The best players of Valorant or any competitive eSport tend to have the best gaming monitor. You should do the same if you want to rack up some fame or become a better player.
Here are some selections that Pro Players also use and some budget picks for those who do not want to splurge on expensive equipment.
How We Picked the Monitors
If you look around on the internet or browse the shelves at an electronics store, you will see a wave of options in gaming monitors and numbers that you might not understand at first glance.
If you want the best monitor and experience, you will want at least to have the latest and greatest gaming monitor available. Let’s take a look!

|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 several options for connectivity, including DisplayPort and HDMI.
It sits on an adjustable stand for a more comfortable experience. Included in the price tag is the ‘S-Switch,’ allowing you to switch between settings for your display easily.
As with any ZOWIE line of monitors, this option comes with the Black eQualizer function, increasing visibility in low light situations while 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 response 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 should not have issues getting it to work with whatever you have.
With an anti-glare panel on this monitor, you will see more than just that giant yellow splotch of light coming through your window.
If you are 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
A cheaper alternative to the XL2430, it has much of the same features as its more expensive counterpart. 144Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 1080p, the XL2311P supports both DisplayPort and HDMI.
It comes with around (check price), a good deal less than the XL2430. If you do not care about optimizing your display for what you are doing, this monitor is a good and cheaper choice.
6. AOC C24G1
With the same overall specs as the other options, 1080p with a 144Hz refresh rate, the slight curve of this monitor gives you a more immersive experience for more than just Valorant. Again it supports both HDMI and Displayport. If you like curved monitors, this should be a good choice.
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.
