Are you looking to upgrade? The Gigabyte G27Q is an impressive gaming monitor currently on sale for $290 on Amazon this week. This FreeSync display typically lists for $330, but Amazon has slashed the price to a low of $290. The G270Q sports a native resolution of 2560×1440, DisplayHDR 400, and comes with a ton of valuable features. 

That 1440p resolution at 165Hz (144Hz via HDMI) hits the sweet spot that we recommend for gaming. It’s an excellent gaming monitor if you manage to snag yourself one of those new AMD RX 6800 GPUs or want to play your Xbox Series X at 2K/60Hz or 1080p/120Hz. The 27-inch IPS panel is also the size we recommend to give you a nice window into your games without taking over your entire desk.
