Acer's 27-inch KG271U monitor is down to just $206 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (if it's sold out there, you can also find it for $210 at Newegg (opens in new tab)), which makes it one of the best tech deals (opens in new tab) on a FreeSync (opens in new tab)monitor currently available. It comes with a 1440p (opens in new tab)resolution panel with a very fast 1ms response time.

This monitor is a great fit if you want your games to look sharper than they would on a 1080p (opens in new tab) monitor. And with FreeSync at up to its 75Hz refresh rate, the display should smooth out frames well. It's slower than the best gaming monitors (opens in new tab), but for casual gaming, it'll do the job just fine without breaking the bank on more expensive graphics card (opens in new tab) and monitor purchases.
