No matter how great your latest GPU or CPU upgrade, your tech life won't change as much as you'd like if you're still staring at the same old screen. If you do any kind of PC gaming, getting a gaming monitor with a high-refresh rate will change the way you play, eliminating tearing and ghosting. Upgrading to a larger screen or one with a higher resolution will let you have a more immersive experience or see more content at once. And, if you like your primary display(s), adding additional ones will improve your multitasking.
The good news is that there are plenty of great monitor deals to be had this holiday season. Amazon and other retailers such as Newegg , Dell and Best Buy are offering amazing savings on screens right now and we're tracking them to help you find the right one. Whether you're shopping for one of the best gaming monitors, or just an inexpensive secondary or portable display, check out the highlighted monitor deals below.

Specs to Look For: Monitor Deals
Size - 27 inches seems to be the typical entry-level size where 24 inches is small and 32-inches or higher should be considered large.
Refresh Rate - If you're a gamer, you'll prefer a high-refresh rate display that's at least 120 Hz and supports FreeSync and / or G-Sync technology. Unless you're an esports professional, you probably don't need more than 165 Hz.
Resolution - 4K is the top resolution most people can afford, but it can be expensive if you want both high resolution and high refresh rates. You can usually get a good price on 2K, high refresh monitors and even better savings on 1080p screens.
