In this Best Gaming Monitor 2022 Buying Guide, we review the key things you need to know to find the best gaming monitor for pc gaming, PS5, or Xbox Series X. We explain the important specs of resolution, refresh rate, response time, panel type, and more. Most gamers will want a refresh rate of at least 144Hz, which roughly equals 144 FPS. There are diminishing returns for refresh rates above 165 Hz and ultra high refresh rates are mostly for competitive shooters where every frame makes difference. The best gaming monitor 2022 will also have good response time and low input lag. To find the best gaming monitor 2022 you need to look past the marketing. 1080p gaming monitors remain very popular for both budget and high end competitive shooter audiences (who want maximum refresh rates), but the fastest growing market is 1440p gaming monitors. Some of the best gaming monitors you can buy are 1440p, and we review the best gaming monitor for any resolution. If you want the best 4k gaming monitor, and particularly the best 4K 144hz gaming monitor (best 4K 120hz gaming monitor for console), then there are great options in 2022.

Our recommendations include best budget gaming monitor, best 1080p gaming monitor, best 1440p gaming monitor, best ultrawide gaming monitor, best super ultrawide gaming monitor, best budget 4k gaming monitor and best 4K 144hz gaming monitor. We teach you how to understand the key properties of a gaming monitor to find the best one. The monitors we review are good for PS5 (1080p and 4K, as PS5 does not support 1440p) and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. #PCGaming #GamingMonitor
