Help, 120hz vs 60hz monitors @ 5760 x1080 resolution on gtx 580 3 sli?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to get 3 monitors for Nvidea surround vision but i have some question and i would like you advise..

Can i take advantage of the 120hz monitors At 5760x1080 or 5760x1200 resolution?

what would be the max frame rate at that resolution on a 3 way sli configuration?

honestly i'm not a fan of 3D vision just wondering if i can take advantage of 120hz over the 60hz at that resolution.

thanks in advance.

3D is a big waste of time, you should go with 3 580s in regular 2d with the three monitors in Nvidia surround. Much better experience.

Can't read the OP huh? He said that he is NOT INTERESTED IN 3D


He just wants the 120hz refresh rate advantage.



TBH: Easy to run games like COD4 and TF2 might run pretty good on that setup, but BC2 will not have a steady 120FPS. But you will still see a difference between the 2 setups.

1. You will not gain anything from 120mhz if you don't play in 3D. There are barely any 120mhz monitors at 1920X1200 anyway.

2. Max frame rates? that is totaly dependent on the game. Unless you want people to tell you 300 fps and mean in some old D9 game when you complain you don't get it in metro at full details and DX11.

I would recommend getting good quality monitors no matter their mhz in what you have in budget, instead.

There's a huge difference between 120 and 60 hz. The gameplay will be considerably smoother.

Just that OP can't really run at a smooth 120FPS with that setup. Only in older games.

No its not an advantage at all its really a disadvantage because you need double the computing power to run 120hz vs 60hz. And you are paying the 3D premium for the 120hz monitors.

Personally, if I were you I would wait until some of what was shown at CES is released as far as monitors go, but the Asus monitors are really nice for gaming.

would be crazy expensive to get 3 of these, but the bezels are nice and thin for Surround vision

This is funny, ahh no 120hz is not much smoother when compared to 60hz. Your eye will notice a slight difference, but it actually can be straining instead of pleasant. The real difference is that 120hz is needed to create the stereoscopic 3d image, which you don't want anyway.

It takes the same amount of computing power to run 1920x1080, no matter the hz. Just that getting a certain FPS number (120FPS with 120hz) takes more power than getting a lower FPS number (60FPS at 60hz).



Getting 1920x1080 to run at 120FPS takes just about as much power as 2560x1600 on 60FPS. So the OP would basically need a helluva lot of power. But we gotta remember that it doesn't need to stay at a solid 120FPS. It can drop lower of course.

You are joking with this comment right? When you play a game your computer generates what is known as Frames Per Second (FPS). To generate 60 FPS it takes x amount of computing power to generate 120 FPS it takes 2x.

If X is the amount of computing power it takes to reach 60hz then it takes twice that to reach 2x = 120hz.

Now if you insert 1 blank black frame between every real frame you can create a psuedo 120hz effect, my XBR9 can do this up to 240hz.

I got you, basically for ATI video cards Fans does not make any sense to get 120hz monitors right? since they dont have the 3d capability

any brand that you would recommend on monitors?
