Can a 60hz monitor do 60fps?

Or am I better off with 30 fps gaming?

The hertz is a measure of frequency, e.g. oscillations per second. Therefore a 60 Hz monitor is capable of displaying up to 60 frames per second.

Thanks Shub I really didn't know. Although I tried running Sleeping Dogs at 60hz but it was really laggy.

for future reference, hz is pretty much fps

so if someone is talking about a 120hz monitor, it's a monitor that can display up to 120 frames per second

Yup.

Ok thanks I appreciate the info.

Just because your monitor can do 60fps doesn't mean your PC can. Refreshrate is independent from how quick your machine can push out frames, which is largely dependent on the software you're running.

Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit Processor Intel Core i7-3770k CPU@ 3.50GHZ (8CPUs) ~ 3.5GHZ Memory 8192mb Ram DirectX 11 AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series Actually its Radeon 7950 HD AMD Radeon graphic processor 0x679A I hope that this is enough info.

Yeah that's good. Sleeping Dogs ought to run fine on that. I'm not sure of the rough frame rate you should be getting but I played the game on a similar system with a 7970 rather than a 7950 and it was quite smooth.
