The price you pay for gsync just isn't worth it imo, especially when the games youre interested in playing primarily you want to run without any VRR at 144fps+.

I have an Nvidia GPU right now as well so i cant use freesync, but i'm also going to go AMD when the new cards launch in another month or so.
Hey thanks will go for MG278Q since I am really into gaming, and want 1ms, 144hz with good freesync range..

so should I get a mini dp to dp cable or mini dp to HDMI 2.0 cable? which would work better?

I believe for 144 Hz you will need DVI-D or DP. Can't do 144 Hz on HDMI. Check specs on google.

DVI-D cannot do 1440p 144hz so he will need Displayport, especially if he is planning to use freesync.

The MG279Q can be modded to 57-144hz, freesync range. If you're serious about playing games competitively you'd want nothing less than 144 fps in any game, but as a bare minimum have at least 100fps+ in more demanding titles. CSGO is relatively easy to run even at 1440p at max settings on a mid range card and achieve over 144fps. I average around 150-200fps with my 970 @ 1440p.

The 1ms and 4ms is not a very big difference, nothing you'd ever notice, but the image quality difference is much larger between the TN and the AHVA panel in the MG279Q. I'm getting around 1225:1 contrast ratio, 100% sRGB coverage, and a nice 2.2 gamma curve with mine calibrated. The best the MG278Q will muster is roughly 800:1 contrast ratio, probably somewhere in the 95-99% sRGB coverage, and the gamma curve can probably hit 2.2 as well but you'll surely need a colorimeter in order to calibrate it properly.

That still leaves the poor viewing angles of the TN monitor, and the hazy matte coating compared to the MG279Qs much lighter almost completely grain free matte coating.

I don't know what the price difference is between the MG278Q and MG279Q from where you're buying but right now on Newegg the difference is only $80, and for $80 the IPS version is well worth the money.

It would be best to get the mini dp to DP cable

It depends on your definition of perfect. 144hz, IPS, and G-Sync makes it perfect to me. Mine has some defects if you are looking for them, but the pros far out way the cons. My advice would be to open up Web pages, games, etc. whatever you normally use your computer for and see if you notice any deal breaking defects.

The Acers were all better then the Asus monitors that I tried. And I tried a lot fo them.

Just came back to update and let you guys know what I bought, first of all thank you all of you for helping me out, I had bought the Acer Xb271hu when it was on sale for $690 on newegg 2 weeks ago if I remember properly and had reached me today in Pakistan via forwarding service VykingShip, I am happy to say that the monitor made it here without any scratch and damage infact the box was also fit and perfect, thanks to vykingship for wrapping it up in extra protection free of cost and to my luck or what can I say it has no dead pixels, no blb and if I am not wrong no glow what you call as IPS glow...I don't know maybe I might be wrong but it does seem perfect to me and the uniformity thing, I can see is excellent too, I have attached the screenshots, but they are taken from my galaxy s3 kookoo.gif so they don't show the actual picture quality but you guys should get the idea...and yeh if you might be wondering about the manufacture date, then it is March 2016...
