[SOLVED] which gaming monitor should I choose (144hz, 240hz)

Currently I´m playing on a 60hz monitor and I thought it was time for an upgrade.
I play games like fortnite, wow, lol, maybe little cs go.
I thought about purchasing a 240 or 144 hz monitor with freesync (since it is useable with Nvidia soon - I have a gtx 1060).

There is an offer on Amazon for Acer XF0 XF250Qbmidprx, 24.5" (UM.KX0EE.A01) for 270€ right now.
I also thought about Dell Alienware AW2518HF which would cost me around 350€ and AOC G2590PX (only 144hz) for 230€.

Any recommendations? (also monitors I haven't mentioned)
Are there any problems like high input lag or frameskipping with these monitors?
I read https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/acer-predator-xb252q-240hz-monitor,5166-6.html . Is the acer-predator-xb252q the equivalent to the XF250Q with gsync instead of freesync?
I'm not really in hurry so I could purchase a monitor, test it on any flaws and send it back if needed.

If it is indeed the same panel, yes, I would think it would work. If not, there is not guarantee that it will. Found this article explaining the differences. To me it looks like they are the same panel, just with different extras.

I did find the FX version, for sale, though.
