Overclocked monitor?

So I used a guide to oc, and it says I'm at 120 hz, and everything seems the same?
A little bit darker if anything, but is there a way to test it out?

Play a game and turn off vsync.

Start playing Counter Strike and see the difference.

Move your cursor around in a circle extremely fast and see the difference, the fact that its getting darker means its working.

You'll only notice if you can play games at over 60fps

Haha well I think I notice it, but that may only be because I want to..
Is it a problem if I have a 1440 monitor, and a 1080 tv connected?

Nope, there shouldn't be any issue with that setup.

Ok, so I noticed when I started up tomb raider, it gave me the option of refresh rate..Some games don't..Is there a way to globally enable 120hz in games, or should I assume that they all are.

As long as a game doesn't have a frame cap and v-sync is turned off, then you will see as many frames per second as your refresh rate allows.

And I highly doubt you're going to actually get 120 fps in Tomb Raider but maybe you have some super powerful rig from space.
