Top 10 Gaming Monitors 2019
1. The ASUS ROG Swift PG297Q
Best gaming monitor fitted with G Sync
The ASUS ROG Swift is the ultimate gaming monitor you can currently buy. Previously players had to decide to go with higher picture quality or a faster refresh rate. With the Swift you can actually have both a great picture and a fast refresh rate. It gives you a 144hz refresh rate on a 27 inch monitor and the picture quality is better than any you would see on ac 4K screen. If you can use G Sync then buy this monitor as it is worth each and every cent.
2. The Acer Predator X27
Best gaming monitor for HDR
The Predator X27 does gives you fantastic clear 4K picture and a refresh rate of 144hz, that is the good news. Yet you may find the price tag of around $2,000 is the bad news.
