    I was wondering if you guys know some G Sync monitors that do not eat most of my wallet up.

    What kind of budget do you have?
    The issues with a G-Sync monitor that is cheap is unlike AMD and there freesync software for AMD cards, Nvidia makes monitor manufacturers pay for the use of there G-Sync technology. What this means, Is you will hardly find a cheap G-Sync monitor, and all the monitors with no sync tech or Freesync will be cheaper for people to buy, and that means not many people put there time into making G-Sync monitors unless the monitors are already a fair bit expensive anyways.
    There are always sales on, But take a look here, The cheapest G-Sync monitors / all the G-Sync monitors you can get via PCPartPicker. You might be able to find cheaper deals used or at some stores that PCPartPicker does not pick up like costco and such, and you might find some other G-Sync monitors that a cheap and have a bad name. The cheapest semi-good name you can get is Acer, I dislike them myself but I have heard they have gotten better since I had my horror story with them a couple years back with a laptop.
    keithcys and DestaKhoo like this.

    The good news is that gsync prices have been coming down finally, The Dell SD2417DG is cheaper and better than any freesync monitors right now. It's 1440p and 165hz. It doesn't have amazing colors, and it does have some color banding when there's certain shades of black but you'll never go back to 60hz after getting a nice monitor. I have it and like it, although I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a 1070 GPU or higher or you won't be getting very high frames.
  4. I'd recommend heading over to and doing some research there.
