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?

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
Is this even legal? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fxhiq93TTg

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.
