The Dell S2716DGR 27-inch 1440p G-Sync monitor is down to $299.99 at Best Buy. You can also find this price at Best Buy's official eBay store (opens in new tab). It is one of the best prices we've ever seen for this monitor, and right now Best Buy is the only place you can find it. The monitor is already such good value even Dell's President's Day sale didn't discount it because it's $550 at Dell (opens in new tab).

This screen is from 2016, but it has everything you need. G-Sync, 1440p resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and a fast 1ms response time. It even includes a USB hub, HDMI, DisplayPort, and 350 nits of brightness. Comes with 3-year warranty.

The "2716" in the model number S2716DGR indicates a 27-inch screen from 2016. It's still a fantastic screen so that's not really a big deal, but if you're more interested in something current you can get the Dell S2719DGF. It's down to its lowest price ever at $275 thanks to Dell's President's Day sale and an Amazon price match. The major difference between the two monitors is the S2719 has FreeSync, but the S2716 has native G-Sync. Even with FreeSync, it is G-Sync compatible, but you lose features not having native G-Sync (with the compromise being a much less expensive price). If you use Nvidia graphics cards, having native G-Sync may be more important to you, and today's deal is one of the best values in gaming for that.

The screen uses a TN panel because these offer the fastest response times. They sacrifice the viewing angles of an IPS panel and the contrast ratio of VA, but if what you're interested in is competitive gaming, this is the way to go. You should be buying this because of the affordable access to Nvidia's G-Sync technology, so gaming should definitely be a priority for you.

The specifications include a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. It also has 350 nits of brightness. The connectivity options include HDMI, a DisplayPort, and a USB hub with two USB-A ports. The screen also has 100x100mm VESA wall mounting. If you want to get the highest refresh rate and make use of the adaptive sync technology, you'll want to connect your graphics card to the monitor via DisplayPort.

It's covered by a 3-year warranty from Dell.
