Help!...Can't decide on which monitor to buy..

Hi All,

So I've decided to ditch the TV gaming idea and will now go for a monitor but can't decide between:

Acer xb270hu

Asus rog swiftt pg278q

Asus MG279q

Are there any others better out there tan these 3? I have up to £700 to spend.

I will be running a Zotac GTX980ti playing mainly MMo's and some high end FPS.

Thanks

Well the Asus MG279q is a FreeSync monitor, which isn't exactly ideal for an Nvidia GPU.

With an Nvidia GPU it would be best to get a G-Sync monitor so that you could use their adaptive framerate tech. Your other two choices are ideal IMHO.

As WYP said the Predator or Swift will be the way to go

I'd get the Predator. Lot of people, including one on this forum, have had serious issues with the Swift. Haven't heard anything bad about the Predator yet.
