It all hinges on the titles and settings you can reach.I agree. If you can pull 120-144hz steady, adaptive sync isn't as big a deal. 100hz and below it's huge in my opinion. For some reason tearing just drives my brain nuts, even more so now that I'm used to gsync.
For esports and simpler titles at lower settings, especially at 1080p, sustaining 120 or 144hz is fairly doable if paired with a great CPU.
AAA titles though? Even a 2080ti suffers significant drops at 3440x1440 Ultra, and that's where Gysnc is way way way better. I've used both, and will never go back to a non VRR display. I don't play CS, competitive overwatch, or COD MP though. I dropped a 144hz 16:9 display to go 100hz 35" Gsync and couldn't be happier. Tried 4k 60 and even locked, it was simply awful to play comparatively, like running in muddy sand vs a nice track.
