If you’ve never played your favourite game on a gaming monitor, you’re missing out! In fact, playing your favourite game on a Gaming Monitor for the first time is probably one of those events you have to experience yourself to understand truly. Furthermore, it’s an experience that’s made even more breath-taking if you’ve happened to spend the last few gaming years playing on an ordinary desktop monitor. This is because Gaming Monitors take artwork and graphics that look impressive on an ordinary monitor, and turn it into something else entirely. With vibrant colours, incredible resolutions, high-speed monitor refresh rates and rapid response times - Gaming Monitors are how games were always meant to be played. Keep an eye out for advanced technologies such as NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync that provide a smooth gaming experience.
Monitors that support AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology synchronise the panel's refresh rate to the frame rate produced by a graphics card for silky smooth gaming free from stutter and screen tears. Available in a wide range of resolutions, including ultra wide 2,560 x 1,080, these monitors are a gamer's best friend. For FreeSync gaming, you'll need to check you've got a supported AMD graphics card and connect to the monitor using DisplayPort.
The ultimate upgrade for NVIDIA GeForce graphics card owners, these monitors all support the firm's G-SYNC technology, which automatically synchronises the panel's refresh rate with the current frame rate being produced by a graphics card, ensuring silky smooth gaming free from stutter and screen tearing. Available in resolutions up to 4K and with refresh rates up to 144Hz, there's something for everyone. Most modern NVIDIA GPUs support G-SYNC, but check to make sure yours does, and remember to use DisplayPort.
Designed for a wide range of applications including home/small office, graphics, video playback, presentations and gaming.
These screens are the next big thing in display technology - literally. They've got a mighty 3,840 x 2,160 resolution to ensure that movies and games look as good as possible, and many of these screens are large enough to dominate a desk. Just ensure that you can afford one of these high-end panels - and that your graphics card has enough power to drive so many pixels if you want to play games.
