For the odd game that my GPU isn't man enough to play at 1440p, I'm not too fussed with playing at a non-native res and getting some scaling artefacts. But it depends on your priorities.
A 270X (or 270 at 270X clockspeeds) should be able to play most mainstream games at 1440p with detail levels turned down to High, turning off AA, and/or disabling some special effects.
A decent monitor will last you through several GPU upgrades, so I'd rather get the 1440p monitor now than a 1080p one and regret it later when you upgrade to a more powerful GPU in the future.
