Time to replace my old trusty Catleap, I'm looking for a monitor with the following requirements:

- 27"
- freesync
- 144hz

With these requirements I'm left with the following (and their problems in parenthesis)

Asus MG279Q 2560 x 1440 27" (limited to 90hz on freesync)
Acer XF270HU 2560 x 1440 27" (overdrive broken... can't use freesync and overdrive at the same time)

Is there a monitor with the above specs without these problems? I've looked, and doesn't look like that there are any... I'm hoping I'm wrong.
