Best gaming monitor 2018: Top 1080p, 1440p and 4K HDR displays

Finding the best gaming monitor for you and your budget is one of the most important parts of any PC. Whether you're simply looking for a new screen or learning how to build a PC from scratch, a good monitor can be utterly transformative, whether it's a boost in image quality, refresh rate or resolution. The problem is that there are just too many of…

Acer Predator X27 review: The Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor that only lets you see half the fun

On paper, the Acer Predator X27 should be the bestest [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] to end all gaming monitors. It's got the same lovely 4K 144Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync HDR panel with 384 dynamic backlight zones and 1000cd/m2 peak brightness as the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ, but in the UK it costs £200 less than its Asus rival. That might not be of much…

AOC G2590PX review: A fussy 144Hz gaming monitor

The AOC G2590PX is the latest version of the excellent AOC G2460PF. Now with a marginally bigger screen and a sleeker, more modern design, I was absolutely convinced this 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync display would be an absolute shoo-in to replace the G2460PF as one of my [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] recommendations for 2018. Sadly, it would appear my confidence was misplaced.

AOC G2460PF review: Superb 144Hz gaming for £170

Take one look at the AOC G2460PF’s price of £170 (at time of writing) and you’d probably think it was a pretty standard kind of display. After all, 24in Full HD monitor prices often start around the £100-200 mark, and you can find several screens around the same £170 mark that don't have anything to shout about other than a mildly adjustable stand. AOC's G2460PF, however,…

Acer XF270HUA review: An oldie, but still a great 27in 144Hz monitor

Acer’s XF270HUA has been around for about a year, but this 27in monitor is still one of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s you can buy while stocks last. With a resolution of 2560x1440, a high 144Hz refresh rate for super smooth gaming and superb picture quality, this is one display you won’t mind dropping £500 on.

Why You Need A High-Refresh / 120Hz-plus Monitor

Last week we rolled out the first in a new series of why-you-need-stuff posts. The idea being, assumptions about what is good and why come a little too easily with the ongoing churn of PC hardware news and product launches. So, let's go back to basics with these assumed goodnesses. I kicked off with IPS monitor technology and while healthy discussion of the pros and…

Week in Tech: Don’t Buy A New Video Card

Actually, do. But possibly don't. Or probably do. The problem here is partly ye olde NDA or non-disclosure agreement and the threat of legal immolation at the hands of sharp-suited lawyers and their homicidal liability clauses. I'm not actually under NDA, but I've seen things that are and there's little value in getting people into trouble for the sake of 24 hours. And apparently Nvidia…
