im playing on a samsung 39 inch LED TV and the picture looks fine and everything but when it gets to cutscenes and actual gameplay well lets just say I seen better. so I was thinking maybe its the amount of hertz I am running. my tv is running at 120 hz so I was thinking about upping the hertz. will that give me better quality. the next tv I plan to buy will be a 51 inch plasma at 600 hz

Nah, it's fine.

I play with a TV I stole last time I visited the NASA.

600hz? Why on earth would you need that high a refresh rate?

You obviously don't understand TVs and/or video games.

You'll only notice (and only barely) the refresh rate when watching fast-moving images, like live sports. It doesn't affect the overall crispness of the image at all.

Every video game this generation has their native resolution listed on the back of the box (either 720 or 1080, for example). They cannot be displayed higher than their native resolution, no matter how high your TV specs are.

Are you using an HDMI cable or normal component cables?

because it's upscaling, ME3 on consoles is not going to display 1080p natively.

I think the problem is the refresh rate. I need at least 240 hz for best quality

You're fine even with 60. Go look in wikipedia.
