What's the best Monitor for an Xbox Series X?

What would the best monitor be for someone getting an Xbox Series X soon? I’m off to college in August and I’m planning on using it in a dorm room. Ideally I’d like it to be 27-28 inches, and take advantage of Xbox Series X features,(VRR, 120 FPS, 4k[?]) My budget is 500-600 USD

I’ve been looking into the same thing recently since I do most of my gaming at my desk, while my wife watches TV. I don’t have any specific recommendations, but this rtings article might have some starting points.

1440p at 120Hz.

4k is nice but most Series X games run natively at below 4k for 60FPS. ITs more 1080-1440 actually. I play series on on both sometimes but mainly my 32" Monitor.

The smaller size (27 - 28) kind of limits what’s available.

I’ve been curious about this as well. Does anyone have any thoughts about this monitor for Series X and PS5 consoles? Asus tuf

If your budget is $500-600 then you’re not going to be able to get a monitor that will support hdmi 2.1 for 4K 120 hz. As someone who has one of these monitors, yes it’s incredible and well worth the money, but they are pricey. If I was you I would stick with a 1440p 120hz monitor like @ShinMegamiTenseiX said. The one that I was using for a while until I got my new monitor was the LG GN800-B. It’s around $300 right now

But if you are dead set on getting 4K 120hz and won’t settle for anything else, these are certified by Xbox for the best hdmi 2.1 monitors.

I got the Acer XV282K, and it was worth every penny spent.
