Viewsonic XG2401 vs Acer XB241H vs Asus MG248Q

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
All are 24" 1080p, 144hz, with Viewsonic having Freesync (AMD), Acer with G-Sync (Nvidia) and Asus with Adaptive Sync (what is it?).

Which of these 3 monitors are the best for gaming AND general use (browsing, perhaps a bit of uni work that may include illustrator work/editing). Which of these 3 have the best image and colour quality and accuracy?

Well most importantly you need to pick one that matches your video card. If you have an Nvidia card, then there's not much to think about if those are your only choices - obviously go with the XB241H. Adaptive sync on the MG248Q is the basic, non-brand name for Freesync and is only compatible with AMD cards atm.

To be honest, G-Sync and Freesync are just added bonuses for me. Of these 3, and also the LG 24GM77, they seem to be the best TN monitors for their price.

I'm looking for the monitor that's best to use for games AND also best in image and colour quality/accuracy for a TN panel. I would love to buy an IPS panel, but they are pretty expensive, and not exactly ideal for gaming. Initially, I was trying to look for a monitor that was 1080p, 144hz, with G-Sync, however, there doesn't seem to be many out there at the moment with decent image and colour. So, I then gave up and started looking at ones without G-Sync, and then actually came across the 3 listed here, and also the LG 24GM77 (which I didn't list).

I am in the middle of building a new computer and will be using a GTX 1070, however if a freesync/adaptive sync monitor is better than the XB241H, then I am happy to lose out on the sync feature and perhaps consider an AMD GPU later down the road.

Is there a difference between Freesync and Adaptive Sync?
