optimal 240hz gsync settings?

yo,

recently got this monitor and i've been enjoying all the fancy tech for sure:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0845QFDVM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

i haven't messed with gsync until i got this monitor though, so i'm wondering what the optimal settings are in terms of pure input lag. is there even a noticeable difference between gsync + vsync/gsync/fixed refresh at that hertz level? i dont trust my own eyes at this point so i thought i'd get some outside opinions

i've been using this guide for most of my thoughts, but idk how focused they are on the competitive side of things vs just a smooth experience: https://blurbusters.com/gsync/gsync101-input-lag-tests-and-settings/3/

my understanding is that gsync blends frames 2 trick ur eyeballs. if u dont get fps below 100 gsync makes it easier on ur eyes, but it doesnt help outside of that.

also, honestly 1080p 27” has pretty bad pixel density. i have an acer predator xb2 and i while 240hz is definitely nice i would recommend higher refesh 1440p or a smaller 1080p

does pixel density matter? ive found that this actually looks alot better than my old monitor (144hz 24in vg248qe)

pixel density doesn't matter too much but you may want to move your monitor further back

no - pixel density doesnt matter but its definitely “blurrier” at shorter distance than something smaller or higher res

gsync is useless if your min fps is higher than your refresh rate so turn it off if that is the case. otherwise cap your fps at your refresh rate minus 3.

yeah my min fps doesn't hit 280 (shocker), though i can get over it most of the time. ive messed around with fps caps
