ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278QR OSD Calibration settings

Hi guys, anyone got calibration settings for a ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278QR for best colour representation? There seems to be alot of PG278Q OSD settings out there but very few specifically for the QR. I understand the panels are very similar however, there are more OSD settings avaliable on the QR and would like a definitive set for it.....


Also if there are any NVIDIA control panel settings i should be making, please include in response!

Here are the monitors I am looking for, ASUS VG278HV, ASUS PG278QR, Dell S2716DG. If you are making this decision, which would you choose?
