G-Sync on highish end graphics card?

Hey guys,

Ok so I'm 15 so money is a bit tight with my 2 part time jobs, I'm getting a RTX 2080 for Christmas and some money I guess. My problem starts when I don't know what monitor to get as of now I'm on a peasants 1080p 60hz TN panel. In Australia (where I live) its about $900 AUD (650 USD) for a 1440p 144hz ips 4ms display which is the ASUS XB271HU, however; for 600 AUD (430 USD) I can get basically the same monitor with wider bezels and NO G-Sync.

I have been looking to upgrade my PSU for overclocking with my graphics card because as of now I only have a 700 watt for my i7-8600 and 32 GB ram at 3200MHZ

 

Basically wondering if the G-Sync is worth 300 AUD more on a 'highish' gaming rig

Worth is subjective. Depends if you find it worth it or not.
Personally, with a build like that, I'd pay it. If you want to save some money, go with the cheaper monitor.

You don't need to upgrade your PSU.

Do you notice tearing and stuttering on your current monitor? Do you notice ghosting and bleed? If you don't notice these smaller details, than I don't think it's worth dropping the extra coin on it. G-Sync is great because it eliminates most any problems you'll have due to syncing with your GPU for seamless gameplay, but its premium price at your price point doesn't seem worth it to me tbh. 

 

I live in the US so prices are cheaper, but I bought a 2560x1440 27" 144Hz/1ms G-Sync VA panel for $350...

It's clear you're going to pay a lot in G-Sync tax. And you'll be stuck with one vendor as well. I wouldn't recommend it, especially if you have to pay THAT MUCH.

700W is more than enough to overclock all of your components simultaneously to a crisp.

The problem is that this is an nVidia product and scoring any nVidia product a "zero" is also highly predictive of the number of nVidia products the reviewer will receive for review in the future.

Only yours, you don't shitpost on the same level that we can, mainly because this thread is finally dead and should be locked.

I wasn't wrong. It's extremely rare that I am. I provided sources as well. Different devs can disagree. Further, we now have confirmed discrepancy from Twitter about he use of the pre-release 1080 driver in AMD's demo despite the release 1080 driver having been out a week prior.

You apparently haven't seen his responses to questions on YouTube. He is very condescending and aggressive in his comments with which there is little justification. He acts totally different in his videos. I don't necessarily care for this content style and there is nothing really unique about him or his channel. His endless dick jokes and toilet humor are annoying as well.

-Acer XB271HU

-Asus PG279Q

 

Are two very good choices with a lot of recommendations, if you can afford a G-Sync monitor i would go for it because if you are purchasing a 2080 then you are not likely to be changing the GPU any time soon.
