Cyber Monday is here! Though we’ve been seeing Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals as early as Saturday, retailers are still flooding the internet with a ton of discounts on monitors and even some 4K TVs for gaming.
We’ve already seen some wild discounts on great displays that have already sold out, which goes to show that people are rushing to upgrade just in time for games like Cyberpunk 2077, or maybe they managed to track down one of those fancy RTX 30-series GPUs. In any case, we will be adding all the best deals that pop up throughout the day and the rest of the week.
If you’re paralyzed by indecision, don’t worry. It happens. Use our best gaming monitors to figure out what ‘must-have’ features you actually should consider. The fact that you’ll probably spend the next few years looking at whatever gaming monitor you’re going to buy, it’s key to make sure you’ve allocated a decent budget to get the perfect monitor to complement your gaming rig.
And a good gaming display will outlast your current PC, and potentially another upgrade or two after that. We’ve had fantastic screens last up to a decade of top quality gaming.
Right now, we’re going to say the best option for a new screen is going to be a quality 144Hz panel with a 1440p native resolution. IPS or VA panel technologies are the ones we favor—they offer much better colors than TN screens, while still hitting high refresh rates.

$349.99 $246.99 on Amazon (save $103)

Westinghouse UWQHD monitor | 34-inch | VA | 3440 x 1440 |
$449.99 $329.99 at Newegg (save $120)
The more screen the better, especially when gaming. An ultrawide monitor like this one has its advantages, showing you more of the battle field at one time, its gentle curve wrapping around you so it’s always in your peripheral vision. Feed it a fast framerate and hit its 1440p resolution, and you’ll struggle to get a finer experience without hitting the price heights of 4K.View Deal
Samsung UJ590 | 32-inch | 4K |VA |
$369.99 $269.99 at Best Buy (save $100)
Proof that a quality 4K experience from a big brand needn’t cost the earth. It may only be 60Hz and lack HDR support, but then driving this panel well beyond 60Hz is pretty implausible, and many so-called HDR monitors are nothing of the sort.View Deal
Samsung CRG9 | 49-inch | 120Hz |
$1,499.99 $999.99 on Amazon (save $500)
This 49-inch beast is comparable with the megabuck Samsung Odyssey G9 by most metrics, including DisplayHDR 1000 capability. It’s not quite as tightly curved or as fast at 4ms rather than 1ms. But with 120Hz refresh and 1000 nits of brightness, it’s still an absolute beauty.View Deal
Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | 165Hz |
$699.99 $506 at Amazon (save $200)
The XB271 is a fantastic monitor. It uses the same panel as the Asus ROG PG279Q, our pick for best gaming monitor. Here it’s about $50 below its usual Amazon price. There’s no HDR, but we don’t consider that as essential as resolution and refresh rate.View Deal
Dell SE2719HR | 27-inch | 1080p | 75Hz |
$199.99 $119.99 at Best Buy (save $80)
This budget monitor doesn’t have much to shout about in terms of resolution or refresh rate, but at $80 off, it’ll make a solid, cheap second monitor or home office screen. It’s large IPS screen is a big tick, too, and it includes AMD’s screen-tear-bothering FreeSync tech.View Deal
Samsung 24-inch FreeSync Monitor | 1080p | 75Hz |
$149.99 $89.99 at Best Buy (save $60)
This 24-inch monitor carries a budget price tag but wields an IPS screen, 75Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support. Buyers who don’t want to overspend on features they may never use (like HDR and built-in speakers) should give this one strong consideration.
Dell Curved FreeSync Monitor | 32-inch | 1440p | 165Hz |
$449.99 $329.99 at Best Buy (save $120)
This is one of the perennial deals of the year, with the 32-inches from Dell getting discounts over Prime Day and now Black Friday. It’s a quality screen with a 165Hz refresh rate, a 1440p resolution, and a VA panel. It also supports AMD’s FreeSync frame-smoothing tech for butter gaming. Mmm, buttery gaming…View Deal
Alienware AW3420DW | 34-inch | 3440×1440 | 120Hz |
$1,199.99 $1,012.71 at Amazon (save $187)
This Alienware panel is one of the best ultrawide screens around, though has always been at a rather unpalatable price. Still, at over a grand it’s a lot to spend on a screen, but with an IPS panel capable of running at 120Hz, a curve that will wrap your games around you, and a 1440p high res it’s got the goods for sure.View Deal

