I'd go with one of the 1440p or 1080p gsync high refresh rate low lag monitors and leave it at that. I'm not familiar with every monitor on the market, but ASUS's PG series seems to have a lot to recommend it, including aforementioned low input lag. Also, the PG279Q's price seems to be dipping a bit lately.
(I have a GTX 1070, went with a PG248Q. Really just wanted a monitor that my card would consider child's play, and that would display fighting games with minimal lag without screen tearing, and didn't want a 1080p signal to display awkwardly. If I had my decision again, one thing which might make me favour splashing out extra cash for the PG279Q might be IPS, since configuring colours on the TN panel was a bit unpleasant, but I got it into a good place.)
I wouldn't look at 4K monitors. I don't get the impression that the 1080Ti handles 4K comfortably at high framerates, standardization around 4K HDR adaptive-sync is a total mess that will hopefully change, and the monitors that do all that stuff at once are ridiculously expensive early adopter things that will likely be rendered obsolete if the market shifts to good standards.
I personally wouldn't want to be on the market for PC monitors right now. Nvidia basically owns the high-end GPU market, and they're using that control to proprietarize the next generation of video standards: adaptive sync, HDR, etc. Maybe with Intel supposedly entering the market by 2020, or if AMD's next generation of GPU tech surprises us and manages to compete with Nvidia at the top, we'll see GPU hardware commoditize and open standards like freesync/freesync 2 and HDMI 2.1 prevail. Until then, I think buying into 4K HDR is risky.
