Default Samsung PX2370 (60hz) VS Acer GD245HQ (120hz)

I bought a Samsung PX2370 the other day (60hz) LED monitor and its great BUT im a gamer and would appreciate the extra frames in the Acer GD245HQ (120hz) which supports 3d (not that ill be using it).

i can still return the Samsung, i bought it retail for $398.

So basically, is it worth the 120hz LCD acer instead if the 60hz LED Samsung.
Is there a BIGGER difference in LED and LCD or 60hz and 120hz?! THANKS!

Intel i7 950
GTX 580
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have the Asus VG236H, and I'd say I enjoy the aspect of 120Hz gaming more than nVidia 3D Vision.

120Hz gaming is definitely sweet.

I have the Acer and I like it a lot. The 120hz definitely makes for smooth game play, and even without 3d there is a noticeable difference in regular gaming. It also has some of the fastest pixel response, faster than the Samsung 2233rz so it is definitely a "gamers" screen.

Additionally most recent video cards are more than capable at running at 1920x1080 (1080p) at a high frame rate on most games even with V-Sync on.

I'd say the Acer is definitely the better screen, and it doesn't use much more power even though it uses CCFL backlighting. It also has pretty decent color accuracy for a TN screen
