PC & Xbox One X Monitor Recommendations


I'm looking to purchase a new monitor and could really use some help narrowing it down to something that fits my needs.  I have an Xbox One X and a PC with a GTX 970.  Here are the specs I'm basically looking for:


* 27" 
* 1440p
* 144hz
* 1ms response time
* at least displayport 1.2
* at least hdmi 2.0 (unless hdmi 1.4 can run 1440p at 120hz?)
* prefer bezel less design though not a deal breaker
* freesync to keep cost down
* I would prefer to have speakers, though this is not necessary (sometimes I'm too lazy to put on my headphones)
* price under $500 though I could go a bit higher if I had to in order to get the perfect monitor


I recently purchased an LG 27UK600-W which is a 4k "HDR" 60hz monitor and it looks amazing on my Xbox One X.  Unfortunately when I played Rocket League on it, I felt slower.  I'm still able to compete at Champ 1 / Champ 2, but feeling slow is really frustrating.  I thought I could deal with it, but I spend probably 50% of my time playing Rocket League, 25% playing single player games (RDR2, Assassins Creed, etc.), and the last 25% playing FPS games (Black Ops 4 right now), so competitive gaming is mostly what I play right now.  The LG 27UK600-W is an IPS panel with a claimed 5ms response time which honestly it does feel pretty quick, but I would also like to start playing Rocket League on my PC at 144hz.


So here's my rundown:


* I mostly play Rocket League and various FPS games so input lag / response time has to be very fast.  I like IPS panels because they look better and are usually more color accurate, though I would take a TN or VA panel over an IPS panel if the IPS increases latency too much.
* PC I want to run at 1440p 144hz mainly just for Rocket League
* Xbox One X I want to run at 1440p 120hz (I know 120hz isn't a huge benefit on the Xbox, but there are still some advantages to it)

Monitors I've kind of looked into:
Pixio PX276 $350
MSI Optix MAG27CQ $400
Asus MG278Q $500
BenQ Zowie XL2730 (this monitor is hard to find in stock, but I think I found 1) $550
Acer 27" XZ271U $550
Asus ROG Strix XG32VQ $630
Samsung CHG7 $500


Alright, sorry for the book.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  I may try adjusting a few settings on my LG monitor to see if I can make Rocket League feel a bit faster, but at this point I think I'm leaning towards a faster 144hz monitor.
