1440p 165hz vs 4k 60hz

Hey! I'm putting together a new rig and can't pick a monitor. Im gonna have a 8086k, 2080 OC, and 32gb of ram. 

Im not sure if i should go for a 1440p 165hz monitor or a 4k 60hz. currently looking at the ROG PG278QR for the 1440, and the PG27AQ for the 4k. 

im also looking at the ACER XB271HK for 4k

 

Im upgrading from a 1080p 90hz monitor and am concerned that loosing 30hz if i go 4k will be noticeable and disappointing. 

 

I read that the Acer 4K monitor can overclock to 75hz when using G-sync. Is that true? it seems some people say yes and some say no. 

Will I really notice going down in refresh rate if I'm using Gsync? 

I feel like it would be a waste to not go 4k, but don't want to be disappointed by a "choppy" display.

 

Any opinions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

g-sync you will not loose frames.

it seems you like to have more frames so the 1440p with 165hz would be my choice.

with the 2000 series it just reaches 4k60ish.

just a suggestion why not go for a 1080ti and save a little and maybe splash out more on the monitor say the 4k 144hz asus one if you can make the numbers work

4K if you're aren't needing the frames for esports. 4K will look amazing.

Ultimately it's up to personal preference, so what's better for me might not be better for you.

 

But definitely 165Hz (or 144Hz) instead of 60Hz is a bigger advantage for me than 4K instead of 1440p.
