Monitors are easily the most expensive PC peripherals, but if you want to get the best gaming and entertainment experience, then they’re worth every penny. Thankfully, the 2020 Prime Day deals have arrived following the sale’s summer delay and there are plenty of juicy bargains on offer that are just for the gamers out there — including, of course, some excellent Prime Day monitor deals that can save you serious money. One of the best of the bunch is this discount on our favorite ultrawide gaming monitor, the 34-inch Alienware AW3420DW, which you can score right now for just $650.

For a long time, gamers who wanted more screen real estate than a standard 16:9 monitor could provide had to resort to setting up multiple displays. That has its advantages along with some notable disadvantages; namely, you can’t really get a continuous ultrawide picture due to the image being broken up across several screens with bezels separating the panels. Even with today’s super-slim bezels, the result is not a very clean look. Enter ultrawide monitors like the excellent Alienware AW3420DW, which offer a much more streamlined and immersive experience (not to mention one that results in considerably less cable clutter).

Of all the ultrawide monitors that we’ve spent time with, we picked the Alienware AW3420DW as the best one for gaming thanks to its full suite of gaming-friendly features not found on most PC displays. Its curved 34-inch IPS panel is easy on the eyes (IPS is superior to more common VA and TN panels when it comes to color accuracy and viewing angles), and its ultrawide 3440 x 1440 4K Ultra HD resolution is perfect for everything from gaming to watching movies. That extra screen space means that the Alienware AW3420DW is also great for work and multitasking and not just for entertainment.

The display boasts an enhanced refresh rate of 120Hz (the target for gaming at 60 frames per second — any less and you’re likely to experience lag and stuttering), while Nvidia G-Sync technology delivers a smooth picture that’s free of screen-tearing during fast-paced action. The Alienware AW3420DW has both HDMI and DisplayPort connections as well, but bear in mind that you’ll want to use the included DisplayPort cable in order to get the most out of an Nvidia graphics card.

For Prime Day, Prime members can grab the excellent Alienware AW3420DW 34-inch ultrawide curved gaming monitor on sale for just $650. That’s the best price we’ve ever seen for this display and it’s a worthy addition to any gaming battle station.