$429.99 $279.99 at Best Buy (save $150)
This LG monitor may have a refresh rate of 60Hz but its 4K resolution with HDR support ensures your games look stunning on this 27-inch IPS panel. It’s also rocking FreeSync support. It’s $150 saving makes it a far easier purchase to justify than usual, the only downside is that its Silver/White so it may not match the rest of your peripherals.View Deal

$1,699 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $300)
We found the 48-inch model to be the best TV for gaming, and this one is both bigger and cheaper right now. If you’ve been waiting to make the plunge into OLED territory, now is the time to jump.
Vizio UHD SmartCast TV | 65-inch | OLED |
$1,999.99 $1,499.99 at Best Buy (save $500)
This is arguably a better deal than the 55-inch above, given that you get a hefty $500 off the sticker price of the 65-inch version. It’s still impressively thin, packs a great OLED panel, and, like its smaller sibling, is still packing the same gaming-focused processing power under the hood.
Sony Bravia A9G | OLED| 55-inch |
Unless you have a vast lounge a 55-inch 4K TV is the sweet spot for big-screen televisions, and OLED is the perfect panel technology for such a beast. It’s also a great technology for gaming, delivering impeccable contrast and HDR. And with $600 off this Sony OLED it’s below $2,000 right now.View Deal
What to look out for in a Cyber Monday gaming monitor
When it comes to Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals the slack pace of progress in screen technology is a blessing. It means that a great five year-old display will still be a great gaming monitor today. So don’t be put off if the panel you’re looking at isn’t necessarily a 2020 model.
The main thing to look out for, apart from the relative historical pricing (camelcamelcamel is your friend here) of the screen in question, is its native resolution. You want it to match up to your current and prospective graphics card. If you’re going to be rocking a GPU that isn’t capable of running games at 4K then you’re wasting your money chasing that super-high UHD res.
Native resolution is also important when it comes to ultrawide screens too, and mostly because of that second number in the equation. A 3440 x 1440 display will be 1440 pixels high, and I’m going to say that’s a minimum for ultrawides; anything lower is going too far down the letterbox route.
The next number is refresh rate. Simple 60Hz screens are no good no more. Even down at the budget end of the market you can usually bank on at least a 75Hz refresh in a cheap IPS display. And, trust me, you can tell the difference even with that small a difference. Pump things up to 120Hz, 144Hz, or even 240Hz and you will definitely be able to tell.
It may sound like heresy, but it doesn’t matter if your GPU cannot deliver a solid 120fps on average, a 120Hz refresh will look great no matter what you’re doing with your new gaming monitor.
Then it’s all about panel technology. Personally I love an IPS screen, they deliver the best color accuracy but can suffer from slower response times and weak black levels, while a VA display isn’t quite as solid on color, but is quicker to respond. Only the esports pros who care nothing for visual fidelity should consider a TN panel with its weak image quality but penchant for lightning fast refresh rates and response.
If you’re planning to upgrade your machine to house one of Nvidia’s new Ampere graphics cards, such as the RTX 3080 or RTX 3090, having one of the best G-Sync monitors is necessary to make the best of these high-powered cards. G-Sync being Nvidia’s adaptive sync technology, a feature that reduces screen tearing, and display stutter, by syncing your refresh rate to that of your GPU.
Alternatively, the best G-Sync Compatible FreeSync monitors are out there, and they’re certified by Nvidia to work with G-Sync. Although they are not the best quality monitors out there, usually you can find them cheaper. They also support AMD’s FreeSync technology, if you’re looking to buy a new AMD 6000-series GPU when they become available.
