In this Best Gaming Monitor 2023 Buying Guide, we review what you need to know to find the best gaming monitor 2023 for pc gaming, PS5, or Xbox Series X / S. We explain resolution, refresh rate, response time, panel type, and more. Most gaming monitors use a 144hz or greater refresh rate, which roughly equals 144 FPS. There are diminishing returns for refresh rates above 165 Hz and ultra high refresh rates are mostly for competitive shooters where every frame makes difference. The best gaming monitor 2023 will also have good response time and low input lag. The best gaming monitor 2023 depends on resolution and budget: 1080p gaming monitors remain very popular for both budget and high end competitive shooter audiences (who want maximum refresh rates), but 1440p gaming monitors are now mainstream. Some of the best gaming monitors are 1440p, and we review the best gaming monitor for any resolution. If you want the best 4k gaming monitor, and particularly the best 4K 144hz gaming monitor (best 4K 120hz gaming monitor for console), then there are great options in 2023.

Our recommendations include best budget gaming monitor, best 1080p gaming monitor, best 1440p gaming monitor, best ultrawide gaming monitor, best super ultrawide gaming monitor, best budget 4k gaming monitor and best 4K 144hz gaming monitor.

    This is great. I am on the market of looking for a second monitor. My bets are Asus TUF VG24Q1A or the LG 24GN600-B. I'm good with 1080p however if budget allows, I'll go with 1440p. I'll take note on you recommendation. Thanks Jason, your the man 👋👋👋

  3. Andre

    You forgot the Samsung Odyssey G70A, flat IPS 4K 144hz, my main monitor and it is amazing, really recommend it as it goes on sale often!

  4. Moisses Estrada

  5. FiftiethFiend

    I picked up a the newer Samsung Odyssey G5 for 230USD and its been pretty good definitely needs some color tuning out of the box but if you're willing to take the time to tune it, its very good

  6. Yazan Najjar

  10. Darachy

    What about MSI Optix G273QF – 27" WQHD IPS 165 Hz vs MAG274QRF-QD ? Is it a huge diference or the G273QF is ok ?

  11. magtral

    Thank you for your work, after seeing your video now my cousin can decide himself which direction to go for his build.

  12. alexandroid

    How come there are no 32" OLED monitors? Are OLED pixels too big for them at this time or something?

  13. StrOut

    I have Alienware AW2723DF, you can oc to 280hz.

  14. Eric Soto

    Any recommendations for upgrade from a gtx 1080 currently have i7-7000k?

  15. fausto198

    Cheers Jason, still after a 32inch 1440p monitor so will watch your recommendations. Not sure if I want flat or curved though. I have a curved Tv in the house which fine just not sure if I want it for a gaming monitor.

  16. Petrocomical

    Surprised the GIGABYTE M27F A didn't make the cut for 1080P they have been running them for 179.99 all month. Great content love your videos!

  17. MrBlacksight

    Dude's confusing fps with refresh rate. Not the same thing

  18. taiga

    Hi Jason! Do you think an RTX 3080 is overkill for 1080p gaming?

  19. Anthony

  20. Christoffer Hoff

    got the C2 48" and I tell you it's the greatest form of gaming hardware I've ever owned, takes a hefty GPU to run it tho!
