Best Gsync Gaming Monitors

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
