Best G-Sync Monitors:
Editor’s note: We will update this post as more G-Sync monitors are released.
1. Alienware AW3418DW G-Sync Monitor
The Alienware AW3418DW is definitely one of the best G-Sync monitors, especially for 4K PC gaming. This monitor has a 34-inch 21:9 curved display with a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution. The refresh rate normally is 100Hz but it can be overclocked to 120Hz.
The display has a 1900R curvature, which should provide a more immersive experience. Also, the design of the monitor itself is well done, with some rather thin bezels. It’s definitely not cheap, but it’s worth investigating.
2. Asus ROG Swift PG279Q
The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q has many of the same features as the previous Acer monitor. However, its price is several hundred dollars less. That’s due in part to the fact that the 27-inch Asus monitor has a lower resolution of 2,560 x 1,440.
If you can live with that, you will still benefit from features like a refresh rate that can go up to 164Hz. You also get a way to change the blue light coming from the screen, with four different levels available. That should cut out eye strain as you play games for hours. Finally, first-person shooter fans can use a special overlay for four different crosshair choices.
3. Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ
The Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ is basically the upgraded version of the PG279Q G-Sync monitor. You have the same 27-inch IPS display, but the resolution goes up to 3,840 x 2,160. The refresh rate goes to 144Hz, and its peak brightness goes up to 1,000 nits brightness.

Acer has put in what it calls the Predator Game Mode, which allows you to automatically switch between game profiles.
