PCGameBenchmark has reviewed 112 models to find the best gaming monitor available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming monitors available to buy right now - this BenQ gaming monitor made our 2020 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always BenQ 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.

The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed - not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. The display size of this large monitor is 28 inches. 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 3840 x 2160 pixels, and the response time is 1 ms..

This gaming monitor weighs 14 lbs - important to know if you’re taking it to live events or college.
