I'm in the market for a new computer and am looking for gpus. I've got a you budget of about 500 usd which one should I get? I've got a monitor that is 1080p 55hz and I will probably upgrade soon to 1440p or 4k 60+hz.

you should go for 1440p 144hz, so I'd reccomend either waiting for amd vega, or getting a evga 1070 ftw2

I'd get a 1080+ for 144hz 1440p personally.

OP's budget is $500

I also did say 1080+ which would include the 1080Ti.

With the prices for 1080's falling I would get one of those. You could even find a used one that is only a couple weeks old (people who didn't wait for 1080Ti and decided they wanted one after buying a 1080 and seeing 1080Ti's price) for about $400-450. I sold my GTX 1080 Gaming X for $400 for reference.

Optimally You should go GTX 1080 and 4k @ 60hz or 1440p @ 144hz.

Or

GTX 1070 and 1440p @ 60hz or 1080p @ 144hz

How would the 1070 do in a 1440p range?

More like 40 - 80 depending on the game. (source). I wouldn't pair it with a 100hz monitor. A 60hz monitor would make more sense. If you want, you can overclock it to ~74 depending on the monitor.
