You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Probably because you adjusted to things being higher than 60hz. Even if you don't most games at 120fps your mouse movement on the desktop still is.

Theoretically, 60 FPS at 120 Hz should look exactly like 60 FPS at 60 Hz.

And what do you mean by choppy? It's a vague term. Microstutter? Screen tearing? Input lag?

Probably because it is not constant
Do you have your fps jumping up and down often and not locked to 60fps?

No jumping of frames I thought it might be b/c of SLI so I went in settings and disabled one card.....still there. 60fps looks alot smoother on my expensive plasma is what I'm saying then my Asus 120hz LCD, if it was a stuttering issue wouldn't I see it on my TV?

Set the monitor to 60hz, see how that looks.

The expensive plasma has motion blur that makes 60 FPS look smoother. It also has input lag that makes it unsuitable for fast response in action-oriented games. So it's not the 120Hz that makes a difference, it's the fact that it's a low response time computer monitor.

My old 50" HDTV was great for PC gaming with a controller. 1080p at 30 or 60 FPS looked damn good, but the response time was not very good with a mouse and my aim is noticeably better in first-person games on a computer monitor.
