If you can't net more than 60 FPS in games, there is absolutely no reason to get a 120 Hz monitor.

24fps videos need 120hz to avoid frame skipping

I have a 1080p 120Hz monitor, a friend of mine has a 1440p 60Hz. 120Hz is really nice if you play a lot of FPS or fighting games, where frame rate is the absolute king. But I'd say in general a 60Hz 1440p monitor would be the better investment, as the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz is smaller than the difference between 1080p and 1440p.

If it were a choice between a 30Hz 1080p and a 60Hz 780p, that would be a different story.

You can change the scaling of the fonts/icons on the desktop. Games just look so damned good at 1440p, it was a huge improvement. Not only that, but the actual panels are high quality and look so good. Plus some 1440p can overclock to 100-120+.

they do until you play in 1440p
once you go 1440p there's no going back.

My old 20 inch CRT was 1440(Edit: Actually, I think it was 60 at 1440, with higher refresh rates unlocking at lower resolutions 800, 600 had some crazy 240FPS).
I went from that to my first LCD display which was a 19 inch 1280, 1024(60FPS).

I missed old CRT so much, it was the best catperch.

Why not both?

I grabbed one of those Korean Samsung PLS 27" 2560x1440 panels (Qnix QX2710) for about $260 on Ebay two months ago (prices are a bit higher now) and mine was able to hit 120Hz nicely, there are some caveats of course that you would expect when you order these overseas, but I did some see Amazon starting to sell them at various parts of the world. Some people might not want to risk it but I cannot stress how insane of great value it is.
