It has to a lot to do with what the TV is seeing from Samsungs instructions. I also listen to Leo Laporte the tech guy on sat and sundays and he has TV expert on all the time. Last weekend they were talking about this exact issue. He said the best TV out right now is Plasma Vieras that are 600hz rated, but that 600hz is a bit of a lie. It is capable up to 600hz but he said you will bnever see that because of filtering and output sources. The most you will see out of 600hz is around 120+. Cable companies also do not brodcast signals at more than 60hz right now.

The hz numbers are mostly marketing bullshit from what the guy said. His name is Scott Wilkinson
I guess its just not the same as it was with CRTs anymore. I figured it would just be as simple as the monitor having 120hz capable and turning it to 120hz on my computer. As far as I can remember VGA is better than HDMI when connecting to the TV. If I have a long enough HDMI cord at home I will test to see if I can get 120hz though.

Ive been to busy with work really to do much research and im mainly going off old facts, so I could just be behind in times.
