Yeah, definitely go for the Acer mate. I have the ASUS Swift and for a monitor that costs almost 4 times as much as my other monitors, for it to develop a dead pixel within a month of use is outrageous! Have had my cheaper BenQ monitors for years without any issues at all!

That one on Amazon is 1080p, the one most people talk about is the 1440p one.

I should mention that a friend of mine owns 3 Eizo Forris monitors and he couldn't be happier with the colours and the input lag (he's a CSGO addict, but also plays games like Diablo, WoW, Civ)

I think the monitor in the link is the old TN panel HA not HU at the end of the model number (and as Davva says it's 1080 not 1440).
I just got a Acer XB270HU bprz 27-inch (the IPS one with g-sync) and it's effing lovely. I'm driving it with a 980 strix.
I would seriously consider one of the ips Benq monitors at 144hz, i found that running the acer in gsync is lovely but it looks just as nice with the monitor locked at 144hz. So if budget is a concern save on the gsync and just go for 144 ips. imho

You need to make sure the Amazon one isn't the 1080p version. the scan one is the 1440p version.

That could be the reason for the price difference. look up the full product number.

regarding MMOs, I play mostly rpgs and I enjoy the 144hz refresh rate. I would argue that the 144hz refresh rate contributes to a much better experience while playing Rts and rpgs.
Even dragging the mouse pointer around feels smoother with higher refresh rates. While playing MMos and Rts type games, you move the camera all over the map often and gsync + 144hz refresh rate while doing that = awesome experience.

Lastly, be careful when you buy the monitor so as to buy the right predator. Acer has slapped the brand name predator on every thing they churn out. What you want is the acer predator xb270hu. The one in that link isnt this monitor.
