Remember you may or may not be able to hit 120hz. Mine does ~110hz.

As far as in games, you can find out right now. Turn vsync off and look at your framerates. Don't expect to be getting 120 in new game without a serious $2k+ in video power. Titan is a beast but not to the point you get double the FPS most people need in new games.

There is a myth that a 120hz monitor at 60fps doesn't look good. Well thats not true. Even if you only get 60fps on your 120hz monitor, it will still feel way smoother than on 60hz. When i sold my 670 in december I went for a 650ti then 660 to hold me off till the 7xx series, well both of those cards averaging well below 100fps the games still played way better on the 120hz over 60hz.

That said get the best you can afford and enjoy gaming on that crazy monitor. I wish I could go for 1440p 120hz lol

edit:
When mentioning 60fps in the above statement I am referring to averaging 60fps

120hz and 60fps will look the same as 60hz and 60fps. Not better, but not worse.

Your smoothness gains were because you don't need to hit 120fps to get a difference- at 90fps on a 120hz display, you're still seeing 50% more frames then a 60hz monitor.

I agree with your statement, its that people on here seem to think if you average 60fps its a waist. Just because you average 60fps doesnt mean there are not points in the game your at 140fps or 90fps and people forget that. Its also nice that I have yet to get screen tearing on 120hz even when my average is 110+ fps on some games/maps

I don't have much problems driving 100+ fps in most games i play (css, bf3, wow, rift, etc) with a gtx titan. If i get below 100fps i tipically lower a graphics setting to get me back at 100+ fps.
Personally i prefer smoothness (100fps) gameplay over high detailed graphics.
Since you already own a titan, for me it would be a no brainer to get the OC pcb for 200$ to maximize the potential of your SE monitor smile.gif i was able to oc no problem to 120hz using this thread:

And this
