    I have a Mid 2011 Mac mini sitting around with AMD Radeon HD 6630M 256 MB and I would like to hook it up again to a LED 1080p TV but I don't know if I should go with the 60Hz model or pay the extra $50.00 for the 120Hz model.
    I want to hook it up with HDMI at 1920x1080 but will the Mac mini even support 120Hz over HDMI?

    Most HDTVs only accept a 60hz input. It's marketing bs unless you pay over $2000 or more for your HDTV.

    There are some reasonably priced 22" LCD computer monitors that accept 120hz input. I don't even know if macs support that. Those are targeted for gamers ( forgive the pun).

    The extra $50 on the 120 hz HDTV might make live cable sports look better but change it back to 60hz for movies, DVDs, BluRay, or from any computer.

    The HDTV haven't progressed to real 120hz yet in a reasonable price range.

    It's going to only be used as a monitor so I'll just save the $50 and buy the 60Hz.
    Thanks :D
