Gigabyte 660 TI OC Capability 60hz or 120hz?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am looking for a new monitor which will allow me to get a use of my graphic card in gaming Gigabyte 660 ti oc 2gb. I am not sure if a single gigabyte 660 ti oc 2gb is enough to support 120hz monitor without lowering the specs and details in the gaming? or should I get a 60hz monitor?

I play COD - Black OPs, FIFA, NFS, and Max Payne type of games. I just bought Battlefield but havent had chance to get on to it. I play COD -Black Ops2 at max settings and get 60hz fps, but not sure if 120hz is worth to match up with gigabyte 660 ti oc.

I am looking at Samsung 120hz s27a750 ($400), Enzio FS2333 60hz ($400) and Samsung S27B350H 60hz ($300) at the moment. The graphic card capability will play a major role in what monitor to get. Please let me know what you think... and what should I get?

120hz refresh rate does not impact performance, resolution does. Get a BenQ XL2420T or the TX model with built in 3D receiver thumb.gif If you play with 3D mode on it will impact performance alot. (about twice the impact of the games you play)

I am not an expert and I have been looking for a monitor for two weeks. Can a single gigabyte 660 ti oc 2gb card produce frame rates enough and worth to buy a 120hz monitor?

I want to buy a monitor with nice colours and sharp images. I liked XL2411T as it puts very clear and sharp pictures but colours arent the best. That's why I am looking for samsung S27A750D in 120hz class and Eizo FS2333 in 60hz. Samsung is an older tech and I can't use 3D due to my graphic card and it fails.

Any suggestion of a monitor that will allow me to get a clear & sharp images with nice colours from Gigabyte 660 TI OC 2gb?

My concerns are as follows below;

- My graphic card is a single gigabye 660 TI OC 2gb. What will be my fps rate without lowering the gaming details and picture quality in the games similar to COD - Black Ops 2, Max Payne, Alan Wake and recent NFS racing games if I go for 120hz. If my refresh rate will be around 70-80, then i will not go for 120hz monitor as it will not worth to give up on 60hz IPS with decent colours. If I still get 80-90fps, still the images will not be sharp like 120fps @ 120hz.

- At the moment I get 60 fps in COD in 720p. If I get a 1440p monitor, will my graphic card still produce 60fps on the screen ( for an eg on P246Q)?

- I really want to get nice and clear picture. As long as the images on the screen don't get mixed up and messy. I watched a video of gw2760hs on youtube, and colours are amazing but the images are not clear at all. I dont want only colours on my screen without clear images. It just looks like a rainbow. I am putting the link for the monitor below.

- So what would be the best matching monitor to gigabyte 660ti oc?

Currently I am using my wifes monitor. It is a Samsung 2253LW 2ms GTG / 5ms BTW. It is a 60hz monitor. It is a 6 year old monitor. The clearness is quite well in COD. I just need to find a monitor as she wants her monitor back ASAP smile.gif
