MSI Optix MAG241C Freesync, gsync compatible?

I just bought MSI Optix MAG241C 24" Freesync to pair up with my MSI Ventus RTX 2060, MSI said that it's GSYNC compatible but I am experiencing some flickers while gaming

Asus MG248QR or MSI OPTIX MAG241C?

They are both at the same price (0) but the Asus comes with COD Black ops 4, and the MSI has a VA panel. The Asus is also from 2016 and the MSI is from early 2018.

I play all kind of games, competitive and adventure, but I play mostly rainbow six siege but when I play other games I also care about the color so the VA might look better. And I have a curve TV which look amazing so curve monitor is not a problem for me, also the MSI is frameless. But the reason of why I'm undecided is because of the free game that I get with the Asus
