It's more difficult than ever to find savings on internal components like CPUs or RAM or even locate a high-end graphics card in stock. 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 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.
