gaming monitor

Gaming monitor is the phrase used to describe a computer monitor designed for use in a computer gaming system ("gaming rig"). Today's gaming monitors offer large screen sizes – typically 24 to 27 inch display, full HD (or QHD - Quad High Definition) and contrast display.

Sharp moving images, fast refresh rates and sync improvements set gaming monitors apart from others. The faster refresh rates can help limit gaming display issues like ghost images, on-screen jittering and motion blur. Gaming monitors also include various ports and headphone jacks and base brackets to tilt, swivel or pivot the monitor for improved viewing angles.
