Do you have anymore recommendations for this price target?

No.  Monitors not listed in my Best Reviewed Flicker Free buying guides are more likely to be untested rather than mediocre or awful.

I live in Portugal and the current asked price for the Acer Nitro VG270UP is 405.  I don't mind spending more money if I think that it is a better deal and that will last. The Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD is 608. Is the the 200 difference worth it?

No.  The Gigabyte is basically the same monitor with more accurate color presets.  The money saved can be put towards an accurate colorimeter (X-Rite colormunki or i1 display pro) for calibration which will provide much better image quality.

Make sure to read my articles or watch my videos about display brightness, display height and lighting:
