Serious about gaming? Ditch your small phone screen or your regular computer monitor and consider grabbing a gaming monitor that'll elevate your experience. If you want to fully immerse yourself in a state-of-the-art screen, you're in luck. Acer's Predator CG7 42-inch gaming monitor (which is typically $1,600) is now at its lowest price yet on Amazon. You can get it for just $1,000 today.

Acer has a bunch of Predator screens, but this one takes the cake. It's a 42.5-inch screen that delivers a 4K gaming experience with revolutionary built-in tech. The screen has a hyper-refresh rate of 144Hz on a VESA Certified DisplayHDR 1000 large format gaming display. Sounds like a bunch of fancy gaming talk, but to put it in perspective, most modern displays have a refresh rate of 60Hz.

The monitor comes equipped with an automatic light sensor that detects the ambient light in your environment. It will automatically adjust brightness and contrast for a comfortable viewing experience. A proximity sensor can detect if there's anyone around and enter power-saving mode if there's no motion. 

If you don't have gaming speakers yet, this monitor has two 10-watt speakers that will enhance your viewing experience. You can plug in your phone, attach a dongle for your wireless gamepad of choice or tag in a high-end peripheral of choice with three USB Type-C plugs.
