All kinds of technologies are on the rise. Companies race against each other in creating the best solutions for each specific customer. PC monitors are just one of many types of equipment that is incredibly important nowadays, especially for gamers. Colour palette, contrast, brightness, refresh rate – it all matters, despite what many people initially think. The biggest difference is usually seen when you pair two monitors near each other and compare those with your own eyes.
Good monitor is able to keep up with you for even a decade, unlike other types of hardware. That’s why we’ve prepared a list of best gaming monitors in 2018.
This model of ASUS monitor is probably one of the best choice when it comes to displays with FreeSync technology. For those who still don’t know what FreeSync is, it’s a technology used in LCD monitors and its aim is to synchronize the refresh rate of the monitor with generation rate from GPU. FreeSync refresh rate ranges from 9 to 240 Hz. Let’s get back to the monitor. Refresh rate speeds reach up to 144HZ.
What does the monitor offer:
1. 27-inch monitor
2. resolution up to 2560×1440
3. better refresh rate than in some 4k monitors
4. smooth anti-gloss coating that doesn’t affect image quality
5. 2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort and 1x Mini DP inputs
6. Exceptional contrast ratio
Why is this monitor recommended here instead of other similar models? That’s of course due to the price, which is noticeably smaller than in other models offering FreeSync.
Good and affordable
In nearly every case, when purchasing a monitor, each additional high-end feature costs hundred of $. In VG248QE we won’t see any of those, however, that’s not a reason to ignore this model. It’s very cheap and yet it views a great picture on the screen. With 144Hz refresh rate, 24-inch, 1690x1080p TN display this is a great model to check out. For only ~$250 you can have much better monitor than some models with 60Hz refresh rate.

Keep in mind though that running a game in 4k and displaying it properly you might require exceptional GPU (GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or better).
