Even if your wallet isn’t ready to make the jump to a 4K display, you can still upgrade your gaming with a refresh rate. Which brings us to today’s deal: Amazon is selling a 23.6-inch Acer 1080p gaming monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate for $150Remove non-product link, 25 percent off its MSRP and the lowest price we’ve seen all year.
The Acer KG241Q is a TN panel with a 1ms response time, as well as that fast refresh rate. This is a FreeSync display, and AMD says FreeSync works up to 75Hz and not the full 144Hz. That’s a bummer if you’re looking to use FreeSync to the max, but 75Hz is still faster than most monitors. Besides, you can still see benefits by bumping up your frame rates beyond 75Hz.
