Top 3 budget gaming monitor with 144hz | One PC Panda

Today I'm going to show you the best budget gaming monitors that you can pick up in 2021. 2020 was a rough year for everyone however, we did get to see some incredible technologies and monitors, and no exception they really have come a long way from the days of the mighty CRT. We now have a whole range of incredible monitors on offer including curved ultrawide 2K, 4K, a refresh rate peaking up to 360 Hertz. So maybe it really is time to retire the trusty monitor you've had since the early 2000s.

Top 3: Acer Nitro VG22OQ

  • 21.5" Full HD (1920 x 1080) Widescreen IPS Monitor
  • AMD Radeon FreeSync Technology
  • Refresh Rate: 75Hz - Using HDMI Port
  • Zero-Frame Design | 1ms Response Time (VRB) | IPS Panel | 2 speakers, 2 watts per speaker
  • Ports: 2 x HDMI 1.4 Ports & 1 x VGA
  • 75 hertz

Now, this may not be the best monitor on the list. however, it is certainly the cheapest it goes to 75 Hertz refresh rate, 1080P resolution. I wanna commend the response time and also free sync, an eye care technology included too is an IPS panel. 

It won't be as good as a TN panel however, it more than makes up for it with its incredible color actually and picture quality. This really is a great monitor and for such a small price tag.

Top 2: BenQ Zowie XL2411P

  • Lightning-fast 144 Hz refresh rate performance for a smooth PC gaming experience over DisplayPort or DVI-D
  • HDMI only outputs 60Hz max; NOT COMPATIBLE with PS5 / XBox Series X/5 @ 120Hz; Please check out the XL2411K for full 120Hz compatibility
  • 1ms Response Time (GTG) to eliminate ghosting and lag, providing the optimal gaming experience. Dimensions (HxWxD mm)‎- 559 (Highest) / 429 (Lowest) x 570 x 219; Dimensions with wall mount (HxWxD mm) (w/o Base)‎- 347x570x59.97
  • Exclusive Color Vibrance and Black eQualizer technology to enhance visual clarity and customized color settings, giving players the advantage on the battlefield
  • Multiple connectivity options featuring DisplayPort, Dual-Link DVI-D to reach 144Hz, HDMI, and Headphone/Microphone Jack input

It's packed with a 144 Hertz refresh rate, 1080P resolution, and a 1ms response time. Despite the low $200 price tag we still feel this is one of the best monitors for all the esports titles such as CS go and Rainbow 6 Siege. I have anything going for it however the stand is very versatile and if you're going to look for a budget Esports monitor this could be the one for you. 


  • 27 inch WQHD (2560x1440) IPS gaming monitor with 1ms (MPRT) response time 165Hz refresh rate (supports 144Hz) and G-SYNC compatibility for a tear-free experience
  • ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB Sync) Technology enables a 1ms response time (MPRT) together with Adaptive-Sync eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates
  • Marathon ready with ASUS Eye Care technology to minimize eye fatigue and an ergonomic stand with full height/tilt/swivel/pivot adjustments to accommodate any desk
  • Compatible with industry-standard HDR10 High Dynamic Range for color and brightness levels that exceed the capabilities of ordinary monitors
  • Flexible connectivity options with DisplayPort 1.2 and Dual HDMI (V2.0)

The perfect balance between price and performance. It is a TN panel featuring a 1080P resolution, 144 Hertz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. But expect anything less. 

The days of struggling to find a 144 Hertz monitor under $300 are gone. today's market offers a whole bunch of gaming monitors that come equipped with this technology and this is no exception. It is up there with the very best and it is considered one of the best for competitive gaming. 

The stand once again is super versatile and has four directional adjustabilities to monitor. Also comes with eye care technology, free sync support, an exclusive game visual and game plus functions to enhance the color. 


This completes gaming package monitors and is absolutely fantastic for individuals looking to take their competitive gaming to the next level. 

So there you have it guys our recommendation pulled the best gaming one is that you can pick up in 2021.

  1. I use ASUS TUF VG27AQ to play and work with no problems with it.

  2. Thanks for this info. Big help for my next purchase. Keep posting!!

  3. Kudos to this article it helped me a lot in buying my new monitor. Thanks!

  4. IMHO the Asus VP249QGR should be on this list, for just under $220 you get 24" 1080p resolution, 144hz freesync, IPS Panel and it's VESA mount ready. For 1080p gamer, this is a bang for the buck.

    1. That one definitely slipped out of my list. The Asus VP249QGR should be given a solo post for being neglected.

  5. Impressive!Thanks for the post.

    keep it up.

  6. Planning to buy this kind of Monitors .. Thanks

  7. The BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P 24 Inch 144Hz Gaming Monitor is so crisp! Make sure you go into the Nvidia Control panel and set it to 144hz.

  8. Does the Acer SB220Q have built in speakers?

    1. The SB270 Bbix DOES NOT have speakers. But it has a 3.5mm audio OUTPUT port which can be used to attach headphones or external speakers.

  9. Does the TUF monitor have vesa mounting points? If so what size.

  10. The ASUS TUF VG27AQ is such a beast of a monitor! I'm on my way to getting one (still some dollars off but will get there soon). I can't wait to experience the power this baby has. I've had the chance to see it and feel it at a friend's house. He has this model and it was love at first sight.
