Default Acer XB270HU vs Asus PG278Q

Okay everyone, I am really new to pc gaming. I like it A LOT more than consoles. But, I have been playing with a 60hz 4K tv. I cant tell you how many times I hear people tell me Im not getting everything out my graphics card for that. I have a 980 ti Geforce. I was thinking about getting the Asus PG278Q until i seen the Acer XB270HU. My question, is which one is the better one?

I have 3 Titan X and a 4k 60hz TV. IMO a 980ti isn't even enough to push 4k by itself.

yea i know its dang near impossible to get 4k. What I want is a 144hz monitor. I just want to know which one is the better one to get between the two.

The thing is, trying to get 144+ FPS @ 2560x1440 is as hard as pushing 4k at 60hz. You will need at least 2 cards to get your monies worth. That being said, as a previous Swift owner I'm not really a fan. I guess if you must go with one of these overpriced behemoths you might as well get the IPS version of the Swift.
