If you're thinking of upgrading your monitor during the Cyber Monday PC gaming deals but don't want to take the leap into 4K just yet, the Asus ROG Swift PG278QR is a great alternative. It's $429.99 on Newegg, saving you $90, but you can also shave off another $30 with the accompanying promo code, netting you this great gaming monitor for $399.99. 

The PG278QR is an upgrade on the PG278Q, which we named the best gaming monitor, and this version comes with a 2560x1440 WQHD display, a 165Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. It's got G-Sync support, too, along with two USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort and HDMI. 

While you'll need a decent GPU to take advantage of the high refresh rate at 1440p, the requirements aren't quite as steep as they would be if you threw even more cash at a 4K monitor, where even the best cards aren't going to get you a frame rate much higher than 60. Out of the box, however, it's 144Hz, so you'll need to overclock it for it to reach its full potential.

Asus ROG Swift PG278QR | 27" | 2560x1440 | 165Hz (overlocked) | $399.99 with code (save $120)
With the additional voucher code, this is a great Cyber Monday deal on a high-end G-Sync gaming monitor. View Deal
