overclock the Acer to 75hz?
my GPU doesn't have freesync..
get the LG one to maybe get another GPU in the future with freesync and overlock it to 75hz? (only goes to 60hz without freesync)
which one is better for first person shooters?
try for v-sync at 75hz with 4ms response time(Acer), or wait for freesync at 75hz with 5ms response time(LG)?
any testimonies from actual owners?

Thanks

If you're mainly playing FPS's, I'd save up for a 120hz/144hz or purchase a secondhand ASUS VG248QE.

If you really wanna choose between those two, I'd go for the LG.

Sorry for being picky but can i ask why would you say go for the LG?
futureproofing?

thanks :)

ps. i play FPS but offline mostly, only thing i play online is DOTA 2. I'm more of a Metro series FPS kinda guy rather than CS GO or similar
