Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always HP deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there's a massive range to choose from.

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 average monitor is 23.8 inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.
