If in all my games, I'm getting 100-120fps, does that mean it won't matter whether my monitor is 144hz or 240hz? So a 240hz monitor would be useful if I got more than 144 FPS in my games?

@Hydrolex: You are correct. No sense in getting a 240hz monitor if your PC can't push the frame rates to take advantage of it. Also, no sense in having a powerful PC that can run games at over 100fps and only playing on a 60hz monitor as you are not seeing any of the frames past 60fps.
