One of the quickest and arguably easiest ways to upgrade your PC experience is to buy a new monitor. Whether it's one that's bigger, has a faster refresh rate or just looks nicer, choosing a new monitor can give any computer a new lease on life. It doesn't have to be expensive, either.

Best 27-inch monitor deals

These 27-inch models feature QHD resolution and give you more screen real estate than a 24-inch, FHD (full HD or 1,920x1,080 pixel) display, and better resolution, too. They also give you all that for not too much more money. You might also come across 27-inch 4K displays in your search. Those displays offer quality worth consideration, but in my experience, a QHD or 2K resolution is more than sufficient when stretched across a 27-inch panel.

samsung-27-t350-series-bf
Samsung

Samsung is known for its high-end gaming monitors, so if you want to go with a Samsung option, this is probably the cheapest. It runs an FHD resolution with an IPS panel, and has a 75Hz refresh rate.

Sceptre 27 inch IPS 2K Monitor with a round base on a white background
Sceptre

This 27-inch Sceptre monitor features a sleek, nearly bezel-less design, which makes it a great choice if you've got a multimonitor setup, and it's equipped with both DisplayPort and HDMI ports. It has an IPS display with a speedy 144Hz refresh rate. It's also rated for 450 nits of brightness and runs at QHD, which is excellent for a monitor at this price.

pixio-px277-monitor
Pixio

This 27-inch Pixio monitor is a great value even at its full list price, and at Amazon you can pick it up for even less. It features a QHD resolution along with AMD FreeSync and a speedy 144Hz refresh rate if you want to use it for gaming in addition to work. It's rated for an ample 350 nits of brightness. Just be sure to clip the coupon to get the full deal.

asus-tuf-vg27wq1b-bf
Asus

Asus' TUF gaming monitor can manage the more standard 165Hz refresh rate that you might see on high-end gaming monitors. It's not only well priced, but it also has AMD FreeSync Premium, Extreme Low Motion Blur tech, and its own speakers, so you don't have to get an independent set if you mostly rely on headphones.

acer-nitro-xf273u-bf
Acer

If you're looking for a monitor that has high refresh rates at a low price, this Acer Nitro XF273U can hit 240Hz for less than $300. It's also an LCD screen using IPS technology, so it has good viewing angles and image reproduction. It also runs a higher 2560x1440 resolution, making this a perfect for higher-end gaming PCs.

Best 32-inch monitor deals

The next step up in size, resolution and price from a 27-inch QHD display is a 32-inch UHD display. Ultra HD is also commonly referred to as 4K. That said, there are some great 32-inch QHD displays as well that will still be as good.

dell-32-inch-se3223q-bf
Dell

32-inch 4K monitors aren't cheap, so seeing one from Dell at just $300 is great. Granted, it can only hit 60Hz, but that's perfectly fine for pretty much any gaming application, since even the RTX 4090 can struggle to achieve high refresh rates at 4K. Dell's monitor can also hit 4ms gray-to-gray in extreme mode and has AMD FreeSync to deal with any tearing or ghosting.

samsung-odyssey-g55a-bf
Samsung

If you're a fan of Samsung, then you'll really like this 1440p 32-inch curved monitor with excellent image reproduction and fidelity. It has a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and FreeSync Premium. Interestingly enough, it also comes with HDR10 support, although it won't be the same that you might see on TV.

msi-32-inch-g321cu-bf
Acer

Curved screens can be a lot of fun, and this one from MSI is perfect if you want to do some gaming since it can hit a 144Hz refresh rate. It also comes with three months of free YouTube Premium and six months of Norton 360. Even better, there's an offer that gives you 20% off select Logitech hardware and accessories. Just be aware that the offer only applies if you have My Best Buy Plus or Total.
