Time to upgrade your screens. The Acer Nitro VG240Y 23.8-inch 1080p gaming monitor is down to $181.99 on Amazon. That's a drop from its regular $200 street price and one of the best prices we've seen.
If you're interested in gaming, don't overlook the need for a great monitor. Pay attention to things like refresh rate and adaptive sync technology. Trust me, once you go 144 Hz, you'll never look back. Every monitor from then until the rest of your life will need it. You'll also want to make sure you have a DisplayPort on both your monitor and your graphics card to take the most advantage of those features.
The Acer Nitro has a 23.8-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It also has a 1 ms response time, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and AMD's FreeSync technology. FreeSync pairs with your AMD graphics card to reduce screen tearing during particularly fast action, like in a shooter. The screen uses a Zero Frame design. That's great for immersion, and that also makes these displays a good choice for anyone running more than one of them side-by-side. The small bezel on the sides means they'll fit together and give you a beautiful looking battlestation.
Connectivity options on the back include a DisplayPort and two HDMI ports. Plus, the monitor comes with an HDMI cable. Of course, if you want to use FreeSync and get that 144 Hz refresh rate you'll want to connect your graphics card to the monitor via the DisplayPort, so grab a cable from AmazonBasics if you don't have it already.
Other features built into this monitor include Flicker-less tech, low dimming, and ComfyView. These are all Acer features designed to give you a better viewing experience, whether you're playing the latest games or just watching a movie.
