The average human can see past 200 frames per second. So there goes that argument.
The reason for why movies look smooth is motion blur, which is not in games. Turn your monitor to 30hz and see the torutre.
Not to mention that I see the choppiness of movies and it looks horrible.
Anyhow, the difference is there alright. I would never play fast paced FPS games without my high hz CRT (I usually use 110hz for FPS, 170hz for quake)
Okay that's fine then, I'll hold my hands up and say I didn't have scientific proof that the human eye can only see about 60fps, that was just something I was taught at uni studying games design and that all games designers try to aim for 60fps as it is seen as very smooth and fluid. Especially on consoles, that's why most console games have to be extremely optimised and make graphical sacrifices as the designers are trying to keep a constant 60fps as much as possible for a smooth gaming experience).
The rest of my information provided is true and relevant however.
I'm guessing too some people, as De-Zant proved, 60fps (60hz) just isn't enough. However when I went from my 75hz monitor to my 60hz monitor I didn't notice any slow downs/choppiness, any less enjoyment to my gaming experience or just any difference.
So rubema just take the information me and De-Zant have provided and then decide on your preferences; whether you think you will need, benefit from and can justify the need for more than 60hz; and get the monitors you want
very nice setup Cacophony but were trying not to fill this tread up with images however we've made this thread

However I really like the look of having a 4th monitor above the centre monitor. Can you use that monitor when gaming to get a bit more of a vertical view in the center? I can't see how you could be it would be nice.
I'd probably use that 4th monitor to put my system monitoring programs on to keep an eye on my temps and overclocks while gaming Edited by Chobbit - 5/11/11 at 1:52am
