More interesting for gamers that want crazy refresh rates, however, is the MSI Optix MAG251RX. This monitor keeps the 1080p resolution and IPS panel, but brings refresh rates up to a crazy 240 Hz with up to 1 ms response time. MSI has also “upgraded” the Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology up to NVIDIA’s G-Sync. There’s HDR 400 support (don’t read that much into that though; it’s the bare minimum for entry and far from a quality HDR experience). It also sports USB-C connectivity and RGB customization on the back of the monitor via MSI’s Mystic Light software. The MSI Optix MAG251RX will be available for a still conscious $359.99, provided you didn’t stop reading at the mention of a 1080p panel.
