Everybody wants to know where to buy an RTX 3080 card, an RTX 3070 or an RX 6800 XT (spoiler alert: it's going to be a struggle), but even the best graphics cards are worthless without a great monitor to output to. That's why we've pointed out that buying a new monitor is the best PC upgrade this right now

With the right Prime Day discount, you can find a high-refresh-rate 1080p monitor for much less than $200, or a 4K, non-gaming screen for well under $300. And now, as we are a few months through 2021, we're seeing some great monitor deals and will be highlighting the best ones below.

You can also find savings by checking out our detailed list of coupon codes, including Dell coupon codes, Lenovo coupon codes and Newegg promo codes.

Specs to look out for

Manufacturer - Keep an eye out for familiar brands and avoid deals from unknown manufacturers.

Size - Monitors come in many sizes, always verify the exact size of the monitor you're looking at. The number refers to the measurement of the screen corner to corner.

Shape - While most modern displays are flat, curved monitors have started to trend.

Refresh Rate - Look for the refresh rate when considering a monitor. The higher the refresh rate, the better.

Resolution - A 4K monitor will have a higher resolution than a 2K monitor. Double-check the resolution before you indulge in a tempting deal.

    The E1916HV is 1366x768, and not 1920x1080

    so 4k @ 60hz means you need to push 497,664,000 pixles per second. 2k @ 144hz means you need to push 530,841,600 pixles per second. Mind you that these numbers are to achieve 60 fps at 4k constantly or 144 fps constantly at 2k.

    I found this article on the UK website but all of the deals are US. Can we please get a UK version of this article? I trust Tomshardware for my tech purchases, it would be great to rely on you for picking up a budget 27" 1440p monitor or 65" TV tomorrow.

    the prices at NewEgg seem a bit off. when you add postage - which for some reason is £30 > £40 it's the same price as competitors. and the competitors can get it the next day (insured as well for accidental damage). whereas Newegg, it almost a 1month...

    I get the feeling that it's shipped from the US, which means add customs fees as well. which will be +20% and a handling fee.

    eg Gigabyte G27FC - would be about £310 - Scan has the same screen delivered for £270 inc vat

    Ideal monitor:

    8k panel @ 60Hz, 32" IPS, supersharp text and images for browsing and work.
    For gaming, 2x scaling gives you 4k @ 144Hz, 3x scaling gives you 2.5k @ 165Hz, 4x scaling gives you FullHD @ 240Hz. All pixel perfect. All on the same panel. All using DP 1.4 (5 years old standard - almost ancient by now). Fully supported by 10xx series GPUS and above (released 5 years ago - almost ancient by now).
    If only people stopped buying the low resolution rubbish flooding the shops at the moment, we could get wonders like that right now, not in 10 years. The tech is already here.
    I will keep dreaming...
