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. The display size of this large monitor is 27 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 2560 x 1440 pixels, the refresh rate is 155 Hz, and the response time is 1 ms. This is a 1440p Dell monitor and can run at 155 Hz.

This gaming monitor weighs 13.34 lbs - important to know if you’re taking it to live events or college. The color of this monitor is Black.
