Top 5 Best Monitors For RX 6800 XT in 2022:

1. Samsung Odyssey G70A – Best Overall

SPECS:

  • Refresh Rate: 144Hz
  • Response Time: 1MS
  • Resolution: 4K UHD
  • Display Size: 28 inch
  • Panel Type: VA
  • Variable Refresh Rate Tech: G-Sync and FreeSync Premium
  • VESA Support: 100×100

Some might argue that a 4K 144Hz monitor is a bit overkill for the RX 6800 XT, but I disagree. If you pair it with the right CPU and are willing to tweak some settings, you’ll easily reach that point in most AAA titles. If you’re up for that, the Samsung Odyssey G70A is a great monitor to go for.

Along with 4K at 144Hz with 1MS response time, you also get HDR400, good viewing angles, and 300 nit peak brightness. So, it’s a quick, vibrant, and impressive panel all in all. What about build quality? The stand allows for swivel, tilt, pivot, and height adjustment. If you want to mount it on a wall, you can do so with a 100×100 VESA mount too.

In addition, it also has two front-facing light panels and both G-Sync and FreeSync Premium. So, down the line if you decide to switch to Team Green, you’ll still have adaptive refresh rate support. All in all, this is an excellent 4K 144Hz monitor for your RX 6800 XT.

Pros

  • Great picture quality
  • Includes FreeSync Premium
  • Two front-facing lights

Cons

  • Expensive

2. ViewSonic OMNI XG2405 – Best on a Budget

SPECS:

  • Refresh Rate: 144Hz
  • Response Time: 1MS
  • Resolution: Full HD (1920×1080)
  • Display Size: 24 inch
  • Panel Type: IPS
  • Variable Refresh Rate Tech: FreeSync Premium
  • VESA Support: 100×100

For those who are on a budget when hunting for a monitor to use with their RX 6800 XT, the ViewSonic OMNI XG2405 is an option worth considering. It’s a 1080p 144Hz monitor with AMD FreeSync Premium. All of this on a stunning IPS panel with full sRGB color gamut coverage and wide 178° viewing angles.

In terms of build quality and user-friendly features, you get an ergonomic stand with 120mm height adjustment, 90° pivot and swivel, and tilt adjustment. You also get black stabilization for improving visibility in dark in-game areas and some pre-calibrated picture presets like FPS, RTS, MOBA, and more. These (and other) settings can be accessed in the OSD using five buttons at the back of the monitor.

The RX 6800 XT certainly isn’t easy on the wallet, so it’s viable that you want to save money on your monitor. In that case, the ViewSonic OMNI XG2405 is a good choice because it offers nice features without going overboard with extras. For around $200, it provides a great bang for your buck.

Pros

  • Great value for money
  • Ultra-thin bezels
  • Display includes a matte anti-glare coating

Cons

  • Peak brightness of only 250 nits

3. Monoprice Dark Matter – Best Ultrawide

SPECS:

  • Refresh Rate: 165Hz
  • Response Time: 4MS
  • Resolution: UWQHD (3440x1440P)
  • Display Size: 34 inch
  • Panel Type: VA
  • Variable Refresh Rate Tech: FreeSync
  • VESA Support: 75×75

The 21:9 aspect ratio isn’t for everyone. Not all games support it, and you often get to see thick black bars on the sides. But if you’re up for it, it can be an entirely different kind of gaming experience, blessing you with an extended FoV. This ultrawide from Monoprice, belonging to the Dark Matter series, is a great choice in that regard.

For the display, you get UWQHD (3440x1440P) resolution with a 165Hz refresh rate and a 4MS response time. Plus, Quantum LCD tech means it also provides an overall wider gamut of colors along with better brightness and contrast.

All in all, the Monoprice Dark Matter ultrawide will provide you with a great gaming experience with the RX 6800 XT. Although it’s fairly expensive, there’s a lot to like here, with the high-quality display, the fast refresh rate, and stealthy design.

