Check out these cheap 4K and 1080P monitors

If you're looking buy a new monitor and don't want to spend to a fortune, you have options. We found a couple that are on sale, and while these aren't exactly the best gaming monitors out there, they're at least serviceable. Just as importantly, they're cheap.

First up is a 1080P display. Acer's K2 series K242HQL is on sale at Newegg for $112.99, and if you use coupon code EMCSEPPX2, it knocks the price down to $89.99. At that price, it's worth considering even for a secondary display, either as a backup or to pair with a budget build.

The specs aren't terribly exciting at this price point—it's a TN panel with a 1920x1080 resolution at 60Hz, albeit with a rated 1ms refresh rate. Acer also claims a 100,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 300 nits brightness.  $89.99 (use coupon code EMCSEPPX2) 

If it's a 4K monitor you're after, BuyDig is selling a 28-inch Dell S2817Q (shown above) on Ebay for $219. This same model sells for $287.47 (sale price) on Amazon, and $299.99 on Newegg.
