120hz vs 60hz for ESO

Post » Sun Jun 09, 2013 4:35 am

I've been debating on getting a new Monitor for ESO.

Now, I have a couple really good 60z Monitors picked out and a couple 120hz monitors picked out.

What i'd like to know is, are there any non-3d 120hz monitors? Or will ESO support 3d? I find it useless to get a Monitor with an Extra Feature, making me pay extra money for something I wont use.

Your opinions on 60hz for ESO or 120hz for ESO , or will it matter?

I've looked up that its very hard to tell the difference between 60 vs 120hz on a Monitor for gaming, but never have done the comparison myself.

the only use of 120 Hz monitors is 3D: 60 Hz for left eye + 60 Hz for right eye
so no there are NO non-3D 120 Hz monitors

same goes for TVs: 120 Hz TVs only use 120 Hz for 3D or picture in picture (fist picture 60 Hz + second picture 60 Hz)

If I'd got the understand of it all right I'd say if you can't see too much of a difference between 60fps and 120fps on respective monitors then it probably won't be worth buying a 120 hertz monitor, especially if you don't own a machine capable of producing 120 fps 99% of the time. Even then games like Skyrim start getting buggy(er) when the frame rate goes higher than 60.

Some people have an easier time with coping with a lesser frame rate than others. In my opinion it's more important to have a game running at a consistent frame rate than it would be to have one fluctuating between 50-60.

I have heard nothing about TESO supporting 3D, and I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't.
