The best gaming monitors are all about fast reaction times. They sport high refresh rates (measured in ‘Hz’) and quick response times, or the time that it takes to change a pixel’s color. Some gamers like curved gaming monitors for the added immersion, as well. Note that this section is reserved for average-sized gaming monitors. For ultrawide gaming monitors, continue on to the next section, which covers ultrawides. Here’s an overview of the best deals, within these constraints, that we were able to find:

  • 24-inch MSI G244F —
  • 24-inch Samsung Odyssey G3 —
  • 32-inch Curved AOC CQ32G3SE —

Whether you just want a ton of windows open on the same screen or need a truly immersive gaming experience, you need to check out what an ultrawide monitor can do for you. As they are so large, it should come as no surprise that ultrawides are often found amongst the best curved monitors.

How to choose the right monitor

We’ve already detailed how to choose the best monitor for your needs in a very general sense. Every single factor from size to panel and backlighting type are covered in exhaustive detail.

However, if you’re looking at monitor deals and trying to make sense of what category of monitor to buy or what to zero in on, we can help you with that here. Here’s how to choose a category, above, to shop:

Shop 4K monitor deals if you have relatively average needs. As mentioned above, 4K is essentially the new standard. You should be able to get a good one for just a few hundred dollars while on sale, and there is no need to pay a ton unless they have an impressive color gamut, LED type, or other interesting feature.

Despite their name, gaming monitor deals are for everybody. While some gaming monitors have features like fps trackers and toggleable always-on aiming reticules, the main thing that sets them apart is their high refresh rates. These high refresh rates make action in games look smoother, but will also be pleasant if you like to watch action movies or sports on your computer. The best TVs also have high refresh rates for this same reason.

Ultrawide monitors are for a special type of person and aren’t quite analogous to getting a big screen TV. Sometimes getting an ultrawide can be getting too much of a good thing, especially if you can get two smaller monitors for a cheaper price. They’ll also stream in a really funky manner if you share your screen with friends. But if you are the type that wants an ultrawide, can handle the size, and wants the experience, ultrawide monitors can provide a truly immersive experience you won’t get anywhere else. This is especially true of curved ultrawide monitors, which are often curved in a way that mimics the shape of the eye, creating a cool, relaxing effect.

If you're the type of person who prefers having a larger screen, then going for a 17-inch laptop probably makes a lot of sense.

Luckily, some of the best laptop brands out there make 17-inch laptops, so you're not having to rely on a generic brand.

To that end, we've gone out and found some of our favorite 17-inch laptop deals out there, including HP laptop deals, Dell laptop deals (and Dell XPS laptop deals), and gaming laptop deals.

This Alienware 14-inch gaming laptop deal cuts the price by $600
Forza Horizon 5 running on the Alienware x14 R2.

While there is a lot of interest in larger gaming laptops that come in 17-inch and 18-inch sizes, for many, having a smaller laptop is much better, especially if they are constantly on the move and don't want to be lugging around something massive. That's where the Alienware x14 R2 comes in quite handy; it's a small laptop that's slim enough to fit into pretty much any bag so that you can travel and move around without having to purchase a specific backpack or messenger bag to fit something bigger. Of course, being Alienware, its quite expensive, but luckily you can grab yourself the Alienware X14 R2 directly from Dell for just $1,400 rather than the usual $2,000.

Why you should buy the Alienware x14 R2
Probably one of the most important parts of any gaming laptop is the GPU under the hood, and in this case the Alienware x14 R2 has a relatively solid RTX 4060. That's a great card for 2K gaming at around 60-70fps, and while you probably won't be able to have the game in ultra graphical settings, you'll get somewhere between medium and high. Even so, it's a great option for those who prefer more casual or indie games, or even free-to-play games like Rocket League and League of Legends, since these games tend to be better optimized for more hardware than just the high-end stuff.
