The Alienware 25 AW2518HF 25-inch 1080p 240Hz LED FreeSync monitor (opens in new tab) has dropped to $265.99 at Dell. That's a huge discount compared to the price at Amazon (opens in new tab). The screen regularly sells for around that $330 price, and we have only seen it go this low once before. Considering the G-Sync version goes for $430 even on Amazon (opens in new tab), and the FreeSync version now works with G-Sync anyway, this is a worthy deal.

Would you like a Hertz Donut? Pow! Hurts, don't it?
The Alienware 25 uses a TN panel because these offer the fastest response times. They sacrifice the viewing angles of an IPS panel and the contrast ratio of VA, but if what you're interested in is competitive gaming, this is the way to go. It has a response time under 1ms and refresh rate of 240Hz. It also has AMD's FreeSync technology, although it is a bit disappointing the pixel resolution is only 1080p. This would be the perfect monitor in 4K. On Amazon, users give it 4.4 stars based on 271 reviews (opens in new tab).
