The LG 27GL83A-B 27-inch gaming monitor has dropped to $279.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab). This is a monitor that has sold for as high as $380 and has been selling for around $370 since February, the last time we saw it go this low. The drop to $280 is one we have only seen in the new year, and it usually does not last long. The same monitor is going for $350 or more at other retailers like Best Buy (opens in new tab), so take advantage of Amazon's great deal while it lasts.

You get 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 1ms response time despite the amazing color of the IPS panel, and a 144Hz refresh rate. The connectivity includes DisplayPort and HDMI. Plus it is wall and arm mountable so you can remove it from the stand.

This is my personal recommendation for the best "bang for your buck" gaming monitor. You get all the stats a gamer should love, including a 144Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and 1440p pixel resolution. Plus it uses an IPS panel while still getting that response time, which means you get great viewing angles and color accuracy.

While the monitor has native AMD FreeSync, it is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible. Just connect via DisplayPort to use the G-Sync, which is what you'll need to use to get up to 144Hz refresh rate anyway. It works great.

The monitor has a very adjustable stand, but it also uses the VESA 100 x 100mm standard. That means you can just attach it to a wall or arm mount instead and forego the stand altogether. With the virtually borderless design, these monitors look good stacked next to each other. I use this mounting arm (opens in new tab) with two of the screens for my personal build.
