Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always Alienware deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there's a massive range to choose from. High quality graphics are super important when you’re playing and the gaming monitors sometimes sold with PCs are pretty rubbish. You may also want to use a monitor alongside a gaming laptop.

Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.

When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the refresh rate is 240 Hz, and the response time is 1 ms. This is a 1080p Alienware monitor and can run at 240 Hz.

This gaming monitor weighs 7.81 lbs - important to know if you’re taking it to live events or college. The color of this monitor is Dark Grey- Dark Side of the Moon.
