120hz vs 60hz for gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 92
I've been using a 120HZ monitor for a few months now and there's no difference at all, saying that though I generally stick to true PC RTS games and from what I've read it only really effects FPS games.

Higher Hz is better for faster action content.

Try watching ice hockey on a 60 Hz TV and then watch the same game on a real 120 Hz TV. The 120 Hz TV will look better and smoother.

If you play or watch content that moves slower, you won't really notice a difference between 60 Hz and 120 Hz.

Can your card even handle 120 fps in shooters? Like Tf2,Bc2,Moh. If yes then you should go and try them out, huge differene.

There. You finallly got it. You finally admitted that it might have some difference. Seriously, just because you can't see it doesn't mean that nobody can. It's just like the users saying that "Hurr durr I've never had problems with ATi/nVidia drivers so neither should you hurr durr"


It has a huge difference in quake unreal and comp play in FPS games. You wouldn't do well with 60hz monitors in any of those.

The difference is HUGE. I honestly cannot even stand using 60HZ monitors on the desktop anymore because of how choppy cursor/window movement is. A big difference I noticed with my 120HZ monitor was that I could see while turning in FPS games with much more detail. On 60HZ monitors, it just seemed like I went from one viewpoint to another, with hardly anything in between.

I was skeptical at first, but I got the chance to use a friends and I bought one right away.

I was getting around 45FPS in team fortress 2 when a friend invited me to play the game for 3 days but I could have probably got more with the details lowered. There's no real difference in Fallout New Vegas though.

I am doing more than well my entire life in any of those, including CS etc

So you wanna tell me that if you get 2 good players to play versus each other, the guy with the 120hzm monitor is going to win? That is just bs to me
