Here’s a list of gaming monitors offering the best features and specs for high-intensive gaming.

When we talk about gaming monitors, the most important factors to consider are refresh rate and response time. Depending on your hardware and the type of games you like to play, pick whatever resolution fits you the best, be it 1080p, 1440p or 2160p. Another aspect of consideration is the size, whether you should go for a standard aspect ratio or an ultrawide monitor. Here are some of the best gaming monitors to help you make a purchase:

1.ASUS VG258QR

Touted as an Esports gaming monitor, the VG258QR has a refresh rate of up to 165Hz, a response time of 0.5 milliseconds and G-Sync certification.

The monitor gets sufficiently bright with 350 nits of peak brightness and has support for AMD FreeSync. The XG270HU is a great monitor for high-resolution gaming.
