The best players of Valorant or any competitive eSport tend to also have the best gaming monitor. If you want to rack up some fame or just become a better player in general, you’d might as well do the same.
Here are some selections that Pro Players also use, and some budget picks for those who don’t want to splurge on expensive equipment.
How We Picked the Monitors
If you just look around on the internet or browse the shelves at an electronics store, you’ll see a wave of options in gaming monitors and numbers that you might not understand at first glance.
If you’re looking to have the best monitor and the best experience, you’ll want to at least have the latest and greatest gaming monitor available. Let’s take a look!
Best Monitors for Valorant
|BenQ ZOWIE XL2430||24″||1920×1080||144 Hz|
|Omen by HP||25″||1920×1080||144hz|
|BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P||24″||1920×1080||144Hz|
1. BenQ ZOWIE XL2430
The monitor of choice for a few players in the current Valorant scene. Alongside a 1920×1080 resolution, this monitor boasts a refresh rate of 144Hz and has a number of options for connectivity, including DisplayPort and HDMI.
It sits on an adjustable stand for a more comfortable experience. Included in the price tag is what is called the ‘S-Switch’, allowing you to easily switch between settings for your display.
As with any of the ZOWIE line of monitors, this option comes with the Black eQualizer function, increasing visibility in low light situations while also not overexposing more brightly lit places.
2. Alienware AW2518H Gaming Monitor
While quite a bit more expensive gaming monitor, the AW2518H has a refresh rate of 240Hz and has much of the same options as the XL2430. It has both HDMI and DisplayPort connections and again has an adjustable stand.
This monitor utilizes NVIDIA G-SYNC and has a 1 ms reponse time, so there should be minimal input lag and screen tearing.
3. Omen by HP 25 Inch FHD Gaming Monitor
The final of the Pro Picks comes from Omen. This monitor also sits at a resolution of 1920×1080 with a refresh rate of 144Hz. It also supports DisplayPort and HDMI, so you shouldn’t have any issues with getting it to work with whatever you have.
With an anti-glare panel on this monitor, you’ll be able to see more than just that giant yellow splotch of light coming through your window.
If you’re just looking for a monitor at a more affordable price, then maybe some of these options will be a bit better for you, with similar specs.
4. Acer XFA240
Best Budget Pick
A cheaper option that still has a 144Hz refresh rate and DisplayPort and HDMI support. Once again this monitor is full HD, and sits on an adjustable stand for greater comfort. It also comes with built in speakers and supports NVIDIA G-SYNC.
5. BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P

Comes with the price tag of around (check price), a good deal less than the XL2430. If you don’t really care about optimizing your display for what you’re doing, then this monitor is a good and cheaper choice.
6. AOC C24G1
If you like your monitors curved, then this should be a good choice. With the same overall specs as the other options, 1080p with a 144Hz refresh rate, the slight curve of this monitor gives oyu a more immersive experience for more than just Valorant. Again it supports both HDMI and Displayport.
This is only slightly more expensive than the other budget picks, but if you like the immersion of a curved monitor, then this is the way to go.
