The MSI Oculux NXG253R matches its 360 Hz competition in every way and takes things a step further by being the fastest monitor we’ve ever tested. If you’re looking for the highest possible speeds to finish a premium gaming PC build, this monitor is it.
In today’s competitive eSports arenas, the need for speed is all consuming. Players with super-human reflexes and extreme gaming skills look for every advantage they can get over their opponents. Obviously, a fast PC with the latest graphics hardware is a must. The top graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD can pump out incredibly high frame rates but to take advantage of this power, you’ll need an equally capable monitor.
Alienware, Asus and Acer have met this challenge with 25-inch IPS monitors with 1080p resolution that run comfortably at 360 Hz. To this elite group, we add the MSI Oculux NXG253R ($600 as of writing). It has the same core specifications as the others and includes Nvidia’ G-Sync, alongside ultra-low motion blur (ULMB) and Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer. With input lag this low, it’s the best gaming monitor for today’s speed demon.
