My main problem is with the overshoot ghosting, so I come to ask for recommendations for monitors that have this as little as possible.

All TN panels have worse image quality than the large amount of good <130-200 IPS, and only the Acer XB271HU (@ 60hz) and Innolux IPS (Acer VG270UP, Acer VG271UP & Gigabyte AORUS AD27QD) suffer from obvious overshoot, but the Innolux IPS only do when their highest overdrive setting is activated, which is not necessary.  The IPS are slightly slower (up to 3ms), but overshoot free when their preset overdrive setting is used:

OD Opt=best or most optimal overdrive settings for each monitor

The Gigabyte's overdrive is still fine for gaming (Rtings loved it while I base my analysis on multiple reviewers), and it has very consistently great preset color accuracy.

The G-Sync monitors have guaranteed functional variable overdrive with Nvidia cards, but it's possible to buy an Acer XF270HUA and an accurate colorimeter (X-rite colormunki or i1 display pro) for calibration for less than 650 .  The Viewsonic XG2703-GS is the best and most consistently accurate of the G-Sync panels, but obviously can't match the image quality of a calibrated monitor with the same type of panel.  The Acer XF270HUA and colorimeter are a better value than the Gigabyte and Viewsonic, plus the XF270HUA uses an AHVA panel with better overdrive than the Gigabyte.  The only reason to consider TN panels is when trying to pay as possible for a 144hz 1440p monitor, or if after 240hz for CS: GO.
