You'd be better off buying a decent CRT monitor.

I’m a little confused by this part of the article “Unfortunately, getting a CRT monitor that works well with modern PC games is a lot harder than buying a 4K LCD monitor on Amazon. While CRT TVs and monitors are readily available on Craigslist or your local thrift store (sometimes even for free) only a handful of models support the widescreen aspect ratios that some modern games require. The most prized CRT monitor of them all, Sony’s GDM-FW900, recently sold for $999 on eBay, and buying a compatible graphics card or video adapter could raise the final cost even further.” Mainly in relation to your suggestion - I don’t know all that much about pc gaming, but the article says you need an older graphics card with analog output - won’t that limit the actual games that you can play? Or do you have some weird setup with a top end gpu and an old one?

Is there a good crt and gpu combo you can suggest that’s around this price? Apart from the difficulties listed in the article, it sounds like it’s quite an expensive option too.

adapters can cause latency, the only reason to buy a crt is for the faster response times so if you add an adapter that will cause latency then it sorta defeats the whole point

Yeah, but that Sony monitor costs more than double this one. I’d kill for one though - the digital foundary vids on it were great
I've got several CRTs, consumer and broadcast, largely from before 'retro' was cool and cost a bomb. I've also repaired a ton of CRTs and related electronics over the years. An adaptive sync monitor and a CRT are completely different beasts, neither is 'better' than the other and these kind of conversations are often reductive and misinformed.
