A good computer monitor is a costly investment, but a worthwhile one, too. That is to say that once you’ve dipped your toes into the world of monitors with high refresh rates, shrunken response times, framerate smoothers and superior color depth, well, there’s no turning back. And if your an avid gamer or aspiring video editor, you’re already late to the game.

Today, a handful of high-performance monitors are on sale during Amazon’s PC-focused segment of its ongoing 12 Days of Deals. We’ve picked out a few below, but if you’re new to the jargon-filled world of computer monitors, prepare to do some Googling. Example: if you’re buying a monitor as a gift for a PC user, you should know what kind of graphics card the giftee uses — if it’s Nvidia look for G-Sync, if it’s AMD look for FreeSync.
