  1. Budget? I dont think g sync is worth the premium they charge for it but it is a nice feature to have.

  3. I would try to go 1440p with your build. Well with no budget I guess we will start here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116827

    One of the cheaper high refresh rate 1440 ips monitors. You can find cheaper 1440p high refresh rate monitors just many wont have gsync or ips panels.

    Here are some G-Sync Monitors in Australian prices:

    Only one under $600, 1080p 144 Hz ($545) > https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/R998TW/aoc-monitor-g2460pg
    Slightly better, 1080p 180 Hz ($649) > https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/pHGj4D/asus-rog-swift-pg248q-240-180hz-monitor-rog-swift-pg248q
    If you are happy to flex budget, 1440p 165 Hz ($749) > https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/7HFXsY/acer-predator-xb241yu-238-2560x1440-165hz-monitor-xb241yu-bmiprz

    All are conincidentally $100 apart but obviously you get something out of it. Your GTX 1070 would be a great pairing with any of them if you want to go G-Sync but 1440p 165 Hz will be a stretch for the 1070 in most games at higher settings, still a higher resolution at least. Hope this helps :)
