Since it is a 4K monitor, you would prefer it to use it at the low refresh rate. But there is not much to worry about that since the high screen resolution makes up for it.
However, some of the graphics cards may find it difficult with coming up with the G-Sync, since we found some kind of stutter while running the game at 35 fps and keeping G-Sync off. However, on turning on the G-Sync, the stutters went away. If you still doubt about them, you can turn on the V-Sync and set down detail a bit low, everything turns flawless. You will have to pay around $713 for the monitor but if you want a decent gaming monitor with good performance, this is one gaming monitor you should check for sure.
