G sync availability

So I’m new and I just found out that a 1070 ti can only run with g sync not freesync(correct me if I’m wrong). While I was searching I realized I can find a 1080p 144hz monitor with freesync for less than 200 usd... is that just not possible to do looking for g sync???

Freesync is software. G-Sync is a physical Module that Nvidia charges through the roof for. Therefore, spec for spec a monitor with G-Sync can be 200-300$ more than it's Freesync Variant.

 

Additionally, Nvidia GPUs use G-Sync and AMD GPUs use Freesync. Don't bother with Nvidia GPUs over Freesync. It requires you to have an AMD APU/GPU that supports Freesync and isn't stable.

So if I’m running a 1070 ti I won’t get to use that freesync? I’m definitely not paying 500 usd for g sync.

yes.

 

Freesync and Gsync are just features though, you dont need it to use the monitor.
