AMD's Radeon RX 6800 is a great GPU for gaming at 1440p. It may not be the best graphics card around, but you can still have an amazing gaming experience when pairing it up with an equally capable PC monitor. I've rounded up the best PC gaming monitors to use with the AMD Radeon 6800 XT to make the most out of 1440p gaming.
Best for Gaming
The LG UltraGear 27GL850-B is an incredible 1440p gaming monitor that offers high-end performance for a fair price, making it our top pick. There's no HDR, but the monitor has a stellar 144Hz refresh rate maximum and a fantastic 1ms response time.

The Dell Gaming Monitor S219DGF offers a great balance between price and performance, solidifying itself as a fantastic mid-range choice. It features a QHD 2560x1440 resolution and the color gamut and lighting depth are solid, although the lack of HDR means it won't be as excellent as other options. In terms of adjustment, you can tilt, swivel, and adjust the height. Additionally, the monitor has the best refresh rate out of every option on this list, coming in at 155Hz
This is an absurdly large monitor that fans of ultra-wide will love, though it doesn't have the best picture quality. Feast your eyes upon this 49-inch Samsung monitor, a curvaceous behemoth with a jaw-dropping 32:9 aspect ratio. It may be a stretched 1080p screen, but the refresh rate is an excellent 144Hz, and the monitor comes with both HDR support and AMD Free Sync 2 support.
BenQ ZOWIE RL2455S (opens in new tab)
People who want to get a solid monitor while only spending the bare minimum should opt for the 24-inch BenQ ZOWIE RL2455S. It's got a standard 1080p HD display and a 75Hz refresh rate, which is only slightly above the aging 60Hz standard. Also, while colors and lighting look good on it, there's no HDR support, and the other monitors on this list look a lot better. It does have a 1ms response time, however!
Choosing the right monitor for your GPU
The monitor choice for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 largely comes down to resolution. You'll want to choose 1080p for the best frame rates or 1440p for better quality. You could go with a 1440p screen and turn down the resolution of games for better frame rates, but won't look quite nearly as good. Unsure which resolution is best for you?
Our top recommendation for the AMD Radeon 6800 XT is the LG UltraGear 27GL850-B. This is one capable screen with an impressive 1440p resolution, a high 144Hz refresh rate, and a fantastic 1ms response time.
If you want to go all-out, the Samsung CHG90 is a great ultrawide monitor that can handle a little gaming on the side. It has a jaw-dropping 32:9 aspect ratio with a stretched 1080p screen, but the refresh rate is an excellent 144Hz, and the monitor comes with both HDR support and AMD Free Sync 2 support.
