This is probably not the answer you are looking for but I have a bad feeling about this thread already based on its premise.

If you really want to know which one you prefer, then go to a PC store and look at both options. Look at any 1440p monitor and look at a 120+Hz monitor, then you can see which one you prefer.

120Hz tend to be the popular choice if you're only looking into gaming, however, saying that; I still prefer 1440p monitors on my part.

Honestly it really depends on games. Some games like RPGs and MMOs a lot of time will benefit more from screen real estate and color accuracy. FPS is a no brainer and you need all the speed and reaction time you can get. I would say for browsing and desktop use 1440p is good for a crap ton of room and clarity but on the same token 120hz can give you great scrolling response and fluidity on movement.

I agree with the previous poster that you should see both of them in action. Also fit the monitor to your preferences. There are ways of getting both these options but it is a korean alternative that does involve risk(i would read all through the catleap and Qnix/xstar threads before considering the option, even though i have one and recommend it greatly).
