Video Card: MSI RX 5700 Mech

I'm looking for a new monitor that will run at 2560 x 1440 at 100+ Hz. I want a TN panel for the refresh rate as I'll mostly be playing fps games. The size I'm looking for is from 23-27 inches. I also want Freesync to take advantage of the AMD hardware. My budget is $300 tops without including taxes.

I've looked at these two Dell monitors, Dell S2417DG 23.8 and Dell S2719DGF 27.0". Are they any good for gaming? Anyone using them and can recommend them?

I'm also looking for looking for any recommendations that fit my requirements.

Thanks for help.
The S2417DG has G-Sync which you would need an NVIDIA card to take advantage of.
I really like the Dell S2719DGF for you. It has FreeSync which will pair nicely with your RX 5700. Ratings online look to be good for it as well.
