If you've just woken up from a week-long sleep you may be worried you've missed all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals—and there have been some spectacular offers on panels this year—but have no fear, there are still monitor deals out there. There are even some 4K TVs remaining on offer that are absolutely ripe for gaming on that brand new, next-gen GPU you've had on pre-order for what feels like years. Whether it's a 1440p high refresh rate screen you're after, or a stunning OLED with variable refresh rate, there are still discounts right here for you.
We've already seen some wild discounts on great displays that have already sold out, which goes to show that people are rushing to upgrade just in time for games like Cyberpunk 2077, or maybe they've figured out how to buy an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card. In any case, we will be adding all the best deals that pop up throughout the rest of the week.
If you're paralyzed by indecision, don't worry. It happens. Use our best gaming monitors to figure out what 'must-have' features you actually should consider. The fact that you'll probably spend the next few years looking at whatever gaming monitor you're going to buy, it's key to make sure you've allocated a decent budget to get the perfect monitor to complement your gaming rig.
And a good gaming display will outlast your current PC, and potentially another upgrade or two after that. We've had fantastic screens last up to a decade of top quality gaming.
Right now, we're going to say the best option for a new screen is going to be a quality 144Hz panel with a 1440p native resolution. IPS or VA panel technologies are the ones we favor—they offer much better colors than TN screens, while still hitting high refresh rates.

$249.99 $239.99 at Newegg (save $60)

What to look out for in a Cyber Monday gaming monitor
When it comes to Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals the slack pace of progress in screen technology is a blessing. It means that a great five year-old display will still be a great gaming monitor today. So don't be put off if the panel you're looking at isn't necessarily a 2020 model.
The main thing to look out for, apart from the relative historical pricing (camelcamelcamel is your friend here) of the screen in question, is its native resolution. You want it to match up to your current and prospective graphics card. If you're going to be rocking a GPU that isn't capable of running games at 4K then you're wasting your money chasing that super-high UHD res.
Native resolution is also important when it comes to ultrawide screens too, and mostly because of that second number in the equation. A 3440 x 1440 display will be 1440 pixels high, and I'm going to say that's a minimum for ultrawides; anything lower is going too far down the letterbox route.
The next number is refresh rate. Simple 60Hz screens are no good no more. Even down at the budget end of the market you can usually bank on at least a 75Hz refresh in a cheap IPS display. And, trust me, you can tell the difference even with that small a difference. Pump things up to 120Hz, 144Hz, or even 240Hz and you will definitely be able to tell.
It may sound like heresy, but it doesn't matter if your GPU cannot deliver a solid 120fps on average, a 120Hz refresh will look great no matter what you're doing with your new gaming monitor.
Then it's all about panel technology. Personally I love an IPS screen, they deliver the best color accuracy but can suffer from slower response times and weak black levels, while a VA display isn't quite as solid on color, but is quicker to respond. Only the esports pros who care nothing for visual fidelity should consider a TN panel with its weak image quality but penchant for lightning fast refresh rates and response.
If you're planning to upgrade your machine to house one of Nvidia's new Ampere graphics cards, such as the RTX 3080 or RTX 3090, having one of the best G-Sync monitors is necessary to make the best of these high-powered cards. G-Sync being Nvidia's adaptive sync technology, a feature that reduces screen tearing, and display stutter, by syncing your refresh rate to that of your GPU.
Alternatively, the best G-Sync Compatible FreeSync monitors are out there, and they're certified by Nvidia to work with G-Sync. Although they are not the best quality monitors out there, usually you can find them cheaper. They also support AMD's FreeSync technology, if you're looking to buy a new AMD 6000-series GPU when they become available.
