This is a dumb question and you don't deserve an answer.


This x100000

Although if you wanna get technical you would notice a difference because the two panels themselves are different. One could display a better image quality but none of that has anything to do with refresh rate...

I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything at the time I read the TC's comment.

Are you bored or something?

I can't game at 60hz anymore since I have been gaming at 1440p 120hz for so long...

i see 60hz and it makes me wanna throw up how bad it is.

I don't know if this is true for anyone else but on my 120hz monitor 60hz looks jittery......even 60fps looks alittle off....but when I run it to my plasma TV 60fps looks buttery smooth.

That's why I'm not getting a new screen for a LONG time.

Games will push your FPS forever. Is it even possible to play the most demanding game at 120fps without dropping down the settings? Is it worth playing 120fps on medium or low settings on some games?

Eventually with newer games and higher graphical capabilities, games will run slower. It's way too much upkeep to keep your games running 120fps. You're going to find some that run at 80, 60, 50, whatever. If 120 is the standard for you, you're going to have a headache trying to play everything at 120fps.

I wonder if I should start capping myself at 30fps just so I can get used to it. With the new consoles not keeping a 60fps standard, I'll throw up if I play one, so I might as well just get used to 30.

I think it more depends on the game you're playing. Like Dragon Age Origins...BFD if it's in 30FPS. Although, I do agree with most PC master racists that 60FPS should be the standard.

Or in rare cases of lower FPS actually work for the game. Dark Souls being the best example I can think of. The nature of the game is to be slow, clunky, and plodding. Having your dude ninja flipping around at 60FPS like it's a DMC game just doesn't seem right.

But otherwise in the vast majority of cases, 60FPS or GTFO.

Go with image quality at 60hz over 120hz monitor IMO. You want the deepest possible blacks you can get, a nice natural image.

I feel the same way, except for capping at 30 fps. If you're not willing to settle for playing games at less than 120Hz, DirectX 11.1 and on 4K resolutions then you're going to have a bad time.
