5 Monitors to get for your Gaming/Office Setup!

I've been around my fair share of computers lately, over quarantine I built my first PC! So I know finding the right monitor for your work or play can be somewhat of a chore. During my research on Amazon, Best Buy, New Egg, etc., I found a few monitors that I am a fan of and will recommend to you. Below are 5 you can check out.


SCEPTRE's 24" Curved LED Gaming Monitor

This Sceptre monitor is one I would strongly recommend. Curved screens makes for a streamline feel and a more immersive feel when gaming or working. This great monitor comes in at $129.99 on Amazon right now, which is a steal, due to its 31.7% decrease in price from $190.99 about a month ago. The product is rated a 4.5 out of 5 stars and with the price being so low a dual monitor setup seems possible.

HP VH240a 23.8" Office Monitor

Although, the odd name, this Monitor caught my eye the other day. Unlike the Spectre above this one includes built in speakers which to me evens the playing field between the two. Hp has never let me down when it comes to quality and performance, especially since this monitor rotates on an axis (vertical or horizontal) making dual or even a trifecta of monitors look and feel modern for your setup. You can find this 23.8" monitor on Amazon for about $109.99.

SCEPTRE's 30" Curved Gaming Monitor

So you've seen the first two and said "that's nice and all but I need both of those put together". Well jeez calm down! y'know they only get better as the list goes on right? Sceptres 30" Monitor is a gamer's dream with its massive screen and high refresh rate. Its edge on other monitors is definitely its aesthetics, It's beautiful all around with a couple added features such as a gaming LED light, built in blue light screen to help from eye fatigue, and has a built in FPS (Frames Per Second) display. Lastly of course this monitor is meant for gaming but due to the built in blue light display working on documents with this monitor will result in more comfort than some of its competitors. Pricing on Amazon right now is $278.99.

Samsung CF390 Series 27"

Although, gaming monitors are nice and all A nice simple office computer might just suite you best. I understand that you want something that simply works and there's no need for fancy frame rate detection and high refresh rates. Take my word for it when I say that 24" screens are tiny and even with blue light displays your eyes will fatigue trying to look at small text on a small screen. 27" monitors are by far a happy middle ground. Finding simplistic but still attractive monitors for the office can be difficult but not impossible. Samsung has always been great with display graphics as a whole, so if you prefer this monitor than don't hesitate to grab one on Amazon for $190.00.

AOC CU34G2X 34" Curved Frameless Immersive Gaming Monitor

Stepping away from Sceptre now, I've done some digging on AOC and am Impressed. This behemoth of a Monitor at 34" is sure to sit nicely on your desk, but with all this offers we both know it's gonna cost a pretty penny. The AOC CU34G2X prices at around $440 dollars. As an enthusiast in all things PC related I dream of a dual setup with this guy. AOC has been a big competitor since 1967 in graphic accuracy and color brilliance within their Monitors. If you spare no expense and have the dough then I strongly recommend this gaming monitor to complete your setup and get to gaming!

Thank you for reading! I hope that my top 5 pick was helpful to you. Keep in mind that any gaming monitor can be used as an office monitor, it really is down to preference on performance and how much you are willing to spend. Anyway, I will be posting new stories 3 times a week about tech and more, so feel free to visit here for some good reads anytime!
