1080p g sync 144hz vs 1440p?

I know, this question has probably been asked so many times, but can you help a young monitor noob like me? So I want to get a beast PC, and a monitor that will harness the power, I'm going to get 2x gtx 780 in sli (obviously) and in Scan, there are 2 monitors I'm interested in.
1 is this which is a nice 144hz 1080p monitor with g sync installed.

2 is this There are many 1440p monitors available, I've heard that the Viewsonic is of high quality.

This rig will probably be mostly used for FPS, I'm not exactly crazy competitive, but I do like to win (like anyone), for games like Borderlands 1/2/3 (when 3 comes out), Battlefield 4, Crysis etc. I also like 3rd person games, like Dead Space, GTA. I do expect this PC to last me a long time, I'm going to invest a lot of money, also I do not use a lot of AA, like 2xAA at the most, since I don't really notice a difference in visuals that much, but I will use around 2x/4xaa but not 8xaa since that just eats FPS. I also hope to overclock the gtx 780, if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance guys and girls

g-sync seems to be worth it from what i've read. i think that 144hz is overkill, personally i just don't see the difference in anything above 60 fps and 60fps.

It'll be a personal choice, but G-sync would be my choice. I personally can't handle stutter or latency. It causes me nausea. It is also quite likely that later in the year there will be some 1440p G-sync monitors as well, so if waiting is a possibility, you may want to wait and see. I plan to wait and see, but I still plan to go 120hz or better when I get my G-sync monitor. I like both 3D Vision and high hz.

True, I am also waiting for Haswell-E, so at the same time, I could wait for G Sync 1440p.
Another thing I'm wondering, would there be a difference in scaling between the gtx 780s with the 1080p and 1440p monitor I mentioned?

Yes, the 780 SLI will get bottlenecked easier at 1080p, so scaling will be better at 1440p.

I think you want to do some research on the limitations of G-Sync. The first iteration, from what I read, will only support 1080p @ 144Hz when enabled. Additionally, it is questionable whether it will support SLI when enabled and since it only supports Display Port 1.2 multi-monitor is out of the question unless you have one card for each monitor (current graphics cards rarely have more than one DP and G-Sync doesn't allow DP daisy chaining).

Plus the first G-Sync monitors from Asus are lower quality.

If can wait a bit, I'd see how the tech matures. It looks promising and most reviews are promising but without a lot of exposure, it's hard to tell the true impact.

As I mentioned, the first monitor is the VG248QE. It is a 144hz 3D Vision 2 capable monitor. If you want that, then you can buy now, but they have already mentioned it will be on a wide range of monitors. That is why you might wait to purchase one if 144hz 3d Vision 2, 24" monitor is not what you wanted.

I'll be waiting for a 27" version, and possibly one with the 3D Vision emitter built in. If you want 1440p, you can wait for those too. Just because the prototype was the VG248QE, does not mean it stops there. There is nothing to say it has to be 144hz either. That is just what the first monitor is. They said they'll be working to get them into 4k monitors, 1440p monitors and 1080p monitors.

If Gsync is a feature you want, there is no reason not to wait a bit, if you don't need a monitor now.

I can wait, I'll see if the technology matures, and see if it is appropriate for me, you've helped a lot guys

Asus announced a 27" 1440P 120hz+ G-Sync Monitor. The PG278Q.
