So, i decided to upgrade my old Samsung 2243SN to new 1080p 144hz monitor. I really love this one - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-LC24FG73FQUXEN-24-Inch-Curved-Monitor/dp/B071RP6WVL but it doesn't have G-sync. I have MSI GTX 1080 GAMING X and maybe should go for a G-sync monitor? But there isn't much choice and all of this monitors are too expensive for only 1080p. The only one that suits me is - https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-PG248Q-Gaming-Monitor-USB3-0/dp/B01I3KMEAC/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1503728027&sr=1-1&keywords=pg248q and in my country the difference in price between them is almost 260$ (and they all cost about the same). I just want fast full hd (don't like 1440p) monitor for gaming, without tearing or stuttering or whatever. So, do i need G-sync or it doesn't really matter?

If G-Sync is the only thing you want to upgrade, then I would not get it. Do you experience any tearing or stuttering? If not, then its fine and you don't need G-Sync. If I would upgrade a monitor, I would upgrade more than one way, resolution (1440p ), hz (240), maybe size (27"), maybe panel type (IPS) just in example.
 
If the rest of your system is fast enough to keep up a high and consistent frame rate then you don't need gsync,it will help with very badly coded games that don't run well anyway but it's not worth it just for that,at least that's my opinion.
