If you really want to get the most out of your gaming experience, then snapping up a cheap gaming monitor deal is a surefire way to increase your chances of doing so. And those on the lookout for a new gaming display - and who don't want to shell out on the most expensive models - should look no further than here, because these deals are delicious: one Alienware monitor is at its lowest ever price of around $350, and an alternative ASUS panel is down to a very impulse-purchase-worthy $249 too.

First off, you can have serious confidence in Alienware monitors as there are a couple sitting happily in our guide to the best gaming monitors (opens in new tab). This particular one is the AW2720HF model. It has all that Alienware quality by default and some seriously good good gaming specs within too. In particular, its combination of a refresh rate of up to 240Hz, a 1ms response time, and FreeSync compatibility means it will give you some of the smoothest images and pictures you can possibly get without having to spend the extra bucks on a G-Sync model. It's an IPS which will give you excellent quality as well, vividness, and really punchy pictures from multiple angles on its 27-inch panel with a 1080p resolution. It can be yours for $349.99 (opens in new tab) - an incredibly competitive price and a great one to liven up your January.

Remember, gaming monitors are now incredibly versatile beasts, not just for PC gamers. Increasingly, they'll do a great job with a console and are perfect for those who have a multi device setup at home, and will, naturally, serve you well with day to day computer tasks as well.
