I just gotta Gigabyte 970, and the thing rocks! (except for Star Citizen right now.) But like FBmantis said, they are getting pretty hard to find.

The resolution of the monitor is the primary concern when trying to match it to a video card rather than the physical size. Regardless the suggestion given to you is on target if you are looking to spend that amount of money.
The 280X would be my first choice in that list, followed by the 280. I've already discounted nVidia when it comes to price-to-performance for their current cards. (Have not read anything on the 970 yet, but I'm sure AMD has something better in the works as they usually do.)

I can get a GTX 970 for $350 and it appears to be a significant step up from the R9 $280X for $100 more. From what I've read the price/performance ratio is quite good. G-sync is probably a non-issue for now since the monitors are at a significant premium, so how well will a 280X do with 2560 x 1440?
I stumbled across this site (nowinstock.net) where you can be notified when an item is in stock. I've already received notifications at all hours when the GTX 970 has come into stock at Amazon and Newegg. Pretty helpful when you're after a hard to find item.
