G Sync is worth having?

I'm looking to upgrade my main monitor. Right now I have a 1440p Crossover 27 inch IPS screen but it's only 60hz and I would like to have 144hz or more. Not a pro gamer but I'd like the smoothness of higher frames. I'd like to stay with IPS but from what I've been seeing there are far more Freesync screens that G Sync and the price gap is substantial. My ultimate question is:

Should I but a G Sync screen to go along with my 1070ti or not worry about G Sync and get one of the Freesync monitors since they check off all the boxes of things I want minus G Sync.

if you're only using a 1070ti, why go 1440p? My rig can barely maintain 1440/144 on high/ultra in some games.... unless you like to play on med/low

G-sync is great. You should absolutely invest in a display that is, AT LEAST, G-sync compatible. If budget is permissive enough, go with a "true" G-sync monitor because it'll have been built fit for purpose, with well tuned overdrive at all frequencies throughout the VRR range, smoothness, and guaranteed low frametrate compensation. If there's a monetary constraint, look for G-sync compatible monitors.

Presently I have a 1070ti but whenever I upgrade that It will be Nvidia. I usually get around 100fps on most games at high settings. I've already got 2 1440p monitors so I don't want to mix and match resolutions.

VRR is definitely worth having, even with competitive gaming in mind, you get smooth errorfree visual data without input lag to aim with.

Ok, So my question is, since I have an Nvidia gpu, and I go for a cheaper option such as a Freesync monitor, can I still implement VRR? Or do I have to get a G Sync monitor to really reap the benefits?

Some monitors using freesync are what they call g sync compatible which means that that g sync can work on them
A quick search on google came up with this https://www.pcgamer.com/g-sync-compa...sync-monitors/
