2: An IPS panel cannot provide true 120hz all of the time because of the slow response time. Heck, even a TN panel can't do 120hz with every single transition.

back to subject, i have a 120hz monitor, i see it make a difference if you play graphically demanding games, start up crysis, then come back and repost please, ive played it on both 60hz and 120hz, the 120 got the image up faster, and smoother, the 60hz fell behind in certain areas
I have a hard time believing you're fully able to take advantage of a 120hz monitor wth Crysis. Had you said most any other game, I would have believed you. A 5770 isn't running Crysis anywhere near maxed out (not even "Gamer" settings) at more than 60 hz.

If there was a difference in displays, it couldn't have been because one was 120hz.

Unless there's something you know that the rest of us don't, there's no reason to believe we won't be able to run the game at more than 60hz.

OT: 120hz is for sure superior, if your machine is capable of producing 80-100+ FPS in your title of choice, but I'm mighty skeptical it's going to make you a gaming god, or even that it's "necessary" for winning as some here would have you believe. Stick with the U2410.

Well to take advantage of a 120hz monitor you first need the graphic power to get 120fps constant in games...

But yeah, I have noticed that I play a lot better with a 120hz monitor in FPS games, like call of duty, even though for some reason the FPS limits me to 90 fps.

You don't need to get 120FPS to take use of 120hz monitors. Any FPS above 60 will benefit from 120hz, since the extra frames will be shown. You don't need to accomplish 120. A constant 90 would still take use of 120hz..

120Hz is a must have if you are a gamer. People upgrade their graphics cards for 10 fps increase, but with 120Hz monitor you achieve up to 60 fps increase! that's 600% better return on your investment, provided your card can output more than 60 fps, but achieving 60 - 120 fps constant on your tri - monitor setup can be a challenge in newer games.


playing COD4 at 114 fps feels soooo smoth and it gave me huge advantage, I was winning all the games without even trying, so I got bored of the game.

In MW2 they locked it at 90 fps, so it doesn't feel as smooth though.

This whole trend of developers locking the games' fps is very troubling.

Yeah I meant full 120fps but yes any framerates above 60fps is a boost with 120hz monitors

No it's not a must have, 11,000,000+ people play world of warcraft most of them don't have 120hz monitors and they don't need them.

Yeah um no, that didn't happen. It's not going to make you start winning more if you were losing a lot before.

This basically. It's only gonna make you better if you are already godly AND feel extremely limited by 60hz...