Pros

  • 165Hz refresh rate
  • Design doesn’t scream “gamer”
  • 1500R curve

Cons

  • Relatively slow response time

4. Sceptre C305B-FUN200W – Best All-White

SPECS:

  • Refresh Rate: 200Hz
  • Response Time: 1MS
  • Resolution: 2560×1080
  • Display Size: 30 inch
  • Panel Type: VA
  • Variable Refresh Rate Tech: FreeSync Premium
  • VESA Support: 75×75

A good ultrawide monitor can often elevate your gaming experience to the next level, but they tend to be expensive. This model from Sceptre manages a good balance between cost and features. It has a 1500R curved display, 200Hz refresh rate, AMD Freesync Premium, and 1MS response time.

Based on the game you’re playing, you can also switch between various presets like FPS, RTS, and MOBA and also enable blue light shift for lower eye strain. It can also display two sources side-by-side at the same time, which makes it great for multitasking and office work. The stand is sturdy enough but there’s always the option to use a 75×75 VESA mount too.

In a nutshell, don’t consider this monitor if you’re solely dedicated to competitive gaming. In that case, you might be better off going for the XG2405 or the PG259QN. Instead, this monitor is meant for users who prefer gameplay immersion over performance. There’s “FUN” in the name!

Pros

  • Includes AMD FreeSync Premium
  • Suitable for all-white setup
  • Super fast 200Hz refresh rate

Cons

  • Would’ve been better with a higher resolution

5. ASUS ROG Swift PG259QN – Best for FPS Games

SPECS:

  • Refresh Rate: 360Hz
  • Response Time: 1MS
  • Resolution: Full HD (1920×1080)
  • Display Size: 24.5 inch
  • Panel Type: IPS
  • Variable Refresh Rate Tech: FreeSync and G-Sync
  • VESA Support: 100×100

Going from 60Hz to 144Hz is generally a huge jump for most people. Now, imagine going up to 360Hz! That’s what the ASUS ROG Swift PG259QN provides. Besides being crazy fast, the 24.5-inch 1080p IPS display is a delight to look at thanks to 178° viewing angles, HDR10, and 400-nit peak brightness.

The stand it comes with is ergonomic, offering 120mm height adjustment, 25° swivel, tilt, and 90° pivot! Your neck will certainly thank you for this. Adding to the premium feel, there’s an RGB-illuminated logo of ROG at the back which you can sync with your other AuraSync-enabled devices.

With a pixel density of 90 PPI, you don’t need to worry about pixelation either, making it suitable for both work and play. There are also other ASUS utilities packed into this monitor such as GamePlus for custom crosshairs and FPS tracking, pre-calibrated picture presets, and black stabilization.

Everything considered, this is unapologetically a high-end hardcore gaming display, and not really meant for those who prioritize maximum value for money. If you’re looking for every competitive advantage you can get and not shying away from paying extra for it, the ASUS ROG Swift PG259QN won’t disappoint you.

Pros

  • Cutting-edge 360Hz refresh rate
  • Includes ASUS Eye Care tech for minimum eye fatigue
  • Ergonomic stand for best comfort

Cons

  • Expensive

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does the RX 6800 XT Compare with the RTX 3080?

It’s not a good idea to make a side-by-side spec comparison of the two because they’re based on different architectures. Fortunately, Hardware Unboxed has done us all a huge favor by creating a neat 50-game benchmark comparison of both the cards, which you can watch here.

Which CPU is Best to Pair With RX 6800 XT?

If you haven’t yet decided on a CPU, it can be quite a big decision to make. The Intel i7-12700K is a good choice. Or even AMD’s own Ryzen 5 5600. Both are latest generation CPUs and will complement the RX 6800 XT quite well. In the GPU buying guides for both these CPUs, I recommended the RX 6800 XT as the best overall choice.

How to Adjust Monitor Brightness Without OSD Buttons?

If you like to adjust monitor brightness often, it can be annoying to use the OSD again and again. There are software tools available that can let you do it hands-free. Check out Monitorian for Windows and MonitorControl or Lunar if you’re running macOS.

Wrap Up

Your monitor choice boils down to two main factors: resolution and refresh rate. Both features add to the purchase cost, and you must aim for a delicate balance between the best gaming experience and value for money.

Although my overall best recommendation is the Samsung Odyssey G70A—4K at 144Hz with a 28-inch screen is just too much fun to pass up—I’d advise you to buy a monitor according to your use case and preferences.

I hope this article guided you in the right direction towards building your dream setup! Happy streaming!
