It's definitely time to upgrade your monitor. Go for the Asus ROG Swift PG278QR 27-inch 1440p 165Hz G-Sync gaming monitor while it's down to just $429.99 on Amazon. That's a huge direct price drop considering it normally sells for around $520, and it was going for around $580 at the beginning of the year. This price is even better than last year's Black Friday sale and will probably be as low as it goes this year, too.

The monitor has a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 1 ms response time, and it can be overclocked to a refresh rate of 165 Hz. Connectivity options include a DisplayPort, HDMI, and two USB 3.0 ports. It even has a Kensington lock if you need some extra security, like if you're using this in a public space or an office. It does use a TN panel, which is important because that's where you get the super fast response times. However, TN panels notoriously don't have the same color accuracy as an IPS screen.
The built-in Nvidia G-Sync tech works with your Nvidia graphics card to ensure smooth gameplay. It eliminates screen tearing and stuttering, especially during high-octane action like video games or movies. Connect your card to the monitor through DisplayPort to not only take advantage of this technology but also get the highest possible refresh rate (up to 165 like mentioned before).
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.
Use the stand to find the perfect viewing angle. It can tilt, pivot, swivel, and even adjust in ehight based on your comfort zone.
