 Asus TUF Gaming VG27WQ monitor: was $399.99, now $329.99 @ Newegg
This 27-inch curved WQHD display sports HDR400, a 165 Hz refresh rate with FreeSync, flicker-free low blue light technology, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and a 3000:1 contrast ratio — all housed in a svelte design with VESA compatible mounting. View Deal

The more you read down the spec list, the more this deal is a no-brainer. This is a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p resolution, a 3000:1 contrast ratio and DisplayHDR400 certification for greater luminosity.

Gameplay is kept silky smooth at a fast 165 Hz refresh rate, with FreeSync built-in to stop any screen tearing (AMD’s adaptive sync technology). And all of this is enclosed in a nicely designed chassis with an infinite level of customization on its own stand or VESA mounting compatibility, to easily fit into your setup.

If you’re after the cream of the crop in this category, take a look at our best gaming monitors list. They are better, but also far more expensive. For those of you looking for a great option on a budget, the VG27WQ is a seriously good choice.

    "2K"... It's 1.4K.

    Oops! You are totally wrong!

    2k = 1920x1080
    4k = 3840x2160

    Now where does 2560x1440 fit? 3k? Sure. It sure af isn't 1.4k... I think you need to go back to remedial basic computer operation class at your local community college.

    How about we just start calling standard 1440p monitors by their proper name, which is QHD.

    3k would be 2880x1620.

    That's not exactly right either. People will casually refer to 1080p as 2K and 2160p as 4K, but the DCI standard for 2K is 2048 x 1080 and for 4K it is 4096 × 2160.

    Yes, because resolution has everything to do with basic computer operation.

    So next you're going to tell me that the Samsung Odyssey C49G95T is a 5k monitor instead of using the lowest denominator?

    No one should really care about DCI when it comes to Display Resolutions on a PC, where the overall quality of the picture is decided, again by the lowest denominator.

    But hey you do you, and also good job on acting as a grown up with your childish "get educated" stab. xD
