870. To really get your moneys worth from a 120Hz panel you need a graphics card that can keep the min FPS above 60 and average close to 120 in the games you play. A new faster GPU is going to do much more to improve your gaming experience.

I'll consider a 1440p screen when I can get a 120Hz Nvidia 3DVision2 one.

The debate about 1440p/1600p @60Hz VS 1080p 144Hz/120Hz can ONLY be defined by a user. No one can pick for you (it's just like picking a mech keyboard switch). My buddy has a 1600p monitor and i have played on it before. To me, it was really slow and laggy; Although the graphics quality increased vastly, it was not still compared to my 120Hz 1080p monitor IMO. I would trade high resolution for fluid gameplay anytime anyday, and someone else can say the exact opposite wink.gif
