What AMD card and Freesync Monitor to buy?

I am currently buying the parts one by one on my FIRST PC build (Hell yeah I'm excited!).

I listed the key specs for my build
CPU: 1600x
MoBo: B350F Strix (ATX)
RAM: 3200Mhz because ryzen
PSU: 750W (Cause of that damn vega)

And finally the star of the night, The GPU and The Monitor. I am currently debating with my self what card to buy since the monitor of my choice is the LG 29UM69 (I'm pretty sure its almost Identical with the 29UM68, please let me know if there is). This monitor is 29" 21:9 2560 x 1080 with 75Hz Freesync (W/ DP). Now I have 2 options, Should I get the 580 If ever the price comes down or the vega 56 which is kind of overkill for the 29" 75hz (I do plan to make this build somehow future proof and set everything to ULTRA. lol) and because of vega 56 i've got another problem in my mind. Should I stay with my current planned monitor or switch to the 34" 144hz displays which are a little bit over half the price of the 29"? Of course with the budget in mind the lower the cost the better, after all im still a student and I'm saving money for almost 2 yrs now just for this moment so I've got to make this build right (if possible, perfect for my tastes). I certainly cannot go over 1440p ultrawide due to the fact that it COSTS ALOT MORE and TAXES A LOT MORE ON THE GPU. I am currently waiting for card to be available in my country and for its price to be stable since it's new and everyone is buying the f*ck out of it and the aftermarket cards for better cooling.

Your suggestions and opinions are all accepted. If you want to correct me if something's wrong within this topic please do so. Thank you.

    Yeah, the price of 580 in my country is stepping the 1070 price territory. I guess i'll just use fast sync for the Nvidia card.

    Based on my convertion from my currency to USD, my budget is around 1300+ up to 1400+ for the rig. The price of 580 here is around 340 to 400 and the 1070 is 480+ to 500+. Do you think the price point of this two cards are so close that i should just go for the 1070? but if I did my freesync monitor will be wasted lol and i can't afford to buy Gsync monitor :(
    What do you think?
