The 240Hz refresh rate is a huge deal for professional gamers and enthusiast PC gamers, but you'd better be prepared to own the GPU horsepower to drive 240FPS in your games. Gamers that are playing games like Overwatch, League of Legends, CS:GO or DotA 2 won't have an issue - but don't think you'll be playing at 240FPS on Ultra detail on Battlefield 1 easily on the AOC AG251FZ.

AOC has also included their own Flicker Free Technology and AOC Low Blue Light mode that reduces eye strain and fatigue during those all-night gaming sessions. There's also AOC Shadow Control that will light up the corners of the screen, without making the entire screen brighter. But what good is this new 24.5-inch 1080p 240Hz gaming monitor, without a price?

AOC has priced the AG251FK at 449 EUR, so we should expect a price of under $400 in the United States when it launches in January 2017.
