i mean the cheaper i can get one the better but right now im looking at this one https://www.bestbuy.com/site/msi-optix-24-led-curved-fhd-freesync-monitor-black-red/5901703.p?skuId=5901703
and comparing it to other ones i find on amazon and walmarts website, id like to spend as little as possible so i can get get xmas presents for my family 

 

I like it.  Curved and sexy, for a good price.  Others may have their preferred monitors but if you like that one... it'll work great.  Thumbs up.

Hello so i have a 21.5 inch tv that is 30 and at least 10 years old that i am currently using as a monitor its 1080p but that id ok cause i have a 55in lg 4k smart tv where i watch all my movies and stuff, i just looking for a cheap 24-27 inch 144 hz monitor with good color, i play lots of games with good colors like ark, rust, destiny 2, black ops 4 and i also dabble in digital art. So if someone can help me find a good high refresh rate monitor for like under 400 bucks that would be great ive been looking for the past couple weeks and all the ones i have found are so expensive.

What makes you think you need 144Hz? Most of those games aren't that likely to run 144fps or higher constantly unless you have some beefy hardware to back it up.

Completely agree.  eSports has everyone thinking super high refresh rates.  Cuz 240Hz will make you good :)

 

Honestly tho, what hardware do you have?

Okay, ANY monitor now is going to have better color.

 

There are a TON of 27" 144Hz monitors under $400.  What ones are you looking at?
