If you want to upgrade your monitor, today is your lucky day. Newegg sells a 27-inch Acer 1440p high refresh gaming monitor for $230. That’s $140 off the MSRP and a good retail price for this display.
The Acer XG270HU has a 144Hz refresh rate to blast past those 60 frames per second, making for smoother images. It also shuffles FreeSync to keep performance consistent between the graphics card and the monitor. This means greatly reduced moments of screen tearing and stuttering.
Acer designed this monitor with an “edge-to-edge frameless design,” making it a good choice for a multi-monitor gaming setup. It also has built-in speakers and for connections you have HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D. To use FreeSync, you have to choose between DisplayPort and HDMI – both support up to the maximum frame rate. If you have an Nvidia graphics card, this monitor is G-Sync compatible, so no one will be left out of the variable refresh rate party.
All in all, this is a nice monitor for a good price. You just have to really like red accents.
