Hey guys I'm looking for a 60-70 inch TV for my PC gaming room. Gaming at 120hz vs 60hz is quite a bit of difference in my opinion, I'm having trouble finding which TV's (if any at all) accept 120hz input?

Thx!

Your question should be.... what devices natively provide 120Hz output?

Probably none AFAIK (except perhaps a PC)

What do you mean by this? I game on a 120 hz monitor.. it works like you would think it works.. Doesn't make you cap gaming at 60 FPS to prevent screen tearing.. once you switch from a 60hz monitor to a 120hz monitor you'll never want to go back.. as far as gaming goes.

No device I know of outputs 120hz. 24, 30, 60 in US. 25/50 for Pal. Frame repetition/Interpolation is done by the TV.

That cheapo 50" 4k TV apparently will output at 100+hz when ran at 1080p.

Not really sure if I want it though.

60/120 Hz refresh rate has nothing to with FPS (24/30/60) per se. There's more to the equation.

Get a TV that has 120 or 240 Hz refresh and you may be happy.

EDIT:
I'll ask again.... what device that YOU know outputs 120Hz natively?

Bro most TV's that advertise a 120 or 240hz refresh rate don't accept an input higher than 60hz. They advertise this because of frame interpolation and what not.

I've had multiple TV's that claim to be 120, 240, or 600hz (plasma) that only accept a 60hz input.

I THINK the reasoning behind this is that blu-ray only goes up to 48hz or so? So no reason to have higher than 60hz input. I understand why most TV's don't accept anything higher than 60hz input I'm just asking IF there are any that you guys know of that do.

Even on TV's that claim to be 120 or 240hz when you play games at higher than 60 fps there's still excessive screen tearing going on.

Thats in Linux, it does 1080p at 120hz in Windows. A 65" version is coming in June and a 39" later in the year.

120hz in Windows sounds amazing! $1,200 is pretty cheap too. Any idea how much the 65 inch version will run?

I'm not sure why you keep asking this.. I already told you I'm looking for a TV for my PC gaming room. A GTX 680 which I have can output 120hz natively, I believe it can even go up to 240hz. Higher resolutions like 2560x1600 i believe are capped out at 60hz but im not sure about that.

Yes. The new Seiki 4K HDTV supports 1920x1080@120Hz, and 1280x720@192Hz.

Also see: HDTV Refresh Rate Overclocking HOWTO: 120 Hz from a PC to a HDTV
Success reports include the Vizio e3d420vx and the Panasonic VT50 plasma.

I've been gaming at 120fps@120Hz for the last few months, from a Geforce GTX680 outputting to my brand-new 120Hz computer monitor, Asus VG248QE, which includes an excellent stroboscopic backlight mode that makes it look like a CRT. It outperforms scanning backlights (google 'lightboost', and see see testimonials and media coverage).

Thanks,
Mark Rejhon

Because you never mentioned you were using a PC exclusively. I did make that notation in post #2. wink.gif
Good luck with your quest.
