Help, 120hz vs 60hz monitors @ 5760 x1080 resolution on gtx 580 3 sli? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Since everyone seems to have INCREDIBLE strong opinions...i'll give you my "strong" but not so "invasive" opinion.

120Hz to 60Hz is a noticeable difference...yes, anything over 60fps "feels smooth" to the human eye (with the right technology 24fps can FEEL smooth, which is what film does [flamers can explain in more detail if they care, i don't have time for that])...but! that doesn't mean you won't notice more frames past 60...go watch any T.V. at a best buy with 60Hz next to 120Hz, they both feel smooth but the 120Hz does have less motion blur. That is the benefit from 120Hz to 60Hz. What does that mean for you in video games? Saying you're play Cod:BO or BFBC2 and you hear gunfire to your left or right (assuming you have "motion blur" off in those games [i don't know if the games have motion blur]) you pan your mouse to the side and in the 120hz screen the "screen enduced motion blur" that ANY lcd will have will be much less noticeable. 1/2 as noticeable in fact (assuming it's a native 120Hz monitor and not backlight scanning 120Hz)

(I'm assuming you stay with just SLI 580 and not Tri-SLI) On the topic of will you notice it on 2D surround. On 95% of current games your rig will be able to push OVER 60FPS even at 5760x1920 (with bezel comp. you'll be around ~6050x1920) ANYTHING OVER 60 FPS WILL BE BENEFICIAL. You'll notice the biggest gain if you're at the full 120Hz cap but anything over 60FPS will be a gain in comparison to a 60Hz monitor. Obviously in games like Metro2033 and Crysis you won't be pushing over 60fps (from what I've understood hearing others benchmarks) but other games ABSOLUTELY! Cod:BO, being an XBox 360 port, is more CPU bound then GPU so you probs won't push 120fps on all three displays but with the exception of the few MAJOR power hungry games. (I have Crossfire 5870's and run Eyefinity and I'll be the first to admit your 580's would destroy my 5870's) I easily get 60fps on 5760x1920 in most games like Batman:AA or Dragon Age or any Source engine game. With Just Cause 2 I have to go down a resolution but your Nvidia's push Just Cause 2 WAY better.

TO SUM UP!

120Hz monitors would be beneficial over 60Hz monitors if you are running 5760x1080 games with SLI 580's.

120Hz monitors would be VERY noticeable over 60Hz monitors if you are running 5760x1080 games with Tri-SLI 580's.

5760x1080*


Not 5760x1920. That resolution would require 3x 1920x1920 displays, which would probably look akward.
