The difference between 60FPS and 120FPS is nearly unnoticeable to the human eye.
I promise you, that's just not true.

Since when have "hardcore" gamers played at 120Hz? Nvidia 3D Vision and 120hz LCD monitors have only been commercially available since early 2010. A "hardcore" gamer would be using a CRT monitor, rather than a LCD monitor.
120Hz monitors have been around for a long time. I know you know CRTs are capable of well beyond 120Hz. I'd tell him to get a CRT, but there are just some things about them. Good ones will weigh between 10 to 20 times as much as an LCD. Color really isn't that important to us, most of us distort our color (change gamma/brightness etc) anyway so we can see better in dark environments. The only benefit would be the 0ms response time, but I don't know. I saw a chart earlier in this thread saying that the 2233RZ has a 15ms response time, but with the average human reaction time being around or maybe a little less than 250ms, that doesn't really matter either.

good
tn

pick one


To all of the people who keep saying that tn panels are better for gaming because they have better response time than their IPS counterparts, you guys need to freakin wake up. Go read an article or something. Response time means ****, it's all advertising and isnt even calculated the same way by every manufacturer. Anything under 16ms is going to be fine, input lag is what you want to be looking at anyway.

The majority of manufacturers measure response times based on GTG (grey-to-grey) transition. Sure, these an be manipulated. However, good TN monitors generally have less input lag and are quite a bit cheaper than their IPS counterparts. One such example could be the Dell U2410, which is over twice as expensive as a good 24'' Asus or Samsung TN monitor. Gamers really don't need the features, such as better color correction and viewing angles, that make these monitors so much more expensive.

I recommend TN panels for gamers because they would be better off spending their money elsewhere, such as on a better graphics card. Gamers don't need to buy an IPS panel for substantially more if they can get similar, and usually better performance from a TN panel. There is a reason IPS panels are targeted towards graphic designers, they actually need the features IPS has to offer (better color correction, better viewing angles, etc.). However, if the OP has the money to invest in an IPS monitor, I say he should go for it. I myself hope to be getting one soon.
