I feel that. The only reason I moved onto this display was that I knew about "Lightboost" and my old 1680x1050 20" monitor died. This was the cheapest replacement, as I needed a monitor for a bring-your-own-rig LAN part, haha, back in 2013. Hmm....maybe different product cycles, then.

The reason I'm not using a 120Hz display now is that there were zero 120Hz+ displays that met my criteria when I purchased my current display, and even today, finding a 32" or larger, VA or OLED, 1440p or 4k, display that can do 120Hz+ that also does not cost an absolute fortune is difficult.

On an LCD, or any other display technology that doesn't flicker, I'm more willing to sacrifice refresh rate than display size, contrast ratio, black levels, or resolution.

Ohhhh, yes, yes. I understand. My fault; I misread your post. Yeah...that "miracle" display... frown.gif I'd be much happier to spend $500 to $600 on a new monitor versus a new GPU these days. But, maybe those go hand-in-hand, haha.
