The drivers only contain the identification and a default ICC profile. They are not required for any functionality.

I had a BenQ XL2420G, few ASUS PG279Q, few Acers and now a Dell S2716DG and while the "IPS" (AHVA) models are great general use monitors they have their bad sides as well. For the FPS genre I found that the motion blur was high on the Acer/ASUS without ULMB. On the Dell ULMB is nice, but not really required. BenQ in comparison was just really bad, even with the firmware tweaks and in either of the modes (it has a "Classic" mode and G-SYNC). It is older technology, however.
I've settled for the Dell, since it's TN and I have a calibration device. I just couldn't stand the BLB on AHVA and the excessive glow. Without good colour profiles and ReShade to correct for insane gamma I wouldn't really keep it. Some people don't like the gamma and colour shifts, but since I've been always on fast TNs I got used to it, I guess. So it's a hard choice and a matter of preference. You have to weight all the good and bad sides. There is no perfect monitor, until we get OLED to take off
