It comes down to what games you play and the FPS you get at a certain resolution. In your sig it says you use a 970, if you went to a 1440p monitor then Gsync(or freesync for that matter) would provide a benefit to you because you won't be running crazy high FPS. Now if you play counter strike or something similar, it would be useless because the input lag it adds will hurt you more than benefit you since your FPS will be far higher than any monitor can currently run at. Any game running at a high fps with a monitor running at a high refresh rate will remove stutter. It's when you get multi gpus you will introduce some stutter no matter what FPS it is. An awesome picture, well that rules out TN panels. Look at a IPS panel.

Ah that makes sense, cheers! If it helps, the games/series I play include: The Witcher (3), GTA (5), Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Alien Isolation etc. I purposefully exclude Fallout 4 because currently it's a mess IMO, so a poor rule of thumb. No Counterstrike.

GPU upgrade plan will be a '1070/1080(Ti)' Pascal.

So it won't matter if I pick a Gsync or FreeSync monitor then, I mean, if I follow you guys I don't need the functions that Gsync has to offer? The ASUS MG279Q is cheaper and an IPS monitor.

With those games you won't be getting extreme FPS at 1440p so yeah a Gsync monitor would work for you and benefit you and you won't be needing crazy low input lag since you don't play FPS games.

Doing a quick google on that monitor and plenty of issues I see with it. Lots of people reporting panel issues which seems to be a trend in Asus high end monitors using GSYNC.

I play the occasional FPS, but not often. The model I mentioned is a FreeSync one, not Gsync maybe it's got less issues. Would it be of equal benefit to me?

Ah thought i read GYSNC.. and no it would not be if you wanted to take advantage of Gsync. It would just be a high refresh rate monitor that's more expensive than a normal non G/Fsync monitor.

Okay so I'll need an IPS G-Sync monitor eh, seeing as I will take advantage of the technology? Now I ask for recommendations

think the cheapest one off the top of my head for Gsync/IPS is the Acer XB270HU

Nice looking monitor, reading up on it now. It's a hefty 800 Euro though - but well worth it, it seems! More expensive then the ROG Swift, but like you said it's got problems (I think Diceh. mentioned his troubles going through several somewhere here earlier?), so I'd like to avoid that like the plague.

Is there anyone here with first-hand experience with the Acer Predator XB270HU 144Hz G-Sync IPS? Reviews look favourable.

Ya he went through like 6-7 of those. I'd keep looking for a cheaper one. That was just off the top of my head and what I have available here in the US is probably little different for you.

And pretty sure Dice had the Freesync variant of the same Acer. He loved it and said was superior to the Swift in every way

Off topic for sure, but love the display photo. Legion would be proud.
