The requirements are 240HZ and g-sync, someone said that they are identical but...... I wanted to buy ACER one but it is out of stock and the ASUS is like 50-100 pounds expensiver :/ that's pretty much for me but I will manage it
BenQ is shitty right? The colours are terrible as far as I know.

These are currently in stock on Amazon right now in your price range as of this time of writing:

240Hz G-SYNC in UK
- ASUS ROG PG258Q on Amazon.co.uk at about £500
- AOC AGON AF251G on Amazon.co.uk at about £485

Other notes: The ACER XB252Q is on Amazon.co.uk for about £450 but out of stock as of November 4, 2017. Also, BenQ Zowie XL2546 (~£450) is great for everything except default colors (it's optimized for eSports and brighter shadows) but the colors can be fixed with a colorimeter if colors are important for everyday computer use. If you use an NVIDIA graphics card, be noted that BenQ Zowie does not have G-SYNC.

I was really into the Acer one but it got out of stock :/ and yeah I am playing CS:GO competitively, but is the difference with BENQ and lets say the asus that much? I have nvidia gpu so the g-sync thing would suit me, ME wants better colors too :F BenQ is not that good for that as far as I know x

NVIDIA does the calibration for all of them, and it's the same panel. So all 240Hz G-SYNC monitors are currently (at the moment) very similar overdrive-wise, colors-wise and lag-wise. Some differences due to manufacturers but it is the same panel with pretty much the same NVIDIA VRR logic (in G-SYNC mode).

It really showed itself when AOC later came out with a 240Hz G-SYNC monitor after their initial 240Hz monitor. It had much better overdrive and less ghosting.
