By Peter Chubb - Aug 16, 2016

Even though you have a very powerful gaming PC, it does not mean you have to spend a huge sum of money to find a monitor to get the best experience, as the prices of these monitors are coming down all the time. This is great news, as you can get a model that offers you so much in terms of visual quality at a price far cheaper compared to this time last year.

You will be surprised at just how many 4K monitors there are for gaming that will cost you $500 or less, although there are always going to be some sacrifices compared to those that come with that higher price tag.

Finding the best 4K monitor for gaming under $500 is not an easy task, although with prices falling all the time we know that things will become much easier.

One model that springs to mind is the ASUS PB287Q 4k UHD LED Monitor. You really do get a lot for your money, with features such as WLED display, a 16:9 aspect ratio, up to 3840 by 2160 resolution, more than 8 million pixels and so much more. To see if this is the model for you, you can read over some of the ASUS PB287Q 4k UHD LED Monitor user reviews. There are almost 1,800 of them on Amazon, and so you will get a good idea of just what it’s like to own this model.

Next up we have the Dell P2715Q 27-Inch Ultra HD 4K LCD Monitor. You will see that the price for this monitor costs just over $500 at some places, but there are a few sellers on Amazon in particular that are selling them for under the $500 mark. This model offers exceptional screen clarity, nearly perfect color accuracy, which does make it ideal for gamers. You will find just under 700 Dell P2715Q user reviews, which should allow you to come to an informed decision.

Another model that you should consider is the Acer S277HK wmidpp 27-inch 4K Ultra HD. At the time of its release this was the first 4K UHD monitor equipped with HDMI 2.0. The benefit of this is the bandwidth being increased up to 18Gbps in order to transfer 4K content at 60 fps. To get an idea of how the specs hold up, then you will want to read a review, although we have come across just over 50 Acer S277HK wmidpp reviews from owners. Its review score is not too bad, as it has been given 4 out of 5 stars.
