    I understand that 120fps on 120hz would look best, but unless you have 3 or 4 680's i cant keep 120fps in todays games with high/ultra settings.

    So i was thinking if i used nvidias adaptive vsync, at half refresh rate, then games would be capped at 60fps, which is a framerate i can hold with high/ultra settings, but the monitor would be operating at 120hz.

    So, is runnning 60fps at 120hz much better then 60fps at 60hz?

    Also if my gpu's are processing higher then 60fps, they run hotter, and increase gpu usage, so i wouldnt wanna run 120fps even if i could i reckon.

    120 hz is the maximum the screen will refresh at, but if it receives less, it will do less.
