Now Playing: The History of Black Friday

With 4K on the rise and high refresh rate becoming more common, now is a good to time take a look at gaming monitors. These displays packed with great specs have become more affordable, even moreso with Black Friday sales going on now. So, we took a look at several retailers to find the best deals on PC gaming monitors. Note that some of these items may run out of stock during the course of these sales.

Be sure to check which retailer is offering the specific monitor mentioned in the following sections by scrolling down to the full list. All monitors are available to ship and will either be from Newegg, Micro Center, or Best Buy.

The first set of monitors to highlight are 1080p displays. The AOC E2429SWHE is a very basic 24-inch monitor for just $100 and the Acer K272HL at $120 or Samsung S27E330H at $150 are cheap 27-inch options. High refresh rate displays with a 1080p resolution are also affordable; look to the 144Hz 27-inch Acer GN276HL for $190, 144Hz 24-inch Asus MG248QR for $200, or the curved 27-inch 144Hz MSI Optix G27C2 with FreeSync for $230. And if 144Hz still isn't a fast enough refresh rate for you, the 24.5-inch Acer Predator XB252Q runs 240Hz with G-Sync and is available for $430.

High-end PCs are powerful enough to step resolution up to 1440p, and these displays are increasingly common and affordable. On the cheaper end, we have the 27-inch 75Hz FreeSync Acer K271U for $200, the 27-inch IPS BenQ GW2765HT at $230, the 25-inch IPS Dell Ultrasharp U2518D for $250, and the 27-inch IPS Acer K272HUL at $270. There are still high refresh rate options that won't break the bank, like the 27-inch 144Hz Asus MG278Q with FreeSync for $340, 27-inch 144Hz Dell S2716DGR with G-Sync at $350, or 24-inch 165Hz Dell S2417DG with G-Sync for $360. The Samsung C32H711 with FreeSync for $400 offers much more screen space with its 32-inch panel. For no compromises in terms of specs, the AOC Agon AG271QG packs G-Sync, 144Hz, and an IPS panel into a 27-inch monitor for $550.

4K displays have been gaining ground in the PC monitor space as they've become cheaper. The three following monitors are 28-inch 4K FreeSync displays: Acer CB281HK at $250, AOC 2879VF for $270, and Samsung UE590 at $290. Both the LG 27MU58-B and LG 27UD58-B are 27-inch IPS 4K monitors with FreeSync for $300. Not many 4K monitors offer HDR, but the 32-inch Acer ET322QK with FreeSync and HDR is going for $320. The 28-inch quantum dot Samsung U28H750 with FreeSync brings high picture quality for just $330.

Ultrawide 21:9 monitors are fairly niche, but give you much more screen space for your peripheral vision. Two 75Hz FreeSync IPS monitors with a 2560x1080 resolution are on sale; the 29-inch LG 29UB55-B for $200 and the 34-inch LG 34UM69G for $280. If you're aiming for the very high-end 21:9 displays, the 34-inch Asus ROG PG348Q packs in G-Sync, 100Hz, and a high 3440x1440 resolution for $920. If that's not big enough, the 38-inch Dell Ultrasharp U3818DW is discounted at $1000.

I bought the Dell S2716DGR 27-inch 144Hz G-Sync -- $350 (Best Buy) from Dell for 450 in May 2017 and it has been a geat experience running single player games maxed out. I don't get 144 frames on campaign mode with high or ultra settings but when I play multiplayer, I drop the settings a bit to get it around 140ish. Great monitor recommend buying it.

I personally don't care for 4K or HDR Monitors just yet anyways until they become mainstream. I still love my 1440p/60fps Acer monitor since I still see 1440p as the gold standard resolution for maintaining 60fps vs 4K/30fps without doing SLI.

Now however, I would like to switch from 1440p/60fps to 1440p/144Hz in the future but seeing Best Buy has 144Hz G-Sync for $350, I might have pull the trigger assuming I can get one. That's a nice sweet deal!

@davillain-: It is I have that one, been playing wolf 2 maxed out but I only get 90-100 frames with a gtx 1080.

Just wanted to mention that a great 32" samsung curved monitor on black friday for $200. Even though the pixel density is shallow because of the 1080p being stretched to fill in so much real estate - you still get great color, features, and decent 4ms speed. Not web page text friendly without some adjustment though .

its at walmart black friday ad, a few pages in.

if you set a couple feet away and adjust the monitor well, and set it eye level , the curved screen will give you some great immersion in your game. It is a fantastic buy and monitor for that price.

So no deal on 4k tvs I guess console gamers play their console on monitors.

@hardcoregamer1: I play my console on monitors as well, the color, pixel density, contrast and speed of a good quality monitor will toast and TV out there, they simply are two different kinda beasts.

but i for sure look to my samsung 60" for group activities.

@hardcoregamer1: If it’s competitive, a monitor is best. Tv’s for chilled Single player games. That’s just my preference.
