Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals 2021: pixel perfect panels on offer

Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals
Cyber Monday Gaming Monitor deals

Black Friday is over but Cyber Monday is still rolling, and there are tons of gaming monitor deals still waiting to be picked. Some of the best on this list have been discounted even lower than they were over the weekend. And there's more than just monitors up for grabs—we've got a whole slate of other Cyber Monday deals to dig into, too.

There are still plenty of great deals on display to pick from, despite the relatively late hour: Ultrawide, 4k, high speed, or just flat-out cheap, whatever you're after, you'll likely find something to fit the bill here. Not sure where to aim your money? Have a look at our best gaming monitor guide for some ideas, or to get a better grasp on the technical side of things, have a look at our explainer of the different gaming monitor panel types.

Keep in mind that a big part of choosing a monitor is matching it up to your GPU: A 4K 120Hz monitor is a fabulous unit if your video card can handle those resolutions, but it won't do you much good if you can't get over 60 fps.

That said, it's better to plan for the future than to sell yourself (and your PC) short, and your monitor will probably outlive at least some of your PC parts— and you can always play at 1080p on a 4K monitor until you get the GPU of your dreams.

For the Nvidia GeForce GPU owners, we also recommend keeping an eye out for G-Sync or G-Sync compatible gaming monitors. While AMD Radeon users will be better served by a snazzy FreeSync screen.

Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals in the US

Asus ROG Strix XG279Q

ASUS Republic of Gamers STRIX XG279Q | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 170 Hz | $599.99 $399.99 at B&H Photo (save $200)
Not the lowest price we've seen on a 170Hz 1440p monitor during Cyber Monday, but a good deal on a quality monitor that you won't have to replace for a long time (as long as you don't mind the ROG "gamer" aesthetic).

Alienware AW3821DW

Alienware AW3821DW | 38-inch | 3840 x 1600 | IPS | 144Hz | 1ms | G-Sync | $1,949.99 $1,099.99 at Dell (save $850)
From the 'go big or go home' school of monitor design, this curved monster is for anyone that wants to hit that truly immersive gaming experience. At 3840x1600 it has the same horizontal resolution as a 4K panel, but it isn't quite as tall—it'll still punish your graphics card though. The 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, and VESA DisplayHDR 600 round out an impressive overall package. 

Asus ROG Strix XG279Q

Acer Predator X34 | 34-inch | 3440x1440 | IPS | 144 Hz | $1,049.99 $699.99 at Target (save $350)
A very good price on big, wide 21:9 IPS panel with a 1ms response time, two DisplayPort inputs, and 4 USB ports. It's refurbished, but "shows limited or no wear" and includes all original accessories and a 90-day warranty.

Cooler Master GM34-CW

Cooler Master GM34-CW | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $749 $629 at B&H Photo (save $120)
The impeccable color you get from this immense 34-inch screen is pretty nice, and the contrast isn't bad either. This is a 3440 x 1440p VA panel which is a good resolution for this size monitor. For gaming, you get a 144Hz refresh to make the most of high frame rates, and Freesync, to boot.

Samsung Odyssey G7 | 28-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $799.99

Samsung Odyssey G7 | 28-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $799.99 $649.99 at Best Buy (save $150)
Samsung's G7 is a popular screen, and that's no doubt thanks to its great panel quality and high refresh rate. It's definitely not the cheapest 4K monitor going, but for that extra cash, you get a great build quality and rapid speed, perfect for competitive gaming. It also supports both Nvidia and AMD variable refresh rate technologies and comes with a flattering IPS panel.

Gigabyte Aorus FV43U

Aorus FV43U | 43-inch | 4K | VA QLED | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $1,099.99 $849.99 at Newegg (save $250)
If you want to go bigger than your peers, then this 43-inch monitor is a good fit. You lose out on the quality IPS of the smaller screen, but instead, you get a VA with Quantum Dot tech. Note this is an 'open box' discount, so it's worth checking you're happy with that before buying.

BenQ EL2870U

BenQ EL287OU | 28-inch | 4K | TN | 60Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $299.99 $249.99 at Amazon (save $50)
There are some really good high-end 4K gaming monitors out there, but they cost a lot more than this. If you're in the market for a cheap 4K panel, then this BenQ is definitely worth considering. It's only a TN panel capped at 60Hz, but the 1ms response time does help keep it feeling responsive, as does support for FreeSync. 

