What say you on the merits of G-SYNC monitors, FreeSync monitors, vs just raw frame-throwing horsepower to prevent tearing?
I've had my eye on one of the 34" curved monitors recently (specifically, the LG 34UC89G-B) but I've been staggered by the cost premium commanded by the 89G-B model (G-SYNC) over the 79G-B model (FreeSync), which runs to something like an extra $500 for the privilege of having G-SYNC.
I have a 980ti in my system at the moment, so FreeSync is no good to me. On the other hand, I don't particularly feel like paying nearly double the price for a monitor that is essentially identical except for the G-SYNC chip. Given that I've never had G-SYNC before my current monitor (Acer XB270HU), I'm wondering if the FreeSync monitor would be sufficient, as long as I throw enough frames out of my video card to prevent egregious tearing.
Is anyone running a FreeSync monitor on an nVidia card? What's the experience like?
