So currently I have an Acer Cb281hk 4k monitor I am using for Pc gaming and other related things. The monitor works great and has free sync which is perfect for my amd graphics card. However, it only has 60hz. I'm looking to get a new monitor that is 1080p and 144hz. I have posted my old monitor for sale and someone has offered me an Hp 25x to trade for my Acer. This HP has 144hz and free sync. I was wondering if I could get an opinion on if I should accept the trade or not since my acer retails for more money.

I would depending on some factors (ips, tn, or va), and the general quality and looks (looks do matter). If it is a TN display get it (unless slightly more delay is okay then get IPS for better viewing angles and image quality... But overall it is worth it. Show me the model of both anyways

This is up to you, your monitor was almost $200 more when new than the HP one, you can always ask for the guy to add some money on his side or hold out till you find a better deal you like.
