What GPU should if I'm only planning on playing these games?

Get a 1080 , 1080ti or atleast 1070 for a good gaming experience

Ehhh, I would scratch a 1070 out of the picture. 1440 at over 100 fps is pretty difficult even with older games on the highest settings. I would just strictly stick with either the 1080 ti, rtx, 2070, or the rtx 2080. I feel like there should be a little wiggle room for higher fps with a better card.

I am going to be using a 1440p 144Hz monitor and I want to fully (or at least well over a hundred fps) on maxed settings (not counting hair works and motion blur) for the foreseeable future when it comes to gaming.

At the moment these are probably the most demanding games I would play (at 1440p):
The Witcher 3

Heavily Modded Skyrim

Tomb Raider

GTA V

 

Right now I want to use an RTX 2080 for my build, I'm unsure if an RTX 2070 would do the job just fine or would be lacking with what I want, at the same time if a 2070 would be enough for now, I'm concerned about it being good enough for the future. (I don't plan on upgrading the GPU for I'd say around 5 years.)

 

TL:DR I want to play on 1440p on a high refresh rate monitor and I need help in picking the proper GPU that would be viable for the foreseeable future.
Edit: Including the specs for convenience.

CPU: i7 8700k with a NH-D15 cooler

RAM: GSkill Trident Z 16GB 3200mhz
Motherboard: Aorus Z390 Pro

Storage: 2TB Seagate Barracuda and a 256 Samsung NVME SSD
PSU: Corsair CS650M 650W 80+ Gold

Hello, first of all, what is the config of your PC?

Whats your CPU, motherboard, RAM, storage and more importantly your PSU?

"Once there was an explosion, a bang that gave birth to time and space. Once there was an explosion, a bang that set a planet spinning in that space. Once there was an explosion, a bang that gave rise to life as we know it... And then came the next explosion. An explosion that will be our last"

A 1080 Ti or 2080 is the minimum you'll need for that. I'd be interested to see how heavily modded skyrim performs. As for longevity, that is where the GPU will be tested. Depending on the games you play (by the looks of it, the more popular AAA titles), it might last you a while, it might not. Hard to say since games that are coming out in 5 years aren't out yet.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I've already edited my post to include the config.

not going to lie but a GTX 1080 would benefit being a more powerful card than the 2070 and is only $750 AU dollars while a 2070 is about the same price but the cheapest RTX 2080 I found was $1022 AU dollars

1080 Ti are pretty much out of stock everywhere I look, so I'd probably go with the 2080 you suggested. I get that the RGB variants from the Strix and Aorus brands add to the price of the card, but what should is buying an OC version of the card better? (You could just OC it yourself after all). In that case from which manufacturer would you suggest buying from since their prices fluctuate.

I didn't say anything about buying a 1080 Ti new. That is a pretty terrible idea to be honest. As for the cooler, it's more a matter of how quiet you want your computer to be. Asus Strix and EVGA coolers tend to be the best, with the rest of the beefy open air coolers usually following closely behind.

Try getting a 1080 ti if you can find any.
