Want to purchase my ROG router. Which one should I buy?

So I just upgraded my internet where I now receive 1000Mbps upload and 100Mbps upload on fibre optic broadband through Virgin Media (in the UK).

I want a gaming router that would make my experience of gaming better. 

I only game on console, PS5 and Xbox Series X if that matters. I do not game on PC.

Currently I have 3 Ubiquiti Access Points set up on each floor via ethernet cable. It used to be a mesh system but now it's basically 3 separate "routers" around the house and I can't get it back to a mesh system no matter what I try. 

My devices are the 2 consoles, a personal laptop, 2 phones for me and my partner, 2 laptops. Google doorbell, thermostat, smart speakers etc. Set top box which is normally for streaming Netflix and a bunch of other stuff that I'm forgetting about. Basically whenever I'm gaming there's a good chance that my partner is streaming a 4k movie on Prime or Netflix whilst also watching YouTube videos or Instagram stuff.

I want a router that can handle my speeds but that's best for giving me the lowest ping possible in gaming with no lag and no bufferbloat.

Also another question is: will any of these ASUS ROG routers help combine the ubiquiti access points and make them into a mesh WiFi system?

What router would be best for me to purchase? I don't really want to spend anything more than £300 however please mention any at any price so I can get a good idea of what I need and how much it will cost.

Thank you

It's not a "gaming" router and it's above your budget, but I really like the new RT-BE88U.

Amazon UK also has one Used - Like New GT-AX11000 right now for £262.23.

OP is based in the UK if I'm not mistaken.  ASUS UK has the GT-AX11000 promotional price £299.99 right now.  I don't know if it includes VAT:
