Be careful - that's not a great gaming monitor. Slow response time (thus input lag), lots of blur, and FreeSync at 72Hz isn't taking advantage of the tech. And it has a really narrow FreeSync range, too.

Yeah, but it's better for slashing.

There's a ROG Strix curved monitor that much better supports freesync, but I think it's double the price.
