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:

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.
