As I understand it, if you connect an LCD display to a Windows computer, the computer will output a 60hz signal to that display.
Many LCDs have very quick response times, even some in the 2ms range, and some even have 120hz video processing for film sources, but when connected to the computer, the monitors refresh rate will always be 60hz.
My question is: Does that mean the computer will only send out 60 frames a second? Would a 2ms response time specifically made for high-speed gaming be rendered pointless because the computers output is always 60hz?
(I understand the Refresh Rates don't really apply to LCDs, but why does the setting appear, and what does that 60hz setting affect?)
