Quick OverviewModel - Asus TUF Gaming VG328H1B
Ports & Slots
The ASUS TUF Gaming VG328H1B 31.5" 16:9 Curved 165 Hz Adaptive-Sync VA Monitor is built for users who want a competitive edge. Featuring AMD Radeon FreeSync/Adaptive-Sync technology along with a fast 165 Hz refresh rate and a 1 ms response time, this monitor eliminates screen tearing and choppy frames for fluid gaming. Specs-wise, it's built with a Vertical Alignment (VA) panel, which has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution, a 3000:1 static contrast ratio, and a 250 cd/m² brightness rating. Once it's connected to a system via HDMI or VGA, you can adjust its versatile stand to best fit your viewing preference. Otherwise, users can install an optional VESA mount, stand, or arm if needed.
AMD Radeon FreeSync Premium and Adaptive-Sync technologies sync the display's refresh rate with your graphics card's frame rate output to reduce screen tearing, stuttering, and ghosting for a more fluid experience.
Please note that these sync functions are only available via HDMI and within 48-165 Hz.
A fast 165 Hz refresh rate combined with ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) technology, which enables a 1 ms Motion Picture Response Time (MPRT), provides users with sharper details and more responsive movements.
Flicker-Free and Ultra-Low Blue Light technologies help to reduce eyestrain and fatigue over extended viewing

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
