Which 144hz monitor should I get?

I am currently trying decide which monitor to buy, I have 3 certain ones in mind but can't set my finger on just one to get.

ASUS ROG Strix 27” Curved 1080p 144Hz

ASUS ROG Swift PG278QR 27” 2560x1440 165Hz G-SYNC 

Acer Predator XB271HU 27" 2560x1440 144hz G-SYNC

 

I am running a GTX 1060 6gb and i7 7700k if that helps.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

I personally don't think you need a 1440p with G-Sync if you're running a 1060. I'd only get that if you're upgrading your GPU later to a 1080 or higher. 

1080, 1080ti, 2070, 2080, 2080ti. 

 

The 1080 would be the best for you right now.

I was probably going to run 1080p in games and have the 1440p for my graphic design type of works, would you still recommend going with the 1080p monitor?

Depends how much you're okay with 1080p, it's not bad... but 'graphic design' if serious sounds like something you could use 2560x1440p.

 

You can go with it and play on 1080p, it'll just look really meh because native is always the best.

Would it be a bad idea to go with one 1080p monitor and one of the 1440p ones?

Do you work professionally with it or it's just leisure? the 1080p is probably cheaper and will do the gaming job perfectly with you 1060 while it can still do work... but if you're serious about needing more professional gear for work and what not the 1440p is justifiable.

It is more of a leisure right now as I am only 16, but having the future proofing would be nice.

honestly I'd pick none of these monitors, 1920x1080p is a 24inch screen size and I'm sure there are plenty of 144hz ones that are cheaper and would do the job.
