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.

Now back to the op's question I would buy a good monitor now and then update the GPU later as either way you go it will be average until you have both but with the monitor there will be an improvement right away and then when you get the card you will be blown away with the difference

Haha, so OP is kinda like me then... not sure wether to get the 980Ti first or an ROG Swift. But after seeing this thread, I've kinda made up my mind, cheers guys!
