This monitor has a 50-75 hertz? Any idea what that means?
Also what do you think of this monitor?
Don't get that...

It basically means that if you can push a game 100+ FPS than that is what you will actually see displayed on screen.
Rather than running something at 100+ Hz and the monitor limits the frames 60 Hz/FPS
The #1 rated monitor on NewEgg, just ordered one myself.
Check this one out:
BenQs are supposed to be good, and it's 10% off right now.
No prob man, glad to help.
3rd best rated 27"
1st brand I saw that I would trust.
Think the contrast ratio on the BenQ is better, the important numbers are the 5,000 vs. 1,200 I believe, the 500000000000000000 is trickery.
The difference in 4ms vs 2ms is for anti-ghosting but that's such a close margin ya probably wouldn't even notice. (esp for a console at 1080p 60Hz)
The old LCD screen I use for my PC now is 16ms and nothing stands out too much to me.
But I also haven't experienced the 1ms my new monitor will be.
Edit: Read some reviews and choose what you think is best.
Hertz is simply a measurement of cycles per seconds. Heck it wasn't long ago it was just referred to as CPS. When people realized we would be getting into kiloCPS and megaCPS they changed the name.
So for the purposes of a video screen it refers to how many times in a second the screen cycles through a new picture. While not exactly like frames per second they do have a similar usage.
A 60 Hz monitor will refresh 60 times a second allowing a maximum visible framerate of 60. A higher Hertz monitor like a BenQ 120 Hz monitor will allow for visible framerates up to 120 increasing smoothness and preventing screen tearing at any framerate below 120.
Most screens will run around 60Hz unless noted. If you don't plan to play above 60 fps (like console games which are almost never above 60) or in 3D then the higher framerates will be wasted and you may want to go with a cheaper 60Hz IPS panel (looks better but the image changes slower) over a fast 120/144Hz TN panel (looks worse but the image changes faster).
If you plan the plan only console games the first panel you linked is pretty good as well as the other BenQ 60Hz.
My stomach hurts.
Use your keyboard!
