A big, beautiful display just begging to sit upon your desk and wrap you in the latest, hottest games, this curved Acer monitor is a bargain at near $200 using the code EMCTYTV47.

This is the type of rare deal where you can grab a curved monitor for roughly the same price a flat monitor with the same specs would cost, and you'll get the added benefits of the way the display curves around your field of vision. Curved panels are the closest you're likely to get to full immersion without strapping a VR headset to your dome so making the jump from flat to curve is definitely worth your consideration. The 144hz refresh rate is an added boon, particularly if you've got a powerful rig that can run modern games at really high frame rates, and the 4ms response times means you'll never experience perceptible latency. 

It's a lot of monitor for the money, and if you're looking for a great desk upgrade on the cheap, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal.
