Your gaming monitor is an essential part of your PC, so finding the best gaming monitor for you and your budget is absolutely vital. It can be difficult when there are so many to choose from, too, but our best gaming monitor guide is here to help.

Feature: 144Hz and AMD FreeSync for under £200 / $200

AOC’s C24G1 is the new successor to the best budget gaming monitor throne

For years, the AOC G2460PF has been sitting atop our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] list unchallenged and undefeated. With its sub-£200 / $200 price, 144Hz refresh rate and superb TN panel, it's by far one of the best screens around for those on a budget. The only problem is that it's getting on a bit now, and is becoming increasingly difficult to track down.…

Feature: The competition for best budget 4K monitor just got a little bit hotter

AOC G2868PQU review: 4K gaming on a budget

If you've been thinking about upgrading to a 4K gaming monitor recently, then the good news is that you needn't spend upwards of £2500 / $2500 on something like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ or Acer Predator X27 to get one that's halfway decent. Indeed, you can happily shave off one of those zeroes and get the brilliant value for money BenQ EL2870U, or even…

Feature: Going against the grain

AOC Agon AG273QCG review: 1440p G-Sync goodness, with a catch

Nvidia G-Sync monitors already cost an arm and a leg more than regular gaming monitors, but bump the resolution up to 2560x1440 and throw in a curved panel with a 165Hz refresh rate and you're looking at spending an arm and a leg plus both of your kidneys. All right, so £649 / $650 for AOC's new Agon AG273QCG isn't quite as bad as, say,…

AOC U2879VF review: 4K gaming on the cheap

The [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s with 4K resolutions often cost an absolute fortune these days, mostly because of all the RGB bells and Nvidia G-Sync whistles that tend to accompany them. The delightfully plain 28in AOC U2879VF, however, sits at the opposite end of the spectrum, ditching several of the fancy extras you'd find on your typical 4K 'gaming' screen in favour of a…

Feature: To boldly go where no gaming monitor has a-gon before?

AOC Agon AG322QC4 review: An excellent FreeSync 2 HDR monitor, brightness be damned

HDR on PC (or high dynamic range) is all well and good when it actually works, but let's face it, no one wants to shell out north of £2000 / $2000 on one of Nvidia's fancy G-Sync HDR monitors like the Acer Predator X27 or Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ when it's still so damn fiddly to get right. Admittedly, things aren't any simpler over on…

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 unveil first FreeSync 2 monitor, the AGON AG322QC4

The vast majority of PC gamers may own Nvidia graphics cards, but when it comes to the world of gaming monitors and adaptive frame rate technologies, AMD rule the roost. The reasons for this are unknown. Perhaps it's because AMD's FreeSync tech (see our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] guide for more info on the Free vs G debate) doesn't require monitor companies to pay an…

AOC’s new AG352UCG6 monitor brings 120Hz to ultrawide gaming

Just in case you haven't had enough of curved, ultrawide monitors recently, you'll be pleased to hear that AOC is about to unveil a brand new one at this year's Intel Extreme Masters tournament in Katowice, Poland. Dubbed the AG352UCG6 Black Edition (yes, that's the AG352UCG I reviewed with a 6 on the end), this 35in, 3440x1440 MVA monitor now comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, allowing you…

AOC E2470SWH review: An OK pick for a cheap second screen

Adding a second screen to your PC can bring several benefits, whether it's giving you more space to work or, for the YouTube and Twitch crowd, the ability to read web pages while you game. Finding room in your budget for one, however, is often much harder, especially if you've already spent a lot on your first monitor. Enter the AOC E2470SWH.

AOC G2460VQ6 review: 75Hz gaming on a budget

Given they share all but three of the same letters, you'd think the AOC G2460VQ6 would be pretty similar to the G2460PF I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. To some extent, they are - both share an almost identical outward appearance with an understated red stripe down the lower bezel, and each has a 24in TN panel that supports AMD's adaptive frame-rate technology, FreeSync, which…

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,…
