    hi to all, i want to ask to you all a suggestions about monitor 120z for one HD7970.
    I want play with V-sync active, if i can get like 80 fps it will stutter? i need to stay everytime at 120 fps for very smooth gameplay?

    Can you please tell me what's the best monitor for gaming? i prefer 27 inch or more!

    I see these:

    Benq XL2720T

    ASUS VG278HE

    ProLite G2773HS-GB1

    thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

    They are all good, imo.

    But I preferly like ASUS because it is well known and the monitor looks nice and I think also works great.

    So I would go for Asus, but that is just my opinion.

    It won't in most occasions but maybe it will if it gets older by time.

    Why not stay on 120 fps? Take the chance and make full use of it.

    120hz is really good.

    I'm sorry for not answering that beforehand.

    S!

    I use 120Hz ViewSonic and do not get stutter even drops below 120fps with VSync on.

    I will use an HD7970 so it's hard to maintain 120 fps in games like BF4.... so you think that 3 monitors are good?
    It's big different from 60hz pannel.

    Once you see 120hz, it's hard to go back. I spent a whole day diagnosing my computer because it was running slow but then I realised the refresh rate was at 60hz instead of 120hz.

    The only downside is that you need a much more powerful computer. Even the most expensive hardware can't give 120fps consistently. On my system most new games I can't even get 120fps solid. I get low gpu usage as well. So I'd recommend the newest graphics cards and not multiple last gen like my trifire 7970 system. Maybe wait for the 290x.

    Trifire scaling is pretty bad tbh.

    Yes, if the FPS can't keeping 120FPS, and jumping between 60-120FPS.

    Screen tearing is a subjective thing tbh, some hate it some don't even notice. You can try capping the fps that often helps.

    If the fps cap is a multiple of the max refresh rate you shouldn't have a problem. So say 80fps limit would be OK since 3x40=120. 2x40=80....

    I have 170Hz CRT and never ever have Vsync enabled. A lot of games are capped at 60-80fps though.

    btw you aren't going to "notice" 120hz it doesn't improve IQ all it allows is faster fps and more responsive mouse....good for BF4 etc I suppose.

    One thing 120hz is good for is 3D, but many prefer IQ over fps.
    If you can live with 60fps maybe the money could be better spent on a bigger higher res screen? Up to u.

    If someone proposed to do trade and tried to exchange my 120Hz for 4k, I would likely agree, sold his 4k and got 144Hz.
    Because while 4k looks nice, high fps on adequate Hz is what makes gameplay better.

    I am using RadeonPRO and DFC 120Hz, on same games DFC 119Hz usually accompanied with Triple Buffering. Have TB off in games like CS/Smite to get fastest response, but TB does not add much at 120Hz anyway.

    As far as screen goes, I have Benq XL2420T with a lot of modifications and it is acceptable screen. But out of box Benq has worst color representation and functionality because of their FW (not updateable) of those mentioned.

    I would go for 144Hz ASUS even if you do not poses hardware to push those frames there now.
    Because Benq has InstantMode/AMA to reduce Motion blur caused by pixel response, but they allow only ON/OFF which is not optimal.
    ASUS allows to pick from several intensity values which allows for better results.

    ok so if i take a 144 hz monitor but i can maintain only 70-80 fps with Vsync i will take stuttering?

    If you use v-sync, your real displayed frame rate will be 72fps and you get no stuttering.
    On my 120Hz screen I do not usually use v-sync and I do not get tearing at all if I limit fps to 119 with DFC in RadeonPRO.
    In some cases I get I get tearing traveling up or down with DFC set to 120 fps. (it really matters on game engine how fast it reacts on possibility to get another frame out)

    Using Triple buffering effectively eliminates it even with DFC 120fps. But adds wasted (unused) workload to GPU and few milliseconds of input lag based on type of Triple Buffering used.
    As for waster work with TB it's very small percentage, because GPU have hard time keeping 120fps anyway. If it was 60Hz screen then wasted work would be much higher.

    I play BF3/4 on a 120hz monitor @60fps and its superb.. You dont need 120fps to enjoy 120hz :D

    Have the game set to 120hz@1080p and lock the frame rate @60fps and still enjoy the fast refresh rate...

    You still notice a massive difference over 60hz @60fps vs 120hz @60fps panel is refreshing twice the speed = smoother gameplay.
    Having the 120fps is superb dont get me wrong but the difference from 60fps to 120fps is only less input lag and less motion blur.
