Alienware isn't the only brand where Dell is having some fun at Gamescom 2019 today; its own Dell gaming brand is getting some love, too.

At 32 inches, this curved monitor will take up a large chunk of your desk, with the curve meant to make games a little more immersive. Dell has equipped this monitor with a QHD (2560x1440) VA panel that can reach refresh rates of up to 165Hz.

Rounding out the feature set is support for AMD FreeSync 2. When used with an HDMI connection, FreeSync 2 can keep your framerate buttery smooth at up to 144Hz. If you opt for using the DisplayPort instead, you FreeSync 2 works at up to the monitor's maximum refresh rate of 165Hz.

The design of the Dell 32 Curved Gaming Monitor is unassuming, fitting in with the aesthetic of many of Dell's other monitors. Likewise, it features the company's usual cable-routing hole at the rear of the stand.