Gigabyte Aorus FI32U

Aorus FI32U | 32-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $999.99 $899.99 at Newegg (save $100)
4K is best viewed above 32-inches, and you don't really want to forgo on picture quality when you're paying for extra pixels. That's why this 32-inch, IPS is a great fit for gaming, helped along massively by a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Now all you need is a great graphics card to feed it with a constant flow of frames.

$479.00

Asus TUF Gaming VG35VQ | 35" | 21:9 curved screen | 100 Hz | 1ms response time | FreeSync | $479.00 $444.00 at BHPhotoVideo (save $35)
This doesn't look like a huge saving but for whatever reason this retailer's starting point is much lower than the competition: this same screen has a list price of $570 to $613 elsewhere. The screen size and curvature make this something of a luxury gaming monitor.

$699.99

Samsung Odyssey G7 | 26.9-inch | 1440p | 240Hz | 1ms | G-Sync | $699.99 $499.99 at B&H (save $200)
Another option on the Samsung Odyssey G7 if you don't want to pay for 4K is to drop down to 1440p and save a little extra money. It does pop you up to 240Hz at the same time, and are you really going to miss the 1.1-inch reduction in size? Well, only you can answer that.

Gigabyte M27Q 27-inch 170 Hz

Gigabyte M27Q | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 170Hz | 0.5ms | FreeSync | $359.99 $279.99 at Newegg (save $80)
Flick through the specifications of this gaming monitor and you'll be surprised to see how much is on offer at this price: 170Hz, FreeSync Premium, IPS panel, 0.5ms response time. All good stuff, and there are tons of really positive reviews for this one online, including this one from our sister site Tom's Hardware, which makes it look like quite the deal. 

$1,109.99

Alienware AW2721D | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 240Hz | 1ms | G-Sync | $1,109.99 $749.99 at Dell (save $310)
This Alienware monitor hits that 1440p sweet spot at an impressive 240Hz refresh rate and a 1ms (GtG) response time. This thing is fast. And at 450 cd/m2 it's pretty bright too. This would normally set you back $1,110, but right now you can pick it up for just under $800. That's a quality saving on a quality screen. 

MSI GF65

Gigabyte M32Q | 32-inch | 1440p | IPS | 165Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $499.99 $359.99 at Newegg (save $140)
The M32Q is a larger version of one of our favorite gaming monitors, the 27-inch Gigabyte G27Q.

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | 4ms | G-Sync | $469.99

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | 4ms | G-Sync | $469.99 $399.99 at Amazon (save $70)
For Acer's flagship monitor this is a great deal. We hold a special place in our hearts for the Predator. The IPS panel may not have the best colors and contrast around, but it's built for performance. With a 4ms response time and an overclockable 144Hz refresh, you'll be flying in competitive games.

MSI Optix MAG321CQR | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $479.99

MSI Optix MAG321CQR | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $479.99 $259.99 at Amazon (save $220)
This is a huge saving on a quality 1440p VA panel that can make for some silky smooth refresh rates. The 1800R curve is subtle enough to add to the immersive experience without getting in the way too. It's FreeSync, and G-Sync compatible too.

Dell S3222DGM | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | 2ms | FreeSync | $529.99

Dell S3222DGM | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | 2ms | FreeSync | $529.99 $329.99 at Dell (save $200)
Coming in with a massive saving, this QHD, curved Dell gaming monitor boasts AMD FreeSync, as well as 2ms grey-to-grey response and a very tasty 165Hz refresh rate. At $200 off RRP, it's a bit of a steal.

ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ

Asus TUF Gaming VG27WQ1B | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | 4ms | FreeSync | $329.99 $299.99 after rebate at Newegg (save $30)
With a curved panel and a rather nice 165Hz refresh, not to mention the 1ms response time, this Asus TUF gaming monitor is not to be sniffed at. It's one of our favorite monitors and the model is only a couple of years old. Not a bad buy. It also has an available $30 rebate bringing the price down to $239.99.

