TOP 10 Gaming Monitors at PB Tech

Posted in Articles on 11/7/2017 (updated on 07/1/2020)

Today we’re taking a quick look at the fastest Gaming Monitors from Asus, LG, Philips, AOCBenQ ZowieSamsung, Titan Army and Acer!

A quick note for those who are new to ultra-fast displays and why we want them; the HZ rate is basically a number of times your monitor can update/redraw the image on the screen - with 144Hz being able to do this up to 144 times per second! With these higher frame rates, all those missing images on the screen come together in a beautiful smooth motion that makes it much easier to target opponents - of course, our PC will need to be able to push out that many frames but that’s another topic covered in How to Choose the BEST Gaming Monitor for your Gaming PC - so back to the subject at hand!

We feel the need, the need for SPEED!
