As for synchronization type, if you get GTX 1060, you need gsync monitor. (Freesync is AMD's)
As for refresh rate, many will tell you how super great it is to get >100Hz and others will tell you they cannot tell the difference between 60 and 100 (myself included). So the best way would be to borrow or try in some other way whether you can percieve any difference at all.
