The most pixel poppinest in G-Syncronism
Finding the ideal monitor to suit both your requirements and your budget is no easy task, and adding to that difficulty is finding one that's compatible with G-Sync and FreeSync. Choosing a monitor with these features enabled allows you to take advantage of a great deal of Nvidia's screen tech without the premium price tag. The main benefit of a G-Sync enabled monitor is that it allows you to pick up an AMD or Nvidia graphics card to get the best frame rates, lowest input lag, and the crispest pictures available. Nvidia's website lists all models of G-Sync enabled monitors, but before beginning your search why not start here for our pick of the best FreeSync and GSync monitors available right now.
1. AOC G2590FX
At the top of our list is a hugely affordable entry model to obtaining high frame rates while gaming, with a screen that's almost bezel-free. Although its a TN panel meaning a loss of viewing angle, it can provide a rapid response time of 1ms and is accompanied by a 144HZ refresh rate. This screen measures a decent 25 inches and it'll match the frame rates of your graphics card without even breaking a sweat, meaning no input lag and no jagged edges to worry about, which is down to it being GSync compatible.
2. ASUS VG27AQ
Next up, we have the VG27AQ, which could fit a variety of other best monitor lists, not just for GSync compatibility. Regardless of whether you're a console or PC player, this IPS panel fits the bill perfectly, and being able to turn its hand to anything would make sure it compliments a dual-monitor setup too. The only issue we found with this monitor is it occasionally gives unnecessary sheen and haze, which is very minimal at most. Everything else this 27-inch display makes this one of the best available GSync/FreeSync options available.
3. Alienware AW2720HF
For those who are looking for a GSync compatible monitor around the $400 range, this 27-inch monitor from Alienware is a winner. The exterior fits the stylish designs we've come to expect from the brand, and inside is a beast ready to be unleashed. With a rapid 1ms response time, a 240HZ refresh rate, and a 1080p IPS panel, this is the perfect all-rounder for any gamer. The only feature that could make this better is if we had a 1440p resolution, although it'd certainly push the price bracket up.
4. Acer Nitro XV273K
The price of Acer's 4K monitor is a little higher than we'd like but not less than we'd expect. Under the hood of this monitor is a stunning 4K HDR IPS panel oozing a 1ms response time and a 144HZ refresh rate, its also GSync compatible, which ticks all the right boxes. This screen offers one of the most significant resolutions on a 27-inch screen, which doesn't make it easy for such high refresh rates and response times. Still, as a manufacturer of high-end gaming monitors, Acer has everything covered.
5. Samsung C27RG5
Some might argue that this is the most stunning curved screen available in the Fressync and G-Sync compatible range. If a curved screen is what you're looking for, this is a worthy contender from a well-known brand. A lightning-fast 240HZ refresh rate and a 4ms response time come bundled with this 27-inch screen. Combine that with a 1080p 1500R panel, and you'll benefit from some of the most visually-pleasing imagery available on a gaming monitor.
