Default Need help deciding...

Going to be purchasing a new monitor and trying to find out which will give me more "wow" factor? Currently using a BenQ V2400W 1920x1200.

Choice 1. A 1920x1080, 120hz, 3D light boost capable display using nvidia 3D vision 2.

Choice 2. Samsung 27" PLS display, 2560x1440 resolution, 60hz.

I don't know if I'd notice the 60hz vs 120hz in games like bf3. I max all settings and force supersampling, ambient occlusion etc in games like skyrim. Highest FPS I can get on my system would be around 70-80.

HP ZR2740w has the best bang for the buck for 27 inch screens right now, not many calibration options so has to be done with software(I use software over monitor controls anyways) Also usually around $350 + cheaper then the sammy.
