As graphics cards have become more powerful, gaming monitors have made great strides, and even lesser-known manufacturers have gotten into gaming. So, for example, in today’s gaming monitor offerings, we have an offer not only from Acer but also from Nixeus, a company that is not as well known and yet offers a very good specified device.

Acer XF Series — $190, has been $250

The first monitor on the block is the Acer XF series, and for just $190, it’s not too bad. This TN monitor has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 144Hz, both of which provide an excellent experience for those who like to play FPS games, even if you have a budget PC among our PC deals from game. Of course, the best part is that it comes with G-Sync, which is a pretty big steal for the price when that alone often adds an extra $100 to the price. You also get the 1ms response time, which no monitor should be without these days if we’re being honest.

Nixeus EDG—$200, has been $380

The second screen we offer is from a lesser-known company, but that usually means you can get better specs for almost the same price. In fact, for just the extra $10 difference, the EDG has a 2560 x 1440 resolution and it even has an IPS panel rather than a TN, which makes it look better. Sure, you lose G-sync, and that might be part of why the price is lower, but you still get Freesync, so it’s not too bad if you’re using an AMD GPU. Additionally, while the refresh rate is 144Hz, the response time is just over 4ms – still below the industry-accepted maximum of 10ms. Even so, some esports pros say they can feel a difference, so if you think you want to go that route in the future, it might be best to go with the monitor first. Otherwise, the EDG is probably the best choice.

Of course, once you’ve bought your monitor, you’ll probably need a few other things for your PC too, so check out some of our other Newegg deals and get them shipped together.
