It's more difficult than ever to find savings on internal components like CPUs or RAM or even locate a high-end graphics card close to MSRP. However, buying a new monitor could have an even more dramatic effect on your tech life than improving your system's performance. The good news is that there are plenty of monitor deals to be had.

If you do any kind of PC gaming, getting a gaming monitor with a high-refresh rate and adaptive sync will completely 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.

And if you want to be productive, moving up to a higher resolution will give you more screen real estate for multitasking or editing documents. Getting a monitor with a wider color gamut will make everything you look at, including this web page, more attractive.

Below, we're listing all the best monitor deals. Whether you're shopping for one of the best gaming monitors, or just an inexpensive second or third screen, you can find.

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.

    The E1916HV is 1366x768, and not 1920x1080

    As per Dell's documentation, along with other sites that list the specs for that model.

    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...

    I notice that HDR support is ignored here for some strange reason. Win10 and now even beta Win11 games are doing a fine job supporting it in several titles currently. Win11, in fact, supports "Auto HDR", an HDR switch you can throw that remaps all of your SDR D3d11/12 titles to HDR on the fly--and I can tell you I am nothing short of amazed at how well it works! I was skeptical when they brought this into latter builds of Win10--no more. It works and works very well.

    Best monitor by far I've owned since the 1980's--and I've owned quite a few (when I think of all...that...money! Argghh! Indigestion cometh!)

    $799 gets you this 4k, Quantum Dot, DisplayHDR 1000 vesa-certified monitor( True HDR, True Wide Gamut SDR)--including a 4yr advance replacement warranty from Phillips (not a 3rd-party warranty):

    Frankly, I have no idea why they call it a "console gaming" monitor--I use only DP1.4 with it--Highly recommended as a main computer monitor. Image Quality is spectacular. You think you need a $2000 monitor to get the best? Think again. I guess some people are prejudiced against 60Hz...if you see this monitor in action you'll never have that thought again.
