Should you buy the Dell S-Series 27-inch QHD 165Hz; 16:9;?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed 710 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 Dell gaming monitor made our 2021 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always Dell 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. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.

This gaming monitor weighs 21.4 lbs - important to know if you’re taking it to live events or college.
