you can barely feel input lag at 16.6ms (60hz), alas the way vsynching a 60fps frame rate to a 60hz monitor works is always going to be 1 frame behind (and latency is more like 22ms) (but capping the fps just under v-frequency does help somehow)

120hz monitors swap in new frames at 8.3ms intervals and input lag is almost never perceived by anyone.

You don't really want to lower the refresh rate below 60hz, as it will appear as though the game is not running at 60FPS, and you'll also get tearing unless you turn V-sync on. It can also create a really blurry image that's hard on the eyes, depending on your display.

The difference between 60hz and 120hz isn't really noticeable, eventually we'll all be using 120hz just through progression of technology, but until they're commonplace, there isn't really any point in upgrading, especially for PJ64, when the emulator doesn't even show more than 60FPS, which means a 120hz monitor will just show the same frame twice.

30Hz is really quite painful to play on. You're better off waiting for a display standard that can support the resolution at 60+Hz.
