Get a job, budget your money, prioritize expenses, buy 120Hz LCD monitor, enjoy your money and new screen.

Yep, that's about it. Few of us, IMO, really have "massive disposable income" and those that do are a bit more conservative about it. For the rest of us (including triSLI GTX580 monsters), it's just about saving up money properly

The eye can only see at about 30fps (when calm) - 90fps (when you adrenaline is pumping), so I wouldn't think so. I have my Ips monitor and I think it creams any non-ips monitor (which 120hz isn't an ips monitor). I haven't tried 120hz, so...

I hate to keep dragging this on so I won't; but I will say that you are completely misguided if you believe or take as truth anything that you have read that says human eyes are only capable of seeing 'x' amount of FPS.

It's not true, it's not even how the eye works, and it sucks when people bring it up because the misinformation gets spread farther and farther down the line.

I don't know how well this applies to OP's question regarding gaming; as I haven't played a PC game in years. I bought a 60" Aquos a year ago, 120Hz model. A few months ago I had to return it under warranty due to a malfunction. Lucky for me, that model was discontinued, so I got a free upgrade to a newer model 240Hz 60" both models are LCD, so I think this would work the same on for PC displays. I watch alot of blue-ray and IMAX hi def stuff, both via disk on the PS3 and movies stored on my server. I noticed a huge difference right away between the 120Hz and 240Hz, mainly when the image is of a very wide and long distance shot, with a large number of moving objects. The difference is amplified when the same scene is panned as opposed to stationary. (imagine BBC's Planet Earth Imax film, scene from a helicopter over a canyon following a very large flock of birds) In this application the difference was staggering. I suspect with today's fast paced and high energy games, full of subtle objects bursting and flying about, there would be some perceivable difference going to a display with a faster refresh rate. Provided your video card can support it of course.

Had mine a few weeks now, and it's made a huge difference to me personally.

I can turn off VSync more often and not get any tearing whatsoever. Just got Dead Space 2 and I can enable VSync and it locks at 120fps rather than 60, and yes, it feels ALOT smoother.

Video playback is more fluent, overall it's just so much better for gaming. I will never go back to a 60hz panel.

Any kind of movement will be smoother. Not just in game. You won't regret it.
I built my rig not a long while ago and the monitor is the only part of the rig I'm 100% contempt with.

Hi, first post. Wanted to share the exp` as 120hz is not widespread yet.

It depends what you're playing. It will be smoother - but whats the point if the game moves at a snails pace? (RTS, slow-moving FPS like CS) It won't make as much of a difference in those types of games, you'd be far better off buying a nice IPS panel.

For someone like myself (I duel competitively in UT) it makes a world of difference. 60hz is a slideshow in twitch-based shooters. I will never play on a 60hz panel.

So you will notice a difference. Is it worth the cost? That is up to you...

The options for 120hz panels suck IMO. I just got an AW2310, one of the best if not the best 120hz panels all around. I got it because one of my BenQ G2400WD's got a bad scratch on it. Let me tell ya the 16:9 and the smaller size does not justify the 120hz IMO. 120hz is convenient to have, the response time is good, but I personally don't have a problem with my 60hz panel. The 120hz is just a +. Like what others have said get a nice IPS panel or something. Me personally, I am still on deciding whether I should deal with the 2310 or get me a nice 16:10 24" IPS(u2410)
