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.
LG UltraGear 27GL850-B
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.
Dell Gaming Monitor S219DGF
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, the color gamut, and lighting depth are pretty good, although the lack of HDR means that it won't be as excellent as the previous 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.
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 (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab) 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.
