The first thing you must remember is that the monitor is the thing you interact with more than anything else. You really, really shouldn't have a crap one. It makes a mockery of everything else in your rig if you're looking at your rig through a dirty window.

However, the thing that made me chuckle a bit about those monitors is that they're 144hz and you are rocking two very old GPUs.

So like you I would be very torn. However, the answer lies in what gets changed and updated more. Monitors are usually good for a few years where as GPUs these days are good for about a week before something else comes along.

So I would get the monitor first. However, what absolutely sucks about modern monitors is that you are then locked to one GPU manufacturer if you want the best bit, Gsync or Freesync. And that sucks. It sucks big, sweaty vinegary balls.

I went Gsync and then Nvidia pulled the 970 trick. I regret it.

However, I just gotta suck it up I suppose. I'm not giving any more money to Nvidia because I will not trust them again so now I am going to lose Gsync.
