Monitor recommendations. What's good?

No. Pascal cards support FreeSync over DP only.

This is part of how I justified buying a 3070 for my living room build (TV supports FreeSync) instead of just moving my 1080 into that system.

Thanks! I'll just have to use Vsync until I can get my paws on a 3080. I can't stand screen tearing.

Brother is looking to upgrade from an ancient monitor. He picked out this one to go with the PC linked in the build a PC thread.

His main concerns are if the whole freesync/gsync not being mentioned means he should look for a different one. (how bad would things like screen shearing be?)

At that price-point, GSync is a no-go (monitor needs specific hardware for Gsync, which pushes the price up) and you'll likely get better bang-for-buck by skipping Freesync and relying on good ole software-VSync.

My concern is that if you're dead-set on Freesync, you're going to be sacrificing other features/performance to hit the price point.

Or you could go with this $229 4k 28 inch freesync anti flicker and blue light monitor. It is what I am using and loving right now:

BH has the LG 27” OLED up

For $3000. For another $500 you can get the 77” CX OLED TV. Granted these are “Pro” monitors more targeting creative pros.

Wow, $3K for 27 inches is a little nuts. I'd expect at least a 30" to 32" screen for that, which is typical professional size.

Probably, those are using true RGB pixels, so they'll likely be substantially better for accurate color and precise calibtration, but they sure aren't shy about charging for it.

There is a 32” model coming as well which probably will be $5K
