It's good fun to talk about GTX 1080s and Titan Xes, but the fact remains that most people's budgets can't quite stretch to those cards. That same rule applies to monitors, too. Think of a big but decent monitor, with a price tag that your Average Gamer would find reasonable, and chances are you'd come up with Dell's SE2717H.
The SE2717H is a 27" monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080 and a maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz. It has a couple tricks up its sleeve, though. First and foremost, the display supports FreeSync VRR technology, providing smooth, tear-free gaming with compatible Radeon graphics cards. If anyone's wondering, the display's FreeSync range goes from 48 to 75 Hz. Second, the screen is based on IPS display panel tech, which should let users enjoy good color accuracy and viewing angles. Response time rings in at 6 ms.
Dell says the screen can show 16.7 million colors at a maximum brightness of 300 cd/m² and with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The input connectivity section offers HDMI and plain ol' VGA inputs. Extra niceties include a flicker-free backlight and optional blue light reduction. The Dell SE2717H rings in at a palatable $250, making it an affordable ticket into the world of variable-refresh-rate goodness.
