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

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.
