Is this a nice monitor for the price?

I saw this deal at Costco for this Samsung 28" UE510 UHD Monitor. I'm planning on using it with the new Xbox one x and my gaming PC. When it comes to PC gaming I will not be playing at 4k as I have gtx 970. I know that the monitor has freesync but will that decrease the performance of my gameplay if I don't have gsync. The Xbox one x will have freesync support so it will work fine with that. I found this monitor for $260 which makes me think this is a decent deal. What are your thoughts on this monitor whether if you have it or heard of it.

You can sort of do 4K on a GTX 970 if you tweak settings-- check out digital foundry's 4k on a budget series

Yeah I saw that it was a TN panel and I was iffy about it but I can't really remember if I have ever used one. So I might give it a try.

I have seen that video. I might consider it for some of my games that are a but less demanding.
