I have been offered a 4K 28” monitor for £200 which is a good deal. Will this be good with ryzen 5 2600 and gtx 1070 or should I stick with 144hz 1080p. I like frames as much as I do reselotion but can’t have less that 60

You'd have to upgrade the GPU though, a 1070 won't be able to handle 4K well.

Honeslty, 1080p 144hz is better for games, specificly shooters imo. 4K is nicer for 30fps games and content creation. I have three 4K 27" monitors and gaming on them kinda sucks at times. Like I'm looking at getting the Acer XB272 that's a 27" 1080p 240hz display to replace my center 4K monitor with to game on. Then keeping my other two 4K monitors on the sides.

It depends, what's the Hz on the monitor he's offering. 

What type of games do you play? Do you play a lot of FPS games or timing based PvP games? If so, than the 144Hz 1080p would be better than let's say a 60Hz 4k monitor. 

If you're just playing more cinematic games such as Witcher3 or FFXV than go with the 4k monitor.

use the 4k for movies and photos and game on the high refresh rate. your going to be happy with the results I have a dual arm with a 27" curve and a 27" 4k and it works out well just turn off the one your not using because the windows desktop still counts as rendering on the GPU and drops your frame rate 4k gaming is still a few years off for most of us  who cant afford a 1080ti or higher for that smooth 60Hz+.
