If you've been waiting until payday or the end of the month to bag yourself a monitor upgrade then this one—which still won't bust your bank—could well be for you. Amazon UK is selling the Acer Nitro VG270 for just £340, which is the joint-lowest it has ever been. (For reference, it's full model title is the VG270Pbmiipx.) The 40 quid knocked off (a decent 11% reduction) might not seem like a crazy price slash, but it means that it reaches a low point in its pricing and it really highlights the value and what you get for your money.
The Nitro VG270 is filled with Acer's gaming monitor pedigree and crams a lot into a its 27-inch screen. First of all, it's an IPS panel offering 1440p max resolution and a refresh rate of 144Hz. Despite the advent, and increasing-availability, of 4K monitors, having a speedy 1440p display like this is probably the sweet spot if you're packing anything less than a 2080 in your rig. The speedy element is backed up by a 1ms response time and, while it might not have G-Sync, FreeSync should go a long way to keep your gaming experiences buttery smooth and incredibly enjoyable, no matter what you play.

This is a solid monitor purchase for those eyeing up a moderately-priced upgrade. It's not a massive saving in and of itself, but as a result the monitor has never been cheaper.
