Gaming Modem and Router Advice

Hey All!

I just scored my first apartment with my girlfriend and am super excited. I also just signed up for an internet plan. I was hoping you could help me with what would be a good modem and router to purchase. The apartment is relatively small (850 sq ft.). I use my computer for gaming and also have an x box one. I have heard that some modems are better than others for a variety of reasons.

Here is a list of the approved modems I can buy with my internet service : http://mydeviceinfo.xfinity.com/

Thank you!

State budget for router.
If asking about a gateway device (modem/router/switch combined), no comment.

my budget for the router is probably max 150 dollars. I, thinking the gateway device is a bad idea so would rather go with the dual setup. The modem i want separately.

The ASUS RT-AC68 series, RT-AC68U/RT-AC68R/RT-AC68W is a popular choice.
Another is the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk.
