When it comes to gaming monitors I'm like a fancy Englishmen drinking tea, holding my little finger in the air and slowing sipping it, because I'm posh, or something. I can't do 1080p anymore as I haven't had a 1080p monitor for close to 10 years now.

AOC AGON AG322QCX: 32-inch 1440p 144Hz FreeSync = Just $470 02 |

The last gaming monitor that I had with a native 1920x1080 resolution would have to be the old Samsung S27A950D, the 27-inch 1080p 120Hz monitors from years and years ago now, just before joining the ranks of TweakTown.

I went over to the HP LP3065 just after that, a monstrous 30-inch display with an eye-popping native resolution, at the time, of 2560x1600 with a beautiful 16:10 aspect ratio built with only 60Hz. The move going back to 60Hz really hurt, as I was so used to 120Hz, but the resolution was king.

As soon as 2560x1440 monitors arrived with 120Hz and then 144Hz, and then 165Hz, I was all over them. The biggest problem is that they were mostly locked to smaller 27/28-inch panels, which was a great size for 1440p but then there are some gamers who want something bigger.

This is where AOC comes into the fray with their AGON AG322QCX monitor, a huge 31.5-inch 1440p gaming display with a beautifully smooth 144Hz refresh rate, and even FreeSync on top.

Even for workstation use, the fluidity of 120-165Hz is unmatched by sheer pixels. Hell, behind my shoulder is a 32-inch 8K display with a native resolution of 7680x4320 but it is massively held back by its 60Hz refresh rate. The color clarity and sheer pixel density is amazing, but 60Hz is caveman-like once you've gone past 120Hz.

Still, a workstation display that blends beautifully by being a 31.5-inch 1440p 144Hz gaming beast is a great combo, especially when the price is this good.

AOC is currently selling the AGON AG322QCX in Australia for AUD $599, which works out to around $400-$470 once you take the 10% GST from the Australian retail pricing. Not a bad deal at all, a damn good deal for a 32-inch 1440p 144Hz FreeSync display.
