The Acer GN246HLBbid may be one of the more pricey ones on this list, but if you’re a gamer who don’t want to spend a fortune on a display, then this is a good choice. Colour accuracy is unimpressive though, along with viewing angle performance. But then again, you will be sitting directly in front of your computer when playing games.

 2. ViewSonic VX2457-mhd

The ViewSonic VX2457-mhd is a budget monitor has no trouble hand handling fast-paced action-packed titles with relative ease, especially if your gaming rig comes with a graphics card with AMD FreeSync technology enabled. Colour accuracy is pretty pleasant, but as with most gaming displays dedicated for faster response time and high refresh rate, viewing angle is not that great. The relatively cheap price will make you want to consider it for your gaming setup though.
