Gaming monitors have been one of the best upgrades you can make to your gaming PC this year. In anticipation of the end of the graphics card market and the availability of stock where it hasn’t been all year round, a gaming monitor has been a great way to prepare your setup for the ultimate power to come. Especially since they are one of the few products that are little impacted by everything that is happening in the world.
We’ve seen plenty of worthy contenders for the best gaming monitor appear over the past year, but we’ve managed to narrow it down to just three of the best to compete for the crown. Each of them is a premier example of a gaming monitor, featuring ultra-low latency, high refresh rates, stunning picture quality, and some kind of silky frame sync technology to reduce tearing. screen, but which of the three will tear the others apart a new one?
Perhaps it will be the sumptuous Dell S2722DGM VA curved panel, which hits the sweet spot of 1440p / 165Hz for current-gen graphics cards, but is actually affordable; the vast and still as simple Asus TUF Gaming VG32VQ; or the illuminated and overclockable Gigabyte Aorus FI32Q.
Stay tuned when we announce the winners on New Years Eve, you might even be surprised to know which one comes out on top … but which one would you like?
