If you're looking to enhance your PC gaming setup, this AOC 27-inch 16:9 Curved FreeSync LCD Monitor (C27G1) (opens in new tab) is worth a look. Right now it's on sale for $189.99 at B&H, marking one of its best deals in history. That saves you $40 off its usual price at retailers such as Amazon (opens in new tab), and B&H even includes free expedited shipping with its purchase. There is a slight shipping delay as this item is back-ordered, so you'll want to take that into account as well when placing your order.

The specs for this screen are impressive. It's got a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, an 1800R curved VA panel, a 144 Hz refresh rate, a 1 ms response time, and AMD's FreeSync. The frameless design helps immerse you and it comes with a 3-year warranty.

If you really want to game and you don't have $400 to fork over for a better screen, this is about as good as you can get on a budget. The 27-inch display has 1080p resolution, 144Hz refresh rates, and a 1ms response time. Plus it does that with a VA panel where most budget monitors use TN, which lacks color accuracy and viewing angles. The VA panel has 178-degree viewing angles so it's great for non-gaming media-watching activities, too. It's also designed with three frameless sides, which is not only good for immersion but also ideal if you plan on buying more than one monitor and setting them up next to each other.

The monitor also uses AMD FreeSync technology, which can help reduce screen tearing and give you a smooth gaming experience. While the monitor has a DisplayPort, two HDMI ports, and a VGA input, you can use the HDMI or DisplayPort connections to make use of FreeSync and get 144Hz in your refresh rate. Other features include Flicker Free and Low Blue Mode to help reduce eye fatigue over long gaming sessions.

The stand is height adjustable, but you can also mount it on a wall or arm with the VESA mounting standard. AOC covers the monitor with a three-year zero bright dot and three-year advance replacement warranty. AOC also has a one-time one-year accidental damage warranty. That coverage is some of the best around.
