The TV I have in my living room is 120 Hz, but it is of a size that at 60 Hz you'd notice a lower picture quality. I'm not certain if I'll notice a big difference between 60 Hz and 120 Hz on a 32".
I think the 120Hz option is mostly for 3D applications. Since the TV programming is 60Hz, it won't matter for that, it will be 60Hz anyway. Also, your video card in the computer would have to be capable of delivering 120Hz. That's not the same as 120fps - if the output of your video card is set to, for example, [email protected]
, you will only get 60 fps sent to the monitor regardless of how many "frames" the card renders.
But, then again, 120Hz TVs cost more, so a salesman would recommend them :D
(Just as an aside, I wouldn't buy a 120Hz TV/monitor for 3D - 3D seems to be going nowhere.)
I'm a bit unsure of what your intentions are. Certainly you can use your Smart TV and your computer at the same time, if the computer has it's own monitor, but without digging into the details on the TV, I would assume that, like most TVs/monitors, you can only select one input at a time. So, barring some sort of picture-in-picture setup (which would be less than ideal), you can either
surf the web on your TV or
play games, if the TV is your only monitor.
