    120hz. For shooters, nothing beats the whip-fast response time and high fps. You get to see your opponent a fraction of a second before he sees you just thanks to having a faster monitor. How cool is that?

    That's what I did. :) 120hz is bliss for me, and I cannot go back to 60. Although people who switch to ips panels also say that they will not go back to TN's. I'd say its easier to go with an ips since you don't need to pump out an extra 60 fps to enjoy the better colors. Even for my system I play bf3 on all low with 2x msaa just to keep a solid 120 fps although I do get down to mid 100's on 64 player conquest matches with a lot of shit going on. Even when it drops to 100 i can notice it now and 60 almost looks like a slideshow. But I think bf3 looks fantastic even on low so the fluidity of motion is definitely worth the loss of candy. I am now spoiled and will have to have 120 fps/hz in my games.

    Well, at least we all agree that 60 Hz TN panel monitors suck :laugh:

    I am very happy with my IPS both because I play a lot more games than just shooters and because I watch movies on my monitor with my girlfriend and/or friends, so the wider view angle helps a lot :)

    OK quit posting this stuff before you cost me more money:D I read this stuff and instantly start researching and trying to figure out how to get an upper hand to even out my ineptness in gaming. I bought this 2 years ago and now I think I may need to upgrade.

    As far as I know caleb, there is no such product out yet. I'm still waiting for a <24" AMOLED, 2560x1600, 120hz, <3ms panel.....but it will be quite a while. I don't understand why everyone insists on huge 30" panels with gigantic pixel pitch that take high amounts of AA to reduce the aliasing. Hell, I was upset when I had to go from 21.5 to 23.6" just to get 120hz but it was worth it.

    Also, 120hz isn't just useful for fps games, the fluidity is noticeable on all 3d games and even on the desktop. Although, if colors are your thing, then ips is the smarter move.

    The biggest issue for me with 120hz are the games that are hardlocked to 60 frames and sometimes even 30!! Absolute eye torture for me now. The higher refresh rate is very pleasing to my eyes, I don't have eye strain like I did from my 60hz panel.

    I didn't realize if you have 2 of you the vehicle stays intact. I go around and blow myself up half the time getting it close enough. I need a Jihad buddy:roll:

    I got cheated out of 20000 for my savior medal because it crashed during that round. It only gave me the ribbons from the second round when I came back. Suckage !
    Not to mention I had enough on assault point wise in the first part of the match to unlock the last 2 rifles on assault. I'm really pissed and bummed.
    Is there any chance that will pop up later or is it just gone ?

    You'll get it once you get a couple more revives. Don't worry, if you crash, what you did in that round doesn't count, which means that all awards can still be earned.

    It gave me the savior medal, but no points and it didn't show up on that round. So all the ribbons
    I had prior to re-entry I got zero points for them. Fuck the ribbons and medal I wanted the points
    to get to my next level and unlock my last assault guns. I lost an hour and half of work and can't
    re earn my savior medal because it gave it to me, with out points of course. 20,000 points !

    Update: Got my assault rifle medal so it makes losing the points for the savior one a little easier to swallow.
    Should be able to level up and get the rifle unlocks tomorrow pretty quick.
