Yes

Its an IPS panel so the viewing angle and color won't be as mind-blowing as the typical high end TV (which usually isnt IPS) but that's the trade-off for the fast response time needed for gaming... I use this IPS panel for gaming

If anybody is buying a monitor now for gaming it would be kind of dumb not to get at least a 120Hz panel.

I disagree. Buying a monitor with a higher refresh rate for console gaming would do no good at all.

He's not buying for console gaming, it's for PC gaming. You can still take advantage of 120Hz even in most console ports.

What was the refresh rate on that Asus I posted?
When you sent me that link I thought it was perfect until I realized it was 24".
I don't think it's worth getting a 24", a 27" is what I believe I'm set on getting now.
The BenQ looks like to be the best option for the moment however I feel like I can get a 40"+ Tv for that price.
I'll goto bestbu, walmart or micro center to see how the 27" looks up close.
I want to get a good gaming experience. It may give me a reason to start playing more pc games.

I sit about 4-5 ft away from my 48 inch tv/monitor and it works good
I would not want to sit much closer, 1 foot closer would be too much for my liking

My 40" Samsung is my main monitor. To me 120Hz and the full FOV immersion is worth dealing with pixels that I can't see when gaming.

But you got lucky getting your tv to 120.
I think i'm getting confused about the whole 120 thing with tvs now.
The one I suggested earlier, the Philips, would that get 120 while gaming?

It's 120Hz native due to the OC but, it is noticeably snappier than my NEC even at 60.

By 120Hz, I mean set it to 120 in Windows, and be selectable in games. 120Hz real refresh rate. Not the upscale BS on most TVs, and yes I got real lucky.

Will the TV I posted have real 120?
If I'm going to spend around 4-500 I'd rather just get a tv.
I didn't want to spend over $350 on a display for gaming
