Even though Monday has passed there are still plenty of great Cyber Monday PC gaming monitor deals continuing into the week. We've already done the difficult work and found the best PC monitor deals from around the web and have organised them so you can see what the best current deals are.
What's the point of building a powerful PC with the best components if you're going to use a low-spec monitor with a low refresh rate? When it comes to monitors, you want to experience the best of what your PC can do. To help, this article is organized by monitors that sport a high refresh rate (so the action looks super smooth), monitors that boast 4K displays, and curved monitors if you've got a dramatic flair.
To get the best out of your gaming monitor, we recommend IPS or VA displays because they offer the best picture quality. You'll also want to pay extra special attention to any Cyber Monday gaming monitors that include AMD FreeSync technology or Nvidia G-Sync, depending on what brand of graphics card you use.
We'll be updating this page throughout Cyber week so make sure to check back in for the best deals. You should also check out Cyber Monday graphics card deals since you might need an upgrade to make the most of your new monitor. For everything else, check out our fully featured guide to the best Cyber Monday PC gaming deals.

Best high refresh rate gaming monitor deals
The best gaming monitors have a high refresh rate. 144Hz to 240Hz is typical, though even a 100Hz display will make a big difference compared to an ordinary 60Hz monitor. Here are the best deals on high refresh rate gaming monitors.
BenQ 27" 1440p 144Hz IPS monitor | $399.99 (Save $200)
At $400, a nice IPS display feels a little more reasonable. If you want to go 1440p and 144Hz for much cheaper, you'll have to downgrade to a TN or VA panel.View Deal
HP Omen X 25 240Hz gaming display | $449.99 (save $100)
This solid 25-inch 1080p monitor from HP features G-Sync technology and a blazing fast 240Hz refresh rate. Great for competitive esports.View Deal
Alienware 25" LED 240Hz G-Sync monitor | $279.99 (save $220)
Elsewhere this 1080p monitor is going for over $300, but Dell still has it on sale for under that during Cyber Week. It's a TN panel with only 400 nits brightness, but the investment is largely in the 240Hz refresh rate.View Deal
Acer XF270H 27" LED FHD FreeSync monitor | $189.99 (save $110)
This is about as cheap as they come for 1080p monitors. The real thrills here are the 144Hz refresh rate and the FreeSync, if you have an AMD graphics card. But, it's fast, and great for shooters.View Deal
UK high refresh rate gaming monitor deals
Dell S2416HGF gaming monitor | £199.99 (save £20)
Not the lowest price this monitor has ever been, but for your "basic" 1080p monitor, this one has a 144Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync. Great for anyone who plays a lot of shooters.View Deal
UK 4K gaming monitor deals
BenQ EL2870U 28" 4K monitor | £199.96 at Ebuyer (save £30)
This is the lowest price we've seen for one of the best budget 4K gaming monitors around. Supports FreeSync and HDR.View Deal
Best curved and ultrawide gaming monitor deals
Samsung 32-inch curved monitor | $149 (Save $100)
Aside from the curve, there's nothing fancy about this display: it's a 1080p, 60Hz entry level monitor. But if you're on a budget, this is a great deal, as this display usually goes for $200 to $250. View Deal
Samsung 49" CHG90 144Hz curved gaming monitor | $799.99 (Save $300)
Why go halfway when you could have this frankly absurd beast that is basically the equivalent of having two 1920x1080 monitors next to each other?View Deal
UK curved and ultrawide monitor deals
ASUS ROG Swift PG27VQ 27" curved gaming monitor | £566.99 (save £102.01)
This curved 1440p TN gaming monitor has a 144Hz (165Hz OC) refresh rate with neat ambient lighting, and an ultra-fast 1ms response time.View Deal

Cyber Monday monitors—are more coming?
Make sure to keep an eye on the monitors you're considering because you can expect to see sales running straight into Christmas. There's usually a bit of a lull in early December, but with Cyber Monday happening on December 2 and all the deals from that expected to run until a week after (December 9), you're realistically going to be seeing cheap prices on monitors right up until Christmas Eve.
In terms of knowing when to pounce, that's a bit trickier. Most retailers save their absolute best deals for Cyber Monday itself, but there's really no guarantee that your chosen monitor will be a part of that. There's always a headline laptop or two, and you'll definitely find plenty of quality keyboards and mice, but because monitors vary so much and cater to specific needs, the specific screen you likely won't become a headline deal.
Our advice: If it's late-November or December and you see a decent discount on the gaming monitor you want, don't hold out for a deal that might be better. Grab it.
How to save money on monitors during Cyber Monday
Perhaps the biggest problem with Cyber Monday is that the choice of offers is too bewildering. Every online store is shouting loud about everything it's selling, and it's tough to cut through the madness to separate the genuinely good deals from the overpriced garbage. While we'll be here to guide you during the event itself, here are some money saving tips to help you navigate the savings.
1. Know what you need in advance
Don't be dazzled by retailers trying to sell you benefits you don't actually need on your gaming monitor. Sure, it'd be great to have a 4K display and, oh gosh, you'll save 20 percent on this super shiny panel that does all kinds of 4K but... is the rest of your rig really up to that? And will it be 4K ready any time soon? Would you rather boost your fps instead, and get a monitor with an ultra-fast refresh rate? If you determine the rough spec that you're actually looking for before the sales begin, and look at the screens that offer best-in-class performance for those things, it's easier to cut through the noise and find what you're looking for.
2. Keep a couple of price comparison sites bookmarked
While PC Gamer will be bringing you the best deals we can find on monitors, you need to decide whether or not you're buying at the right price for you. Looking at price comparison sites like CamelCamelCamel can give you a sense of your chosen monitor's price history, and whether or not you're actually getting a good deal. It's often tempting to hold out for the 'lowest price ever' but our advice is to just look for a decent saving and not get too hung up on the screen hitting rock bottom, because that might not happen during Cyber Monday and—before you know it—the gaming monitor of your dreams is back up to full price.
3. Look out for extras
What we're increasingly starting to find is that retailers will offer extra items with gaming monitors to sweeten a specific deal. So, whereas you might see that Asus monitor you've been desperate to buy at the same price on Amazon, Newegg and B&H, one of those sites may give you a rebate, or a code for some free games, or a discount code that is only valid when you check out. It pays to have a nice long read of each product description to make sure you're not missing out on some cheeky extras.
