Cannot decide between monitors

Hi all, really struggling to make a decision between the monitors I have listed below.  I had to send back two Gigabyte Fl27Q monitors because of awful coil whine.  So, I have lost faith with them.  I am mounting the monitor on an arm so ergonomics are not important.  I do game a bit, but Overwatch is about the only FPS, with the rest a bit slower paced.  The rest of the time it's just general browsing etc (hence the coil whine doing my head and in). I would like something that's relatively easy to configure and leave pretty much in one setting.

 

The Dell was where I was initially drawn to for its all-round abilities and it's Super Fast mode can be left on across a range of refresh rates with no real issue.  However, the HU review of the MSI had me pause before I pressed the buy button.  Acer nitro seem to get great reviews at rtings.com, but cannot find much else.

 

Dell S2721DGFA £319

Acer Nitro XV272U KV £340

MSI Optix MAG274QRF-QD £360

 

If it was your money, which one would you go with?

 

Cheers
