What to expect when you buy a new gaming monitor?
Most gaming monitors are going to cost around $500 or more.
That’s a lot of money, but what about the monitor itself?
Here are a few of the most common questions we get asked about new gaming monitors: Will it be compatible with my PC?
There’s no guarantee that your monitor will work with your PC, but if it’s compatible, you’ll be able to hook it up to your PC in a way that makes it feel like it’s part of your gaming setup.
Some monitors will work fine on PC but not all.
Will it work with my PS4 or Xbox One?
Some monitors can work on both, but not many.
Most games on PC don’t use the Xbox One’s built-in motion controller, so some of these games may not work well on a PS4.

Most monitors have built-into ports, so you don’t need to worry about buying a separate model.
But if you have a question about a monitor’s capabilities or how it will work, you may want to ask about the features of the monitor you’re purchasing.
How do I check for compatibility with my current monitor?
Some of the monitors listed here have the option to check for the latest support.
This feature, known as the “new monitor support,” shows how compatible the monitor is with your current monitor.
If the monitor supports HDR, the new monitor will also be compatible.
How does this work?
When you first connect a monitor to your computer, the system checks for the newest monitor support.
If you don, it’ll tell you that the monitor doesn.
If it supports HDR and HDR support, the monitor will tell you if it supports the new HDR display mode.
If HDR support isn’t supported, it will tell that you don “not have HDR support” or “HDMI is not supported.”
If you do have HDR, you can choose to enable HDR support.
It’s important to understand that if you don
