Is it worth buying a 120Hz monitor for a 7970GHz?

The title says it all!

you might have to drop the setting from MAX, in some games to let it go 60+

but yes a 120hz monitor will allow a 7970 to REALLY stretch it's wings, especially in less demanding games like minecraft    :)

Yeah, that's true. Sometimes I forgot while I'm looking at benchmarks that everything is usually benched in Ultra settings and get a little hopeless that everything is under 60 FPS. Thanks! :D

Yes it is worth it :).
What monitor are you looking at? I like the BenQ 120hz monitors a lot.

I was looking at the best one for under $300, and found that the Asus VG248QE looked perfect!
