One of my wife’s favourite gifts that I gave to her is an ASUS monitor. True story! It made a huge difference in her work day. She uses it mostly for creating content: presentations and class exercises. However, she could use it to consume content, like video, if she didn’t have so much work to do. Seriously, if you’re looking for a gift for someone who use their monitor for work and fun, especially gaming fun, then ASUS Gaming monitors like the ASUS TUF 29.5″ FHD 200Hz 1ms GTG Curved VA LED FreeSync Gaming Monitor we are giving away in this contest would be a great choice.

Is a gaming monitor really necessary for gaming

The short answer to this question is yes! All monitors are not created equal. Read our Monitor Buying Guide for a detailed explanation of the many varieties and styles to choose from. You’ll get an idea of some of the features that might help you in the search for the perfect monitor gift. If the recipient on your list is a gamer, know that a gaming monitor is a better choice because they are designed to produce the best gaming experience.

Imaging playing a video game, trying to prevent getting attacked, but the video stutters, or suddenly goes blurry: you might miss the opportunity to dart left or jump up, and suffer a strike. You’ll actually play below your skill level and likely improve more slowly or not at all. Gaming monitors have features like very quick refresh rates, which reduces stutter or blurry scenes. They keep you in the game so you perform at your best

ASUS gaming monitors are better for fun, games, and work
