Unfortunately, this is a temporary deal that's part of Newegg's Shell Shocker deals, so you'll want to act fast if you're interested.

This monitor has 1080p resolution, a 1ms response time, and a refresh rate that can be overclocked up to 180Hz. It also uses Nvidia's G-Sync tech to reduce screen tearing. The connectivity options include DisplayPort, HDMI, and USB 3.0 ports.

If you're looking to upgrade your gaming rig and don't have a whole lot of budget to work with, this is a great option. The Asus ROG Swift PG248Q is loaded with excellent features. The specifications include a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, a super fast 1ms response time, and a refresh rate that can be overclocked to 180 Hz. That's big given the standard for non-gaming monitors is 60Hz and most gamers just want to reach 144Hz. Getting it up to 180Hz just gives you that much more of an advantage.

The connectivity options are great, too. Not only do you have a DisplayPort, but you also have HDMI and a USB hub with two USB 3.0 ports, which is great if you need to plug in a few extra accessories. The monitor also works with Nvidia's G-Sync technology. This, combined with a Nvidia graphics card, will help reduce screen tearing while playing games.

Asus also has a great program with the 3-year Rapid Replacement. Protect your eyes with Eye Care technology, and fully adjust the stand for your monitor to find the perfect angle. Or you can just mount it on a wall or arm mount thanks to the VESA 100 x 100mm standard.
