Question Is there a point in buying HDMI 2.1 4K monitors for PS5 when most games are capped at 60fps anyway?

Hello! Looking to buy a monitor for my PS5 and the HDMI 2.1 monitors I see costs an arm an a leg - will I even utilize the HDMI 2.1 features (with 120hz) on my PS5 or am I better off with buying the 4K monitors with 60hz? For reference, I am looking at the Acer Nitro 28" HDMI 2.1 monitor - but also looking for suggestions, if other non-HDMI 2.1 monitors are more than sufficient for console gaming.

For those with a 4K monitor with HDMI 2.0/60fps, how is your experience and the image quality with PS5?

Thanks in advance! :)

2.1 is also needed for adaptive sync so even at 60fps it should still be better than 2.0 without adaptive sync. If it is beneficial enough to pay more for the monitor then that is up to you.
Right, thanks for that. Sorry, if my question seems ignorant. I was genuinely interested to know if 2.1's worth it.