Acer XG270HU

Acer XG270HU | 27-inch | 1440p | TN | 144Hz | 1ms | FreeSync | $349.99 $289.99 at Newegg (save $60)
You may be able to get IPS and VA panels for this sort of cash, but there's still something to be said for this speedy TN screen for gaming. High-refresh rates and 1ms response times make it a punchy offering, and viewed straight on the colors are decent. It's got a tiny bezels on the top and sides for multi-screen setups, and also supports AMD FreeSync for smooth gaming.

Asus ROG Swift PG259QN

Asus ROG Swift PG259QN | 24.5-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 1ms | G-Sync | $699.99 $479.00 at Amazon (save $219)
This 1080p gaming monitor offers a ridiculously fast refresh rate, and so will need one of the newer G-Sync compatible graphics cards to make the most of it. ROG Swift's IPS panels are great, though, offering deep, clear colours while still providing good response times. It's a little on the small size, but if you're short of space, this is worth your consideration.

Dell Alienware AW2521H | 360Hz | 24.5-inch | 1080p | IPS | 1ms | G-Sync | $909.99

Dell Alienware AW2521H | 360Hz | 24.5-inch | 1080p | IPS | 1ms | G-Sync | $909.99 $379.99 at Dell (Save $530)
This high refresh rate, low response gaming monitor may not be the highest resolution, but man does it pack a punch. Plus, it's a little bigger than average at 24.5 inches and comes with Nvidia G-Sync and Reflex Latency Analyser. At under half its normal price, it's certainly worth a look.

AOC C32G2ZE

AOC C32G2ZE | 32-inch | 1080p | VA | 240Hz | 0.5ms | FreeSync | $329.99 $279.99 at Amazon (save $50)
32 inches may make 1080p seem a tad stretched, but this is still a pretty good deal on a vast, curved gaming monitor—that's even without the ridiculous 0.5ms response, and 240Hz refresh rate. Here you're getting excellent contrast, accurate color, and AMD FreeSync to help reduce screen tear.

Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor: AW2521HF

Alienware AW2521HF | 25-inch| 1080p | IPS | 240Hz | 1ms | Adaptive Sync | $380 $279 at Gamestop (save $101)

Sceptre E275B-FPT165 | 27-inch | 1080p | IPS | 165Hz
| 1ms | FreeSync |
$209.98 $199.97 at Amazon (save $10.01)
It's not the highest resolution monitor, but a nice 165Hz refresh and 1ms response time are not to be sniffed at for that price. It's more built for speed than image fidelity. Plus, you're looking at a nice 27 inch IPS panel, so there's that.

This quality ultrawide panel is available at a very tempting price right now. It's pitched pretty much perfectly at us PC gamers: 3440 x 1440 at 34-inches makes for an immersive experience, especially given the screen's subtle curve, throw in the 144Hz refresh rate and great contrast ratio, and there's a lot to love here.

Ultrawide monitors are great for gaming and they're not bad for working on either. That this panel is also capable of hitting a refresh rate of 165Hz is nothing to be sniffed at either—in fact, it sits at the top of our best high-refresh gaming monitor guide. It's a VA panel, so you get great contrast, and it's curved for an even more immersive gaming experience too.

LG 27GN800-B | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | £519.97 £279.97 at Laptops Direct (save £240)
Given the name, Laptops Direct is probably not your first port of call for monitor deals, but this 27-inch LG is a great price right now. Even if the 'saving' looks a trifle generous compared to the level it's been retailing for... But with a 144Hz refresh rate, a genuine LG IPS panel, and a 1ms response time, this will make for a great gaming monitor. The only downside here is that the stand doesn't offer a lot of adjustment.

LG 27GL850-B

LG 27GN850 | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | 1ms | G-Sync | £319.99 £299.99 at Amazon (save £20)

With a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms grey-to-grey response, it's got your back in gaming. And G-Sync compatibility can mean less screen tear for those packing an Nvidia GeForce GPU as well. It's got a slightly better panel and a much better stand than the often cheaper LG 27GN800 too.

There are some really good high-end 4K gaming monitors out there, but they tend to cost a lot, lot more than this. If you're in the market for a cheap 4K panel, then this BenQ is definitely worth considering. It's only a TN panel capped at 60Hz, but the 1ms response time does help keep it feeling responsive, as does support for FreeSync. This is a decent saving as well.
