Added! I have a word document copy for other people with my sources listed. I just copy and pasted them.

And yes, I am aware that MOST of my sources are from wikipedia.

I sure do doubt it

The real 120Hz panels are sold as computer LCDs, and they use a dual-DVI connection (60Hz each one).

here's a couple of nice helpful links regarding this tech.

the 2nd one is a PDF (you can open it with IE), but it's a pretty elaborate breakdown.

So would a 120 Hz monitor eliminate screen tearing without the need for v sync?

No, but you would vsync at 120fps rather than 60fps.

I'm just thinking about something: you are gaming, vsync on, but your graphic card can't give you a steady 60 fps. Let's say you hit 50 fps (average) when vsync is off. With a 60Hz screen you will actually see 30fps but with 120 Hz, you can display 40fps (120/3).
Am I right ?

[EDIT] It seems like there would be no tearing for 50fps @120hz, so v-sync is irrelevant in my case.

If the program can set the vsync to maintain a static 40fps, then yes that would work with a 120hz set and would eliminate screen tearing. I'm not too up on my vsync knowledge, or how flexible it is, but if programs could set the vsync to frequencies a monitor can accept as a multiple of it's refresh rate, 120hz sets would indeed be more versatile.
