Gigabyte's AORUS KD25F gaming monitor combines a great look with next-level performance. This frameless 25-inch 1080p resolution monitor is "eSports grade," and that's probably an accurate description considering the fact that it has a ridiculous 240Hz refresh rate to keep the action on screen humming without a hitch. Couple the fast refresh rate with just a 0.5ms response time, and you're in for a consistently smooth experience. The monitor supports G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync technology and comes with an adjustable ergonomic stand.
While not a new trend, AAA games tend to have massive install sizes, and online multiplayer games with frequent updates (such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) get exponentially larger as time goes on. If you often find yourself running out of space on your gaming PC, Western Digital's Element 6TB hard drive is available at a steep discount.
