For normal usage, the human vision system require a latency of 10ms - 15ms from when the an image is captured to when it's realized by our brains. So having more frames rendered per second will not make the animation look smoother. 75hz - 80hz is all we need to get the best and smoothest form of animation.
As for the monitors, if it does well in the color accuracy, contrast ratio, input lag, and pixel transition times tests, then heck, the 27" one could become my next monitor.
Your information is flat out wrong. There was an extensive thread about the potential benefits of higher refresh rates. If fighter pilots can detect differences at over 400fps I think even hour average gamer can see 120.
I'm sure someone can link the thread.
