Video games are all about the "video" part. So why waste time gaming with a display that can't give you an awesome experience? If you're looking for a significant upgrade to your current setup, Amazon's Acer Predator X27 monitor is on sale for $1,649, which is $350 down from its list price of $1,999. That's 18% off, with free Amazon tech support included with your purchase.
This 27-inch IPS panel is a beast, especially at this price, and a premium monitor that you'll absolutely love having at your gaming battlestation. Importantly, it'll last for years while other monitors struggle to keep up.
We previously called the Acer Predator X27 the best 4K monitor for gaming, praising its high refresh rate, G-Sync capabilities for compatible Nvidia GeForce graphics cards and GPUs, and "brilliant and convincing 4K HDR graphics." It's also ridiculously bright, rated to hit 1,000 nits thanks to 384 individually-controlled LED zones. Compared to most monitors' 250 and 350 nits (which are technically below the minimum standard), the Predator blows them out of the (incredibly bright, crisply-rendered) water in terms of brightness.
