I narrowed it down to 2 monitors, I basically need HDMI and Display port since I play PC and PS4/Xbox One games and I don't wanna complicate things since Displayport/HDMI converters sometimes don't work on consoles. I want a 27 inch monitor because I had a 24 inch BenQ monitor before so I would prefer something larger this time considering I have played games on a 50 inch 22ms input lag 60hz Sony W800b TV PC games and console for 1.5 years now.

Here are the monitors.

I would prefer buying the Acer Predator since it has GSync but the 27 inch version is only avaliable in Europe now, this site does Internal shipping but I contacted their support and the total price for it will be 805$ CAD, practically double the price of the AOC monitor.

Why does the AOC monitor say Contrast Ratio
50,000,000:1 contrast

The Acer only has - Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 (Typ)
- Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 10,000,000 So would the AOC monitor be brighter and have better picture quality?

I guess it mostly comes down to if GSync is worth it or not, I really wanted to try GSync. The only game I play that I notice screen tearing in some areas is Star Trek Online, all the other main multiplayer/mmo games on PC I play, I don't notice any. Still, I could play a game in the future and notice screen tearing.

What would you reccommened I buy? Price is not an issue for me but if I did get the AOC I will still have 370$ left over, if I get the Acer then I will have 20$ left over.
