The first post has all the information. There won't be a big benefit, but I'm assuming you can probably lower your AA settings to get 120FPS. If you can do this, you will see things twice as quickly as most people would (assuming they have 60Hz monitors), so you can react quicker. There isn't a big difference between 90Hz or 120Hz though, but you'll want to set your monitor in multiples of 12 (such as 96Hz or 120Hz) so that the signal you are getting is more uniform with the signal clock rate.
thanks for telling me about multiples of 12 I did not know that . but I'm playing call of duty ghosts and the max fps it can display is 90 fps . will I still see a improvement if I overclock it to 96 fps from 90 fps ?

As far as I know, there shouldn't be any improvement, but you can try it out yourself and see if you notice any difference.

I did overclock it to 96hz the most fps I am getting playing call of duty ghosts is 90fps because that's the max fps that game can display but in black ops 2 and in battlefield 4 I am getting 96fps . and I don't notice any color change ether

I know exactly what you mean by the colors not looking the same when using Evga Precision. They look washed out and blacks are not as dark. I now use the Nvidia CC to make a custom resolution and set the refresh rate to 100Hz and the colors look exactly the same as without it. I couldn't be happier. I'm using an HDTV via HDMI and now I can play games like a bioshock Infinite, and many others, at 100FPs with Vsync on. Beautiful! I did use the precision method for a few months and it didn't mess up my Tv at all. I'm pretty sure that as long as it is successful when you test it, it should be fine. If it doesn't work out and gives you a black screen, you can just wait until the timer runs out and it'll go back to before you tested.
