Best Gaming Monitor Deals for June 2022
When making a purchase decision, the first thing to consider available space. Whether you’re putting your monitor on a desk or attaching it to a wall, most of us like to have at least a 24- to 30-inch screen. Though if you’ve got lots of documents you’re working on at once or doing some detailed graphical work, a wider or even a curved-screen monitor is worth looking into.
Resolution is a more important decision when it comes to cost: 1080p is good enough for basic office work on a moderate-sized screen (about 24-30 inches), though you’ll notice the difference if you step up to 1440p. Gamers will probably want to splurge on a 4K monitor if their graphics cards can handle the work. You’ll also want to pay attention to refresh rate: 75Hz is the standard for office work but gaming monitors should look at options starting at 144Hz.

LG C1 Series OLED 4K 120Hz HDMI 2.1 Smart TV
Are you curious why this PCMag Editors’ Choice TV is mentioned as a gaming monitor pick? Its 120Hz native refresh OLED panel offers up to 4K resolution and AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync support. If you have a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X console, the HDMI 2.1 ports ensure that you can run up to 4K resolution with up to 120Hz refresh support on select games. With all OLED panels there is always risk with burn-in, but if your content does not have any static bars or text, it should not be a problem. For that reason, we do not recommend using this monitor as a work computer since menu bars are at risk for burn-in. Overall, if you want a hybrid between gaming monitor and TV, this would be a solid option.
