Supply chain disruption thanks to social distancing and coronavirus means that’s still not exactly a great time for gaming monitor deals, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped looking for the best gaming monitors at the best prices. Good gaming monitor deals are still in reasonably short supply, but we’ve done our best to find all the top gaming monitor deals that are worth shouting about. Whether you’re looking for the best G-Sync monitor deals or the best cheap ultrawide monitor deals, here are the top gaming monitor deals of the week.

To help you get a great gaming monitor deal, there are a couple of things to think about. A monitor’s panel type, for instance, can often be a great indicator of how colour accurate it will be, with IPS being the most accurate, followed by VA and then TN. That said, there are still plenty of good TN panels out there that can rival the very best IPS screens, and they’re usually found on Nvidia G-Sync displays.

If your graphics card is regularly hitting 60fps, then you may also want to consider a monitor with a high refresh rate such as 144Hz, as this will help games feel much smoother. Nvidia graphics card owners can also benefit from getting a monitor with Nvidia G-Sync support, which will help cut down on stuttering and screen tear when playing at high refresh rates. But if you’d rather save some money, then you should opt for one of Nvidia’s certified G-Sync Compatible monitors. These are AMD FreeSync monitors that have been approved by Nvidia to give a good G-Sync-like experience. AMD graphics card owners, on the other hand, should stick to monitors with AMD FreeSync support.

While you’re here, be sure to check out our regularly updated round-ups on the week’s Graphics card deals and SSD deals, too.

While it’s not one we’ve tested ourselves, the listed specs make this 24in monitor a bit of a bargain. Sure, the bezel may be a bit chunky, but a 144Hz panel for under £150 is a pretty solid deal however you frame it.

Normally £400, this 4K IPS display is currently £50 cheaper than usual. Not a huge discount in the grand scheme of things, but it’s still a pretty great discount all the same for a gaming monitor of this size and calibre. It can even do a bit of HDR, too, thanks to its HDR10 support.

A bargain when we reviewed it at £273, this 28in 4K screen is hard to resist at £190, especially with its fast 1ms refresh rate. Of course, you have to make sacrifices to get a 4K panel this cheap, and for AOC’s monitor that comes in the form of weak viewing angles and so-so colour accuracy. But for under £200, it’s hard to say no to.

£20 more than a couple of weeks ago, but still the cheapest price around for this monitor, the AOC Agon AG273QX is currently my best gaming monitor pick for those after an excellent 1440p monitor. It has stunning colour accuracy, decent HDR and works equally well with Nvidia and AMD graphics cards alike. For more info, read our AOC AGON AG273QX review.

One of Nvidia’s official G-Sync Compatible monitors, the Asus VG278Q can currently be had for £40 off its usual price. While a 1920×1080 resolution on a 27in isn’t exactly ideal, this is still a great way to get a big gaming screen on the cheap.
