"You're the best around..." Josh P. Miller

If you're in the market for a new gaming monitor, the most important consideration is performance. If games actually look vibrant and clear, with no input lag or ghosting, you've likely made a good choice.

If you can top that off with an easily navigable onscreen display and easily accessible connections, then you're well on your way to having one of the best-suited monitors for gaming.

So, while performance is paramount, a simple and robust interface and easy access to features can make a good monitor great. Check out our choices for the five best gaming monitors. Please note that we've only chosen monitors that have actually been reviewed on CNET.
