For years, devices have been introduced to try and outperform the conventional PC. However, nothing seems to come close. Laptops don’t carry the required performance to compete with a gaming PC, unless you’re planning on paying thousands of pounds.
Tablets are great for writing emails, or general browsing, but you can’t game on them. Not serious games anyway.
We don’t think the PC will ever lose it’s crown, even to the latest Games Consoles which are created.
Today, we are looking at our favourite 5 gaming monitors for 2020; the perfect companion for a gaming PC.
We really like the ASUS TUF VG27AQ. It’s a higher end monitor, with an impressive 1440p base.
It has next to zero input lag, which will be absolutely vital for your online gaming needs. Call of Duty, Fifa or Fortnite will all require an input lag as low as possible.
The refresh rate is really impressive, which means that the screen will offer smooth visuals, especially in fast-paced games.
This one will bring some controversy. Alienware always carries a certain seal of approval, but whilst we do like this monitor, we can only think how much better this would be… if it was Ultra HD.
That’s right, the AW2720HF is only a 1080P model, which could well be a deal-breaker in 2020 and beyond unfortunately.
This monitor has all the performance that you would expect of Dell/Alienware, an impressive colour spectrum & fantastic viewing angles.
- Tailored for E-Sports
- HDR Ready
- 1MS Response Time
- Cheaper Alternatives on the Market
MSI have developed this monitor with a specific target audience; anyone who doesn’t like a curved screen. It’s quite brave of MSI, with every other manufacturer opting for the modern looking curved screens.
They’ve ensured this is 1440p, with just 4ms of input lag at 165hz. Exceptional performance.
We don’t need curved screens anyway, right?
- High Refresh Rate
- Adjustable Stand
- Not the Cheapest Monitor Around
AW5520QF – The Money is No Object Option
If money was no option, I am sure we would all be looking at the Alienware 5520QF with interest.
Unfortunately, there’s only a handful of people that would be able to afford this product. At £2,500, it’s certainly not a cheap monitor. At 55″, it’s probably not just a monitor at all.
We’ve included some of our favourite gaming monitors for 2020, although we’ve partially disregarded budgets completely. Stay tuned for our next post, which will be focusing on the Best Monitors under £250!
