Picking up the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and building a gaming rig around the GPU is one thing, but choosing a monitor to go along with it is another. Since it's not the best graphic card around, you won't require the best PC gaming monitors, but we rounded up some of our favorites to help you make the right decision.



Best Budget

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 refresh rate of 75Hz, which is only slightly above the aging standard of 60Hz. 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

Picking the best monitor for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 largely comes down to it being 1080p for high refresh rate gaming or 1440p for better quality. 4K isn't strictly out of the question, but this card will start to struggle with more demanding titles. And don't even try to enable ray tracing and other features. Unsure which resolution is best for you? We got you covered there.

Our favorite gaming monitor right now is the LG UltraGear 27GL850-B. It's a capable 1440p gaming monitor that offers high-end performance for a fair price with a 144Hz refresh rate maximum 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.
