Hi so my first PC build is comng up and i already have my list of components.

I'm aiming for 1440p 144hz and i after a lot of research im left with these 3 options:

Samsung C27HG70: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/monitors/gaming/27--chg70-gaming-monitor-with-quantum-dot-lc27hg70qqnxza/#specs
Acer XV272U PBMIIPRZX: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.HX2AA.P03
AOC Agon AG273QCX: https://eu.aoc.com/en/gaming-monitors/ag273qcx

Looking at the specifications i found this stuff:
Samsung: Curved, Quantum Dot, VA, 10bit color, HDR600, 3000:1 native contrast. 125% sRGB, 92% Adobe RGB. I read online about some overshoot issues with this display
Acer: IPS, 10bit color, HDR400, 1000:1 native contrast, 100M:1 dynamic cntrast. 95% DCI-P3.
AOC: Curved, VA, HDR400, 8bit color, 3000:1 native contrast, 50M:1 dynamic contrast. 122& sRGB, 99% Adobe RGB.

They all claim to be 1ms response time.
The samsung one achieves 1ms via a preset that causes overshoot. I don't know about the others.

Does anyone know which one is the best overall? Not considering the various prices, just the overall best image quality and color reproduction, considering the artifacts too.

I considered getting this MSI monitor too, but its almost exactly ike te others but without HDR: https://www.msi.com/Monitor/Optix-MPG27CQ

So... help?

I have this exact Samsung monitor
its very good and I love it, but hdr it is not. it only gets up to 350 nits.
i would say the acer cause ips AND 144hz? but 1ms is just not it.
trying 1ms on ips will get you lots of nasty artifacts but color is important.
the aoc seems a little off for me with 8 bit color

i'd personally go for Samsung and its what i'd suggest, but just know
it doesn't do hdr, and enabling it will just make the game look washed out.

but colors do look good, I have not seen a single overshoot problem or artifacts.
