We’ve often stated that a new monitor is the most transformative upgrade a PC gamer can make, and though finding the right panel to suit your needs can be a bit of a chore, tumbling prices help separate the wheat from the chaff.

Right now, the AOC Gaming 24G2SPAE is a stand-out choice at an all-time-low of just £98.97. For under a hundred quid, this 24in IPS panel touts a full-HD resolution, 1ms response time, and swift 165Hz refresh rate complete with AMD FreeSync Premium adaptive synchronisation.

Despite growing popularity of larger QHD panels, fast, affordable 1080p monitors continue to be the preferred choice with good reason. It won’t take an exorbitant graphics card to achieve the requisite framerates and a 24in setup fits in just about any room, making the likes of the 24G2SPAE a prime pick for a huge number of gamers.

Dimensions come in at 539mm x 421mm x 227mm including stand, viewing angles for an IPS screen tend to be better than most, and it’s officially certified as G-Sync compatible, too. Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4, and the latter is ideal for running a latest-generation game console at up to 120Hz.

Fancying something a little larger and higher resolution? It’s an exciting time to be in the market for a new display, as even 4K 144Hz solutions are more affordable than ever before.
