Morning Everyone,

Hope everyone is well and staying safe :)

I have recently just got myself a low range gaming machine but didn't get a monitor so am currently using my tv which I don't really want to do as 60" is just silly.

I don't want to pay a whole lots but am looking for any recommendation on a cheap monitor for some gaming.. Yes I'm new to PC gaming (Normally a console guy)

Welcome to the dark side. What kind of games are you playing and what do you mean by 'low range'?

What is your graphics card? And how much you willing to spend on the monitor?

If you plan to eventually upgrade your PC to more hardcore specs, look at something in the 144hz - 27 inch range. When your PC is buff enough to handle 144fps, the feeling of a 144hz monitor is amazingly sexy. I can't go back to 60hz, because it just feels so clunky and jerky.

You can get some cheaper (AOC), some are more expensive (G-sync monitors fml), have a look in your price range and take your pick.

If you're not going to be chasing FPS, then just get a normal 60hz monitor of whatever size you prefer. Since you're buying for low tier hardware, I'd recommend not going over 1920x1080 resolution as well, since 1440p and higher resolutions need more power to run at the same fps as in 1080p.

If you are at all on the budget end you should just target just 1080p at 60hz refresh imo, and then look at the best size/features you can afford. If you decide that PC is where your heart is once you have a proper setup then a side monitor (even a 60hz one) won't go astray.

As a snarky side benefit you'll also be able to relate directly to Intel benchmarks.
