Best place to buy a G-Sync monitor?

Looking to acquire a 24" or greater. Any sites which are known for selling refurb/overstock

Fry's, Micro Center, Dell, BenQ, etc have refurb products that they sell pretty frequently. BenQ does this every quarter or so, and some of their "refurbs" aren't even refurbs.

So the usual suspects then.

Yeah, pretty much. Amazon also sells refurbs so you could check them out.

Not sure what your budget is or what you're considering, but look into ultrawide monitors if you haven't already. Acer and Asus both have nice g-sync ultrawides, refurb versions of which can be found on Amazon.

I've had my Acer X34 Predator now for over 2 years and it's still amazing, look into that if you want to spend a bit more money as I think they're about $500 cheaper than they were back then. Amazon has them for a bit under $1k now.

I'm still waiting on the 4K, G-Sync widescreens with 120hz. The technology in this regards is slooooooooooow.

Not many people have the means to buy something with such specs nor have the hardware to drive such a monitor. The high end monitor prices have been slow to come down and the top specs are only increasing in price still, so I'm sure that doesn't help. Then, we have the GPU shortages and price hike....

You can use pcpartspicker.com to get an idea but beware that sometimes the sales are delayed or even no show if the deal is a short one.

I've bought a couple G Sync monitors on Acerrecertified.com. Quality has been great and you can't beat the discounted price. Check around 10am-11am est, they usually add new products around then everyday.

Also check https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/ people post deals there all the time.
