Upgrade to 144Hz 1st or rtx 2070 ?

I can get a good deal on a zotac rtx 2070 amp extreme core + BF5, or get a Dell S2716DG for $172USD off, which is a lot, which is 1440p 144Hz w/ g-sync, but it's a TN panel, I surf/read and watch stuff a lot more than I game.

I can't afford the 2nd item until mid-Feb at best, probably mid-March, because neither would probably be on sale.
My current 27" Qnix 1440p IPS monitor has bad ghosting/blurring/tearing. If u look around fast in say Skyrim, or FC4, the FPS might say 60fps w/v-sync, but it looks like a mess

But I'm "only" on a r9 280x, but there's still lots of games I could play that it would get high fps, for 2-3 months
