Default 27" 1440p, 144Hz, IPS, G-Sync Monitor

Hi all,

Just wanted to get some help and opinions on the best monitor to purchase based on the above requirements.

I've got a 1080 TI FTW3 and will be looking to upgrade from my current BenQ 24" 144Hz monitor.

Having had the taste of playing on a 144Hz monitor, I can't go back to anything lower.

Therefore, I'll need something that's:

1) 144 Hz & above
2) 27"
3) 1440p minimum
4) Ideally not curved
5) G Sync
6) Below $800 AUD preferably

A current shortlist of monitors I'm quite interested in:
- AOC AGON AG271QG
- ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q
- Viewsonic XG2703-GS
- Dell S2716DG
- Acer Predator XB271HU

Anyonr have any experience with the monitors listed above? Any other recommendations?

Cheers

Personally not a fan of Gsync and owned the ROG Swift before. If it's not over budget down under I'd say that one.

They're pretty much the same panel with a different name. Only thing I can see different without digging too heavily into specs is the ROG requires an overclock to get to 165Hz (via their OSD) and the Viewsonic does not.
