Hi, looking to get my self one of these:

AOC G2460PF TN 24"
Acer 24-Inch 1080P Full HD LED Monitor (XB240H)
Philips 242G5DJEB 24-Inch LED G-Line Display

Which one would be better for gaming?

I have a MSI R9 380 4GB GPU would that affect the monitor I get?

The aoc has freesync which will work with your gpu for more consistent Frame rates. I'll issue is its a TN panel. What games do you play? Your GPU may limit you dependant on how demanding the games are, you may not notice the 144hz due to low framerates

I play games like GTA V, R6S, CS, NFS etc. This is what I've got currently on my build, it's pretty solid and dont think frame rates will be an issue. i5 6600k, z170 a pro mb, r9 380 4gb, and 16gb of ram. Would you still recommend the AOC?

i use a 390x on the Aoc monitor and its fantastic

Best monitor Ive had so far by some way.

Variable refresh rate doesn't affect framerates themselves, it makes the resultant display of them smoother.

Although it's more useful at normal framerates, it's not usually a priority for people looking to run at very high frame rates. Especially as it conflicts with black frame/backlight strobing technologies found in higher end monitors that enhance the effect of high refresh rates.

On the other hand your graphics card is too weak to get 120fps+ at 1920x1080 in some games so you probably will see benefits from it.

Correct me if I am wrong but I understand they do not affect each other hower I thought due to the refresh rate the benefits from high framerates diminishes

Would it be worth it or not then? I probably wouldn't play at 1920 on most games anyway.
