There's a mix of curved and flat monitors to be found in AOC's new batch of super high refresh rate gaming monitors, as well as screen sizes ranging from 24in all the way…

Feature: How to build a great 1080p gaming PC without breaking the bank

The RPS Rig: Everything you need to play games for less than £1000

It's been a while since we first introduced the RPS Rig, our £1000 PC build that includes everything you need to start playing PC games, during which time prices for our prized components have gone up, down, or disappeared altogether. So I'd thought I'd give it a bit of a spring clean, especially after last week's launch of the excellent AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU.…

Get up to £50 off today’s best CPUs and gaming monitors at Currys’ Ebay store

Ebay vouchers are never simple, are they? One is doing the rounds at the moment promising 8% off all sorts of PC components and monitors, but it’s not clear which ones and why. Presumably Ebay believe that shoppers enjoy the thrill of the chase as much as parting with their hard earned cash, which feels... a stretch. Luckily, I've done the hard work for you…

Save £64 on Alienware’s ultrawide gaming monitor

Gaming monitor deals, as you may have noticed, are in somewhat short supply at the moment for pretty obvious coronavirus-shaped reasons. So if you’re shopping for a new screen, then any saving is cause for a mini celebration – although it’s clear this specific deal won’t be for everyone. Today, Scan has shaved £64 off Alienware’s AW3418DW ultrawide gaming monitor, taking its price down from…

This 144Hz, 1440p MSI gaming monitor is just £299

A few months ago, Katharine reviewed the rather excellent (and catchily-named) MSI Optix MAG272CQR gaming monitor. While it's not the best 1440p panel we’ve looked at (that honour goes to the AOC Agon AG273QX), Katharine gave it a pretty firm thumbs up thanks to its super accurate screen and high 165Hz refresh rate. At £399, it isn't bad value, but if you’d rather save £100…

Feature: Is the Agon AG353UCG the best ultrawide monitor yet?

AOC’s latest ultrawide monitor is a 200Hz Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate super screen

I love playing games on a good ultrawide monitor, and the AOC Agon AG353UCG is arguably the fanciest one that's ever crossed my desk. It's got all the bells and whistles you could possibly want: a curved 35in screen, a 3440x1440 resolution, a massive 200Hz refresh rate and full Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate support, which means it can do proper, high-end TV-grade HDR with a peak…

Feature: "We spared no expense!"

The Razer Raptor is the T-Rex of 1440p gaming monitors

It's been a long time coming, but Razer's Raptor 27 monitor is finally here - and hoo boy does it impress. When I first saw the prototype of this 27in, 2560x1440, 144Hz, FreeSync screen at CES last year, I oohed and ahhed at its striking design, metal cable tidies and fabric-wrapped display. Now, having tested the final model over the past couple of weeks, I've…

Feature: Just don't be fooled by its 'HDR Ready' sticker

MSI Optix MAG272CQR review: another fantastic 165Hz, 1440p gaming monitor

After a string of slightly disappointing 1440p gaming monitors last year, the last couple of screens that have crossed my desk have really knocked it out of the park. AOC's Agon AG273QX currently stands at the top of the pile with its superb picture quality and hassle-free FreeSync 2 HDR support (wot AMD are now calling FreeSync Premium Pro, in case you've forgotten), and now…

Get over $100 off Asus’ best 144Hz 1440p gaming monitor

Last week, you may have noticed that I've started rounding up all the Gaming monitor deals of the week in their own dedicated deals page. However, some deals, like today's offer on the excellent Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR, just don't last that long, as Amazon US are only offering $113 off this curved 2560x1440, 144Hz HDR monitor for the next 17 hours or so. So…

Feature: Especially when you hate buying new PCs

Everything you need to know about upgrading your PC in 2020

Some of you love building a PC. You’re well into hardware trends and technical innovations and model numbers and all of that. This is fine and valid. But a lot of players are just not interested. They love games on the PC, but the machinery itself is irrelevant. I am one of those people.I’m not totally clueless. I know some basics. I can put a…

The excellent Acer Nitro XV273K is currently £150 off as part of Acer's Winter UK sale right now, taking its normal price of £900 down to a more palatable £750. It's not just monitors that are on…

Feature: Taking a stand against desk-hogging monitors

Samsung’s Space monitor is a revelation

Why aren't more gaming monitors like the Samsung Space monitor? If there's one thing I've come to loathe about some of our jumbo best gaming monitor picks, it's their desk-hogging stands. Some monitors I tested last year practically demanded their own table, their stands were so enormous, while others barely left enough room for my keyboard and mouse mat. Not so with the Samsung Space.…

AOC have a new 49in monitor to rival Samsung’s CRG9

At the end of last year, you may have noticed I took quite a shine to the enormous Samsung CRG9 monitor. With its 49in screen and 5120x1440 resolution, it was an absolutely fantastic way to play Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as many of the other best ultrawide PC games available right now. Well, now AOC have one to rival it. Just like the…

I’m worried that MSI’s new HMI gaming monitor is going to kill me in my sleep

There have been plenty of new monitor announcements over the course of this week's CES tech jamboree, but none have been more terrifying than MSI's Optix MEG381CQR. This curved 38in ultrawide display is one of several new gaming screens coming from MSI this year, but it will be the first to incorporate Human Machine Interface elements, or HMI for short. It's not entirely clear what…

LG enters Nvidia BFGD arena with 12 OLED G-Sync Compatible TVs

It's all gone a bit quiet on the Nvidia BFGD (or Big Format Gaming Display) front recently, but this year's CES tech celebration has finally yielded some very promising news. LG are entering the fray this year with 12 G-Sync Compatible OLED TVs. That's right. Proper OLED TVs, not extortionate over-priced G-Sync Compatible monitors monitors.

AMD FreeSync 2 HDR is dead, long live FreeSync Premium and Premium Pro

On top of announcing their new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card and a bunch of new 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 laptop processors yesterday, AMD also announced some changes to their various FreeSync standards at this year's CES. Until now, we had regular FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR, the latter offering exactly the same variable refresh rate tech for super smooth, tear-free gaming as regular…

Acer’s massive 55in OLED monitor is coming for your TV

I really wasn't kidding when I said the hot topic of this year's CES was mad gaming monitors, as Acer have just their giant Predator CG552K screen. Measuring 55in across its diagonal, this 4K, 120Hz OLED screen could be just the thing to replace your ageing TV with if you're after some lovely big screen gaming down in your living room.

Asus have made the world’s first 360Hz gaming monitor

It's CES over in Las Vegas right now (that's the Consumer Electronics Show to give it its full and proper name), where hardware manufacturers from around the world offer up their latest gadgets and gizmos to give us a glimpse of all the cool things they've got planned for 2020. This year, the hot topic seems to be mad gaming monitors, and Asus have just…

Feature: The best games in the whole wide world

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…
