cheapest 144z monitor

Looking for some of the best and cheap 144hz monitor for you computer system: With the development of esports and competitive gaming, players worldwide are searching for every competitive edge they can get. One option to get an edge is to use a high refresh rate monitor, which will enable you to achieve the highest potential framerate.

Monitors with a high refresh rate used to be expensive. However, the cost of higher refresh rate panels has decreased in recent years, and there are now several inexpensive 144Hz monitors on the market. As a result, we’ll assess and review nine of the finest affordable 144Hz gaming monitors in this article.

A Quick Look at the Best 144Hz Monitors on the Market

The table below highlights our top selection, our decision for the best inexpensive 27-inch 144Hz monitor, the top option with G-Sync, our favorite value pick, and the lowest overall prospect for the best cheap 144Hz displays.

24′′ Sceptre E255B-1658A

The Sceptre E255B-1658A sticks out the most among the possibilities on this list. It not only has a low price, but it also has AMD’s FreeSync technology and a 165Hz refresh rate, which is greater than any of the other alternatives on our list.

The narrow bezel design of the Sceptre E255B-1658A is another striking feature. Because there is essentially no border around the sides and top of the display, it is an excellent option for usage in a triple monitor setup. The 1ms reaction time on its 1080P 24.5-inch LED display is likewise impressive.

Overall, the Sceptre E255B-1658A is our recommendation for the most acceptable budget 144Hz+ monitor presently available, thanks to its higher refresh rate, insanely low price, and FreeSync technology.

27-inch Samsung Odyssey G3

The bigger Samsung Odyssey G3 costs a bit more than the Sceptre E255B-1658A. Whereas the Sceptre E255B-1658A has a 24.5-inch display, the Samsung Odyssey G3 has a 27-inch display, giving more extraordinary screen real estate.

It doesn’t cost much more to get that additional inch and a half of screen real estate. The Odyssey G3 is just $50 more costly than the Sceptre E255B-1658A in total. The Odyssey G3 has AMD’s FreeSync technology, much like the Sceptre E255B-1658A.

The Odyssey G3 has a lower refresh rate (165Hz vs. 144Hz), although the difference in real-world performance is unlikely to be substantial. The Sceptre E255B-1658A, on the other hand, has slimmer bezels.

In the end, if you prefer a more extensive 27-inch panel to a smaller 24-inch display, the Odyssey G3 is likely the most budget-friendly 144Hz monitor for you. If not, you may save a little money by choosing the smaller Sceptre E255B-1658A.

24′′ Acer XFA240

Our recommendation for the best G-Sync monitor on this list is the Acer XFA240 24′′. It’s also the only choice on our list that supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. The Acer XFA240 is also the cheapest G-Sync compliant monitor on the market, costing little under $200.

It also includes a one-millisecond reaction time and built-in speakers.

All of these characteristics combine to make it an incredible value for the money. The Acer XFA240 is your best choice if you use NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology (rather than AMD’s FreeSync, which isn’t compatible with NVIDIA graphics cards).

However, if you don’t mind using AMD’s FreeSync technology instead, one of the two alternatives stated above is the best choice.

24′′ Sceptre C248B-144RN

If you want a 144Hz monitor for even less money, two possibilities are less expensive than the three options described above. The Sceptre C248B-144RN is one of such alternatives.

The Sceptre C248B-144RN is a curved 24-inch 1080P monitor with a 3ms reaction time and a 144Hz refresh rate. AMD’s FreeSync technology is also included.

It costs a few dollars more than the AOC G2460PF, which is shown below. It also costs considerably under $160, making it one of the most affordable 144Hz screens on the market. The Sceptre C248B-144RN, on the other hand, has a curved panel and smaller bezels, which we believe add to its value. However, if those two factors aren’t crucial to you and you want the cheapest 144Hz gaming monitor available, the AOC G2460PF may be bought for a little less.


The AOC G2460PF, like the Sceptre C248B-144RN, is a 24-inch 1080P monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate and AMD’s FreeSync technology. The AOC C24G1A is another ultra-cheap 144Hz display. The AOC G2460PF is a few dollars less expensive than the Sceptre C248B-144RN. Furthermore, both shows have comparable specifications.

However, there are a few distinctions. First and foremost, as previously stated, the C24G1A is a few dollars less costly than the C248B-144RN. The C248B-144RN also features narrower bezels than the other two alternatives, even though each has curved panels. However, the C24G1A has a quicker reaction time than the C248B-144RN. (1 millisecond vs. three milliseconds.)

Both monitors are solid choices, and if you don’t require the C248B-144RN’s slim bezel design, you can save a little money and acquire the C24G1A instead.

27′′ Sceptre C275B-144R

The Sceptre C275B-144R is a bigger 27-inch 144Hz monitor with a curved display that is worth considering. It costs roughly $20 more than the Dell D2719HGF, which has a 27-inch display, but it features a curved screen rather than a flat one.

The Sceptre C275B-144R also has AMD’s FreeSync technology, a narrow bezel, and a reaction time of 3 milliseconds. The 3ms reaction time is slower than the Dell D2719HGF’s 2ms response time, although the difference is unlikely to be evident in real-world circumstances.

Finally, if you don’t require the curved panel that comes with the Sceptre C275B-144R, you’d be better off saving some money and going with the Dell D2719HGF.

ViewSonic VX2458-MHD

The ViewSonic VX2458-MHD is another good 144Hz monitor at a reasonable price. It is, however, approximately $20 more costly than AOC’s G2460PF while having a virtually same feature set.

Both are 24-inch 1080P displays with a 1ms reaction time and a 144Hz refresh rate, as well as AMD’s FreeSync technology.

So, until the VX2458-MHD’s price drops drastically, it won’t be as good a deal as the AOC G2460PF.

24′′ ViewSonic XG2401

Another budget-friendly 144Hz monitor worth considering is ViewSonic’s XG2401. It is highly comparable to the AOC G2460PF and Acer XFA240 in terms of features. While all of those alternatives are far less expensive, ViewSonic’s XG2401 is one to consider if it goes on sale.

The XG2401 boasts a 24′′ 1080P display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. It’s also Freesync compatible, allowing you to use AMD’s adaptive sync technology with an AMD Radeon graphics card.

Overall, we believe that there are better solutions on this list in terms of price against value. To meet the price-to-performance ratio of any of our top picks on this list, the XG2401 will need to drop in price significantly.

MSI Optix MAG24C 24′′ Monitor

MSI is a top brand in gaming desktops, laptops, motherboards, and graphics cards, but they aren’t well-known in the monitor industry. It’s no surprise, therefore, that their Optix MAG24C is a high-quality 144Hz display.

Unfortunately, the Optix MAG24C presently has a worse price-to-performance ratio than some of the other alternatives on our list due to its current pricing. If you desire a curved display, the bigger Dell D2719HGF is less expensive. If you need a 24-inch 144Hz FreeSync monitor, the AOC G2460PF is about $40 less expensive, while our top selection, the Sceptre E255B-1658A, is $20 less expensive and has a higher refresh rate.

So, like with many of our Honorable Mention picks, the MSI Optix MAG24C’s current pricing is the most significant impediment to it being placed higher.
