Obviously the Freesync version is better with it's 144 hz but if you are able to reliably overclock this to 120 hz is there really any reason to pay $120 more for the extra 24 hz?

freesync 2. If down tthe road you get amd graphic card, then you are set. This monitor forces you to be stuck on nvidia eco system.

I suppose that's true. Although both Nvidia and AMD have been pretty disappointing in terms of graphics card releases these past few years.

Although they use different methods the technology / technologies that controls 'G-Sync' or 'Freesync' is identical - 'Adaptive sync'. 'G-Sync' and 'Freesync' are just methods particular video card manufacturers use to communicate with the hardware of the monitor. You get the 'G-Snyc' enabled monitors if you specifically have a video card requiring G-sync. G-sync, although proprietary and less common than freesync, is beholden to Nvdia's QA standards, can achieve a higher refresh rate sync than Freesync monitors where the limitation can sometimes be in the 75hz range. In other words hardcore folks for gaming would prefer a G sync enabled card and monitor. Note that Nvidia has since backed down from requiring the Gsync module to be installed in tv's and now 'Adaptive Sync' is available as a setting on all cards via the driver settings page - making any worry pointless.

That's completely inaccurate. There are "G-Sync" certified monitors but G-Sync and Freesync are not the same at all. Monitors that are actually G-Sync (that contain the hardware module, not adaptive sync with a certification) are able to have adaptive refresh below 60Hz that freesync monitors do not support.

VA panel though, not IPS.

Have always felt the 27" flat panel was big. Is this a bit over whelming or what is it best used for? 5ms seems a bit slow for gaming no? Missing 144hz and HDR is a issue also no?

Yes and no. I have never been on AMD, yet I have always had freesync monitors(the premium is ridiculous, honestly). On my old mg278q, gsync via driver support was absolutely amazing. However, on my newish monitor(had it for roughly 5ish month), it does not play well with gsync via control panel.

If the freesync panel plays well with gsync via nvidia control panel, get it. If not, it's up to you. But me personally, I'd choose gsync, if the freesync doesn't play well.

thats a monster monitor for that price. i have the "F" version which does 144hz. but at this price, this is great!

btw, the F model does play will with gsync. you can also enable HDR with gsync on. i think it is written that it should not work. but it does!

This is agreat deal. I paid like 1200 for the f-version just 2 months ago. The f-version is better with 144hz, hdr, and compatible with both Nvidia g-sync and AMD freesync 2. But this is a great deal.
