Final Thoughts

The ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM monitor is a near $500 monitor offering a native 1080p resolution and buttery smooth 280Hz refresh rate, but is it worth of your money? Well, first -- you've got to have a gaming PC with a grunty enough graphics card to handle 1080p at 280FPS.

You're not going to find your entire library of games will run at 280FPS, or hell, even be capable of driving up to 280FPS. Some games have frame rate limiters, and some games just can't scale up past 150-200FPS. But for esports gaming like PUBG, Fortnite, Apex Legends and others -- you will be mostly fine at hitting 280FPS.

You'll need a beefy graphics card, so I would recommend mixing in a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER at a minimum, and if you wanted Team Red then I would suggest that you look at the Radeon RX 5700 XT. I would recommend the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti as it is just uncompromising performance, for a ridiculously high refresh rate gaming monitor like the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM.

Overall, the colors and image quality are fantastic, the insanely quick response and low input lag are also a huge deal. Even in games where you're not hitting 280FPS and let's say 120/144FPS, the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM monitor still feels incredibly smooth.

ASUS includes both FreeSync and G-SYNC compatibility, meaning AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics card owners can buy the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM monitor.

If you want to try out the dizzying heights of 280FPS then you should check out the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM monitor. You're getting a quality brand that looks after gamers, and ASUS gets to show off yet another great offering in its expanding TUF Gaming family of products.

If you're a speed freak, then you need to check out the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM monitor -- but if you aren't happy with 1080p for gaming (like me) then you are better off with a higher-end 1440p monitor at 144/165Hz. If you're exclusively playing games like Fortnite, and really wanted 280FPS -- well, you know what to do.

The Bottom Line

If you're a speed freak like me, you'll love the feel of 280Hz and its buttery smooth gaming. The ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM is the premium of 1080p 280Hz monitors, and probably the best monitor for Fortnite.
