          For many years, 1440p 144Hz monitors were considered ideal for gaming because they combine a fast enough refresh rate for PC gaming with a high resolution. However, as more high refresh rate monitors have become available in recent years, the 1440p 144Hz monitor market has been getting smaller, and most 1440p monitors with a native 144Hz refresh rate you can find now are ultrawide displays. These monitors are good if you don’t need the highest refresh rate or resolution or if your computer setup can’t take advantage of high-end monitors anyways.

          While you can buy a 1440p monitor with a higher refresh rate to use at 144Hz or get a 4k @ 144Hz monitor and set it to a lower resolution, this article only considers 1440p monitors with a native 144Hz refresh rate. Most of these monitors offer the same features, like variable refresh rate (VRR) support, and they all have low input lag, but it’s also important to consider the monitor’s response time if you want something with good motion handling.

          We’ve bought and tested over 275 monitors, and below are our picks for the best 1440p 144Hz monitors to buy. Check out our recommendations for the best 1440p gaming monitors, the best 144Hz monitors, and the best 1440p monitors.

            The best 1440p 144Hz monitor we’ve tested is the LG 34GP950G-B. With a 34-inch, ultrawide screen, it’s still considered a 1440p monitor because it has a 3440×1440 resolution. It means it’s wider horizontally than a 27-inch, 1440p monitor but has the same screen height. This means you can see more of your game at once, and it’s great for PC gaming as you can overclock its 144Hz native refresh rate to 180Hz over a DisplayPort connection, but it’s limited to a max of 100Hz over HDMI. It also has incredible motion handling, especially at high refresh rates, but it doesn’t have a backlight strobing feature to further improve the appearance of motion at lower refresh rates.

            It’s a premium gaming monitor in terms of features as it has native G-SYNC variable refresh rate (VRR) support, so it offers a few extra features if you have an NVIDIA graphics card, like variable overdrive. It has other features you can use with any graphics card to improve your gaming experience, like a virtual crosshair that gives you a competitive advantage in FPS games as your games’ anti-cheat tool won’t detect it, and its black stabilizer feature lets you see opponents better in dark games.

            If you find that the LG 34GP950G-B is too much out of your price range, you can save some money by getting an upper mid-range option like the LG 34GP83A-B instead. It’s a very similar monitor with the same 34-inch screen size and ultrawide aspect ratio, but the main difference is that it doesn’t have native G-SYNC support like on the 34GP950-B and instead is G-SYNC compatible. While this means that its VRR support still works with NVIDIA graphics cards, it can’t take full advantage of them. However, if you have an AMD graphics card and don’t need the native G-SYNC support, it’s a great option.

            It has an overclock feature like the 34GP950G-B, but only up to 160Hz and not 180Hz, and its motion handling is as good with fast response times across its entire refresh rate range. The 34GP83A-B doesn’t get as bright as the 34GP950G-B either, but it’s still a good choice if you need to use it in a room with a few lights around, as its brightness is still great, and the reflection handling is okay.

            While some mid-range options cost less than the LG 34GP83A-B and don’t have ultrawide screens, like the ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQ, those monitors are hard to find, so if you want a cheaper option, then you can save a lot of money by getting another ultrawide monitor, the Gigabyte M34WQ. It’s a step down in performance compared to the LG because it has worse motion handling, particularly at 60Hz, as there’s more blur with fast-moving objects, and you can’t overclock its refresh rate to anything above 144Hz. However, it’s still great for gaming as fast-moving objects look smooth at high refresh rates, and it also has VRR support to reduce screen tearing.

            On top of its great gaming performance, it offers good picture quality with accurate colors and high peak brightness, enough to fight glare. It’s also a great choice if you want to use it for co-op gaming, as it has good ergonomics, and its wide viewing angles ensure the image remains consistent from the sides.

            Budget monitors also offer great gaming performance if you’re willing to sacrifice a few features, and you can find low-cost displays with a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is great if you aren’t a fan of ultrawide displays. If you’re interested in that, the best budget 1440p 144Hz monitor we’ve tested is the LG 27GL850-B. It’s available in two different models, the 27GL850-B and the 27GL83A-B, and while they perform nearly the same, the 27GL850-B has two USB ports. It’s different from the Gigabyte M34WQ because it has a smaller 27-inch screen, so you don’t get the same immersive gaming experience. Like the Gigabyte, you can’t overclock its 144Hz refresh rate to anything higher, which is normal for budget monitors, and it has native FreeSync VRR support with G-SYNC compatibility.

            Motion looks incredible on this monitor, especially at its max refresh rate, and there isn’t much motion blur at low refresh rates either. Like most gaming monitors, it includes extra features like a virtual crosshair and a black stabilizer, helping you gain an advantage in games to see opponents easier.

          • Dell S3422DWG:
            The Dell S3422DWG is a dark room alternative to the Gigabyte M34WQ as it has a higher contrast ratio but costs more and has worse motion handling.
            See our review
          • Gigabyte G27Q:
            The Gigabyte G27Q is slightly cheaper than the LG 27GL850-B/27GL83A-B and still offers great gaming performance, but it has worse response times leading to more motion blur.
