If you're looking to snag a great deal on a gaming monitor before the holidays kick off, then Cyber Monday is your best chance. Black Friday had a ton of discounts on some of the best gaming monitors out there, and many of those are continuing into Cyber Monday. Whether you're looking for a high resolution, fast refresh rate, or short response time, there's a deal on a monitor that's right for the type of games you play. Competitive gamers who play shooters and other genres will get a kick out of some of the 240Hz monitors that are discounted, providing an incredibly smooth image and experience.
One of the biggest features that has become more prominent this year is HDMI 2.1, which the PS5, Xbox Series X, and the RTX 30 series of graphics cards take advantage of. This technology gives you access to 4K and 120Hz as well as features like variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low-latency mode (ALLM). Unfortunately, however, there are no monitors with HDMI 2.1 at the moment. That means we can't determine the best gaming monitor for PS5 or the best gaming monitor for Xbox Series X. Thankfully, all of the monitors in our list are perfectly capable of displaying both new consoles, you just won't get access to these extra benefits. If these deals don’t fit your needs, be sure to check out our list of the best cheap gaming monitors.
