The First IPS Monitor With 1ms and 240Hz: Alienware AW2521HF 25″ 1080p Gaming Monitor for $384.99
This is a new monitor from Dell. What makes this monitor stand out from the competition is that this is the first IPS monitor I’ve seen with a 1ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate. Other comparable monitors, including the ones from Dell, have a TN panel. An IPS monitor is superior because it has much wider viewing angles and better color rendition.
New Alienware Aurora R9 AMD Ryzen 7 3700X AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming Desktop PC for $1110
For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with the Intel vs AMD CPU war, AMD has been giving Intel a run for its money with its flagship processors. The new AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-core processor is comparable to the Intel Core i7-9700, both in terms of gaming and workstation performance. It’s paired with an RX 5700 XT video card, which is on par with the RTX 2070. If you want to upgrade the RAM or hard drive, I’d suggest doing it on your own. You’ll save money, and the Aurora R9 allows for toolless access without voiding your warranty.
- Use code “50OFF699” to get it at Dell for $1110
