I think I heard Shane mentioning that he has one, so, are they worth the price and what do you think about them over a regular monitor?
Alex may chime in here, too. I've been very pleased with mine. I don't deal with any graphic nonsense thanks to G-Sync. I run without VSync now on any game and variation in frame rate in demanding games no longer causes tearing or other such BS. It isn't something you see every time you play and say, "Jesus, thank GOD I have a Gsync monitor". It reveals itself when you're NOT using one - on a PC or console without it and you're like "Thank GOD MY PC has a Gsync monitor".

So here's my 2 cents worth...
2 years ago, I bought a Acer Predator 24" XB24IH. It's a 1080p 144hz (overclockable to 180hz) G-Sync monitor. At the time I had a GTX 970, upgraded my gpu to a 1070ti last year. The biggest difference, for me anyways is the higher refresh rate. I've played around with G sync, turning it on and off. For me it's not that big a deal. I'm not as sensitive to tearing though which may be why the Gsync thing didn't make as big an impact. The monitor is fantastic, don't get me wrong.. But I would have been better served buying a Gsync-less monitor and saved the money.
I was working with a strict budget at the time, and the debate was should I go with a bigger monitor, higher resolution for the same price? Or pay the Gsync tax and settle for the smaller panel and lower resolution... Personally, I feel I made the "wrong" choice. So the question is... do you normally turn "on" Vertical sync on your current monitor? If you do, you'd probably benefit from a Gsync monitor. If tearing isn't typically an issue for you, then I'd skip gsync.
