I have QNIX QZ2710 as well. I use a program called Color sustainer to get the brightness and colours back to almost perfect using pre defined profiles that other people have made using calibration equipment. 

If I ever go 4K I will be buying a Korean monitor. You cannot beat the cost v quality. If they ever bring out a G synch version holy fuck I'd be on that like white on rice.

Yup, it's very easy to get them spot on with Color Sustainer and all the million profiles out there, and easy to swap and test them too.

Start with a new GPU. Save up for a 1070 and you'll be set for either 1440p@60Hz or 1080p@144Hz. Decide on which based on what games you play more. Do you play a lot of competitive stuff? Then get the higher refresh rate. Do you want eye candy instead? Grab a 1440p monitor.

A few questions:
1. What is your budget for the monitor?
2. Do you think you will add a second GTX 970 for SLI any time soon?

Most people buy a monitor and keep it for several years.  Do you think you would upgrade to a second GTX 970 or a faster graphics card in the next couple years? if you do a 1440p monitor might be a better choice.  Looking at benchmarks for other games, SLI GTX 970's can perform similar to a GTX 980 ti or a GTX 1070.

If you buy a 2560x1440 monitor and play a game that is a little too much for your GTX 970 at 2560x1440 resolution, you can turn down the details or turn down the resolution for the game.

I don't have any recent benchmarks for WoT with a GTX 970 or a GTX 970 in SLI.  In WoT 9.16, a GTX 1070 will average about 115 FPS with a minimum FPS of about 65-70 at 2560x1440 with the in game Maximum preset in WoT.  In WoT 9.16, a GTX 1070 will average about 100 FPS with a minimum FPS of about 55-60 at 3440x1440 with the in game Maximum preset in WoT.  A 2GB GTX 960 will average 60 FPS at 2560x1440 in WoT on the Maximum preset.  WoT should be playable on one GTX 970 at 2560x1440 and with two GTX 970's, you can turn on V-sync and never drop below 60 FPS.

After having a 1920x1200 monitor for several years and upgrading to a 3440x1440 monitor, I wouldn't go back to a 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 monitor any time soon.

"turn on V-sync" worst advice there ever :D
Just like SLI, just bad advice. Not worth it, ever. Unless you really like that 4K on few specific games that SLI actually works on properly.
