Best Gsync Gaming Monitors – The best G-Sync monitor will extract the smoothest gaming experience possible from your Nvidia graphics card. Nvidia G-Sync tech started being added to monitors in 2013 and is still the best screen tear and display stutter solution around today.
But what does G-Sync do anyway? Essentially G-Sync is Nvidia’s frame synchronisation technology, which uses dedicated monitor processing to attune your monitor’s refresh rate to your graphics card’s output, for a smooth gaming experience. You’ll need an Nvidia graphics card to make the most of this tech, though, and these cards are pretty elusive right now.
1.Pixio PX279 Prime
Pros & Cons
- 27 inch FHD 1920 x 1080p Resolution IPS HDR Professional Esports Gaming Monitor
- IPS Panel, HDR Ready and 400nit Brightness for rich and detailed contrasts
- 240Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms (GTG) Response Time, AMD Radeon FreeSync (Range: 48-240Hz), Flicker Free, Low Blue Light & G-Sync Compatible
- CONNECTIVITY: 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x HDMI 1.4,
- Compatible with Console & PC platforms. Includes Displayport Cable, power cable and stand.
Of late, there has been no letup in the refresh rate battle. Though 144 Hz gaming monitors are almost a dime a dozen, there are plenty of faster screens to be had too. 240 Hz displays are becoming commonplace, and the bleeding edge is now at 360 Hz.
When the word “commonplace” creeps into the narrative, it brings an inevitable drop in prices. More competition equals better value. Pixio embraces this economic inevitability with a host of high-performance panels that sell for reasonable money while competing with some of the best gaming monitors specs-wise.
2.ASUS VP249QGR 23.8”
Pros & Cons
- 23. 8 inch Full HD (1920x1080) LED backlit display with IPS 178° wide viewing angle panel
- Up to 144Hz refresh rate with Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync ) technology to eliminate tracing and ensure crisp and clear video playback
- ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB ) technology enables a 1ms response time (MPRT) together, eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates
- ASUS Eye Care technology with flicker-free backlighting and blue light filter to minimize eye
- Extensive connectivity including DisplayPort, HDMI and D-sub ports and VESA wall-mountable to save on desktop space
The ASUS VP249QGR is yet another 24″ 1080p 144Hz gaming monitor based on PANDA’s IPS panel. It’s the least expensive model, but as such, it skimps on certain features such as design versatility.
Its performance and image quality, however, are on par with (or even better) certain more expensive alternatives! Overall, it’s an excellent budget gaming monitor.
There are better (though slightly more expensive) alternatives, but if you have a limited budget you won’t be disappointed by the VP249QGR.
3.ASUS 24″ 1080P
Pros & Cons
- 24 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with an overclockable 165Hz (supports 144Hz) rapid refresh rate and 0.5ms (GTG) response time
- NVIDIA G-SYNC technology removes stutter and screen tearing for the smoothest gaming experience
- ASUS Eye Care technology with flicker-free and blue light filter to minimize eye fatigue
- Flexible connectivity with HDMI (v1 4) DisplayPort 1.2 and Dual-link DVI-D ports
- Ergonomically-designed stand with tilt swivel pivot height adjustment plus wall-mount capability for ultimate viewing comfort
- Exclusive GameVisual & Gameplus functions to enhance color performance and control
The VG248QE uses a design similar to its bigger sibling, the Asus VG278HE. It sports thin glossy black bezels, a glossy black cabinet, and a matching stand that consists of a round base with a Lazy Susan swivel mechanism and a telescoping mounting arm that offers pivot, height, and tilt adjustability.
The base has a 3D logo, signifying that the panel is 3D ready, but as with the Asus VG278HE, the monitor does not come with the Nvidia 3D Vision 2 kit needed to view multi-dimensional content, although you can pick one up online for around or so.
4.Alienware 25 AW2521HF
Pros & Cons
- LIGHTENING FAST: An incredibly fast 240Hz refresh rate allows for fast-moving visuals to be seen with outstanding clarity so you can react quicker to in-game situations
- ACCELERATE YOUR REACTIONS: A 1ms GtG (Gray to Gray) response time allows for consistently smooth performance during intense, high-speed gameplay and eliminates motion blur
- TRUE COLORS, REAL SPEED: New, fast IPS technology helps maintain image clarity from every angle of the screen. Plus, with up to 99% sRGB color coverage, you have a wide array of colors in your arsenal
- EMPHASIZE EVERY DETAIL: AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible technology synchronizes the graphics and gaming monitor, so you get epic, tear-free images that don't slow down your gameplay
- STAY COOL UNDER PRESSURE: The unique cooling and venting design at the top, bottom and rear side of the monitor provides an optimized ventilation system, keeping your gaming monitor cool during the most intense of battles
The Alienware 25, in its so-called Lunar Light color scheme we tested (model AW2521HFL), is white and black, just like Alienware’s recent Aurora desktops (as well as the Sony PlayStation 5). The 25-inch screen is flat and has barely any bezel, with only a thin black band running along three edges. A narrow black strip on the bottom edge features the Alienware logo.
On the back, most of the monitor is white plastic, with black inserts where the ports can be found and on the joint where the stand connects to the screen. It’s a striking look, and a nice departure from the usually boxy, black look of most monitors, even many elite gaming ones. (That said, Alienware also offers a blacked-out version dubbed “Dark Side of the Moon,” model AW2521HF)
5.Sceptre IPS 27-Inch
Pros & Cons
- Wide Viewing Angles: Wide viewing angles keep all the action sharply in sight from almost any viewing position while gaming on large monitors or dual-display setup.
- Fast Response Time: Playing fast action games and watching action adventure movies always require fast and accurate pixel response from an LED. With quick response times, ghosting and blurring are reduced so the user can enjoy the display with clarity and precision.

- 99% sRGB Color Gamut: With 99% sRGB, our display reveals an astonishing brightness and variance in red, green, and blue color across a wide gamut, providing a more defined and naturalistic display of color in every image.
- Blue Light Shift: Reduce your monitors blue light to protect you from eye fatigue, irritation and strains. This enables you to work on your documents, watch movies, or play games more comfortably for extended periods.
- Anti-Flicker: Provides a crisper picture by preventing the backlight from flickering periodically.
Now’s a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always Sceptre deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there’s a massive range to choose from. High quality graphics are super important when you’re playing and the gaming monitors sometimes sold with PCs are pretty rubbish. You may also want to use a monitor alongside a gaming laptop.
The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.
Best Gsync Gaming Monitors – You’ve probably seen gaming monitors proudly display they’re G-Sync Ready or G-Sync Compatible. These kinds of monitors include no dedicated silicon, so they’ll often be a cheaper option. For best results on an Nvidia-bound setup, find one that’s been certified by Nvidia. The added benefit here is that they also offer support for AMD’s competing FreeSync technology.
But be aware, while G-Sync features work with some FreeSync monitors, the reverse isn’t true—AMD’s adaptive sync technology won’t work on a G-Sync monitor. So if you have an AMD graphics card, or are planning on getting one, then you’re better off choosing from one of the best G-Sync compatible FreeSync monitors instead.
