The deal given is no longer valid and we do not have a better one. However, we have found some similar deals
The display's specifications include a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440, a 165 Hz refresh rate, and a 4 ms response time. The Asus monitor uses an IPS panel. That's important because it means wide 178-degree viewing angles and a super color gamut. The only thing you exchange compared to a TN panel is a slightly slower response time, which you'll hardly ever notice.
The Asus ROG Swift uses Nvidia G-Sync technology. This is adaptive sync tech that you can use to reduce screen tearing during high octane action like while you're gmaing. It requires a Nvidia graphics card to use. Connect the card via a DisplayPort and you'll be able to maximize your refresh rate, too.
Asus has several eye care features built in, too. It helps you with longer gaming sessions thanks to the blue light filter and the flicker free back lighting. You'll feel a lot more relaxed in your eyes after spending a bunch of time in front of the screen. The monitor also comes with an Asus Rapid Replacement program that's good for three years.
We shared a similar deal on an Asus ROG Swift yesterday. That version is also on sale for $430 from Amazon, but it uses a TN panel instead of IPS. You trade off color accuracy and viewing angles for a much better response time. Personally, I'd say if you can afford the extra $50 go with IPS over TN.
