Not sure how you came up with it being 30Hz
Lowest lcd t.v. I've seen is 60Hz :/
Possibly you got that from the minimum fps reading ?

Oh yes.My LED LCD T.V is 60Hz ...
Is that good for gaming or not?
Is that being an obstacle in slight drops of FPS?

REMIND you some games are running at 60fps.Some arn't. ..

Hi,
That is what I figured

Besides the already posted upgrades you just have to adjust your game settings inside the games
The very basic adjustment I use in NVidia control panel is use quality,
Might loose some frame rates but at least everything will look good
You can also check the resolution section and make sure it's set to use 60Hz.

Hello

Here are my Nvidia Control Panel Settings & Screen Resolution Settings (Kindly , see the attached picture).These settings were suggested by a you-tube up-loader , who said that these are settings for a GTX Nvidia settings for 900 Card Series ...Since my Nvidia graphics card is also a 900 series card (Gtx 960 2 GB),so i am also using these settings.And to be honest , the result is remarkable in some of the games that touch 60fps or 50 fps.

One strange thing to notice is that when i switch on my Sharp LED LCD T.V , it says "720p 50Hz" (Kindly , see the ATTACHED PICTURE)but when i start a Video Game , it says "720p 60Hz" ( Kindly , see the attached picture) .Also the refresh rate inside the game settings is set to 60Hz as default.

And it has been 10 Months or so , since i have been using this HDMI Cable ....

Hi,
A high speed cable will transfer signal faster which will give you a better picture which for gaming will give the best performance yes.
