Hi what better for online gaming
XL2546 with DYAC
AW2518H with G-SYNC

G-SYNC better then DYAC ?
Can I put G-SYNC at 240hz or 200hz
Can I put ULMB at 240hz or 200hz

I will answer:
"Right Tool For Right Job"
No mode is perfect, there's no one jack-of-all-trades modes.

I know some who use GSYNC for PUBG, use VSYNC OFF for CS:GO, and a brighter ULMB for Rocket League or Apex

Some very rough, loose, general rules of thumb:
To get low-lag without tearing/stutters, or to fix erratic distracting stutters, use GSYNC/FreeSync
To get lowest-lag with framerates well above Hz, use VSYNC OFF
To get clearest picture with very panny/scrolly/turny crosshairsless games, use ULMB with framerate exactly matching refreshrate
To get a low-lag equivalent of VSYNC ON, use framerate-capped GSYNC/FreeSync (e.g. 60fps@240Hz emulator = uber low lag)

The good news is that the same monitor can let you do all of that in the same display. You may have to cherrypick your priorities (e.g. TN vs IPS, 1080p vs 1440p, sponsored/professional competitive gaming vs plain casual gaming, etc) then make sure the monitor you choose has flexibility for the rest of its features. Sometimes choosing an optimization limits your choices/flexibility.

The rule of thumb:
- Quality of GSYNC/FreeSync can vary
- Quality of 144Hz/240Hz can vary
- Quality of blur reduction can vary (sometimes it's BRIGHT on some premium brands, and super DIM on others)
- Bleeding edge technology sometimes has bugs which we have to deal with, but the benefits can still be worth it for others

In other words, the premium of 240Hz and VRR can be well worth the extra money, especially if you already have a powerful GPU such as RTX series or Radeon 7. Most of the eSports players are heading towards 240Hz. Blur Busters frequently extoll the benefits of 240Hz, and only now studies are finally showing up (like the one by NVIDIA) to back it up.
