Hi since i decided to upgrade my gpu from 1080 to rtx 3070 i decided to upgrade my monitor from a 144hz gsync monitor to a 240hz but freesync. Before i was to scared to upgrade my monitor because i wasnt sure if i can get enough fps i play games like cs go , valorant etc where hz counts, but fps can be also really high. My question is that if i buy a monitor Dell Alienware AW2521HFLA ( also i know there is a model which is gray and both g sync and free sync compatible in the same price range but preferably i would want the white one which color is only in this model) not compatible w nvidia g sync because it only has free sync will it really downgrade my preformance or will rtx 3070 balance that out ?

Thanks for all your answers

Not performance per se but visual acuity.

Only games that can push 240 fps+ on High settings constantly are CSGO, Valorant, Dota, League(with rubber-banding). (These games are more CPU intensive rather than GPU)

If you're going to play open world singleplayer games on Max graphical settings (in-game + NVCP), I suggest sticking with 144hz, so it's always smooth under GSync or when its deactivated.
