The ROG Swift series is one of our favorite gaming monitor lines, so we took note when we saw this Best Buy holiday deal for a 1080p Swift monitor with an 180Hz refresh rate for $250. It’s the right choice if you don’t have the space for a large screen, or the hardware to bump up the resolution to 1440p, but still want the performance of a premium gaming monitor.
This feature-packed monitor usually retails around $400, which is a bit of a steep price point for just a 24-inch 1080p display. Then again, it has all the bells and whistles of the Swift series, such as all the Gameplus features like on-screen crosshairs and an FPS counter, and the 180Hz refresh rate is only outdone by 240Hz displays right now.
At $250, the Swift has become a viable option if you’re serious about your competitive games. The 1ms response time is part of the reason the ROG line shows up at fighting game and shooter tournaments, where a millisecond could mean a win or loss. The ROG Swift is also G-Sync compatible, which means its refresh rate matches your game's framerate when using an Nvidia card, eliminating screen tearing.
