What are my options for a 50-55 inch 1080p TV that accepts 120hz input?

Basically what the title says. I'm currently using a 60hz 39" Vizio for my Gaming HTPC but am wanting to upgrade to a larger panel (been doing some split screen gaming) that will accept 120hz inputs for when I feel like a match of CS. I've seen that there are a few 4k TVs that will do 1080p@120hz but I'm not wanting something that expensive nor do I want to reduce image quality by scaling.

The LG 50LB5900 is listed as a true 120hz panel and is only $450ish. Does anyone know if it will accept 120hz through HDMI?

Well atleast on the 4k displays you don't have to overclock the interface to do it as 30hz @ 4k = 120 Hz @ 1080p in bandwidth so your pushing the same bandwidth over the controller.

The 39 inch seiki with the 50 inch firmware does perfect pixel doubling so you don't get the same kind of scaling smoothness artifacting you get on most other displays when your running 1080p@120Hz. The 1080p@120hz scaling on the 50 inch model is unfortunately not so great (I will admit) so the 39 inch is better in that aspect.
