It's a valid concern.

G-Sync is not only about the variable refresh rate.
- G-Sync modules include a low persistence mode called ULMB (see my previous post for more info on ULMB)
- G-Sync monitors are 144Hz capable.
- G-Sync monitors are TN panels with low input lag and fast pixel transition speed.

Furthermore being able to hit 60 fps is irrelevant.
A competitive player needs 120+ fps
Not 60+

And the most exigent competitive players are playing on CRT monitors at low resolution driven to higher refresh rates. For example 800x600@200Hz.
That's the equivalent, in terms of motion quality, to ULMB at 200Hz

I for one have the same concerns as the OP and I'm not the only one.

For example:

Post from someone in another forum:
Your ROG Swift PG278Q monitor looks very nice. Are you planning on supporting 1280x720 (720p) through simple pixel doubling (since 2560/2 = 1280, and 1440/2 = 720) so that we can run 720p content with a nice, sharp and crystal clear image rather than the blur fest when scaling with interpolation?

From an engineering standpoint, this would be quite easy to achieve (including no input lag; pixel doubling doesn't need any processing overhead worth mentioning.) Personally I'm intending to buy BenQ's XL2720G because it's a 1080p panel. Your PG278Q is a 1440p panel and thus will result in a hefty FPS drop with future computer games. But if the PG278Q would be able to display a sharp, pixel-doubled 720p mode, I'd go for that instead.

This person as the same concerns as me and the OP.

One can be a competitive player without being a professional.

How important is competitive play to you? I don't see too many competitive players gaming on 27" displays.

Not that a competitive player cranks up everything to max settings and plays on max resolutions.
Not even sure which games you wanna play competitive.

I actually also want to buy a G-Sync monitor.

For now i thought about getting the BenQ XL2420G.
Seems to be the best choice for a competitive gamer if the response time / input lag is as low as the XL2411T.

Though the ROG is also interesting..
