Will a single 980 ti be able to handle this monitor?

So I'm going to upgrade my Asus PB278 monitor on the 1st of the month. Looking at 3 different monitors. The main one is this... http://www.microcenter.com/product/...K_UltraHD_IPS_Gaming_Monitor_w-_NVIDIA_G-Sync
Do you think I'll be able to run the latest games at 60fps or more on this monitor with a single 980 ti?
If not, the other 2 monitors I'm looking at are.. http://www.microcenter.com/product/458071/PG279Q_ROG_SWIFT_27_WQHD_IPS_G-SYNC_Gaming_Monitor
and http://www.microcenter.com/product/437547/ROG_Swift_PG278Q_27_WQHD_G-Sync_LED_Monitor
Most likely will get the IPS monitor if it's in stock due to better colors and viewing angles.
What are you guys' opinions?
A single 980ti isn't able to maintain a solid 60fps at 4K. If I had to choose one of the 3 I'd consider the ROG Swift with the IPS display that runs at 1440p if you will stick with a single 980ti.
Single 980ti for 2k to get about 80fps in witcher 3, most settings maxed except for NVIDIA hair but I'm capping my fps at 60 to match my monitor refresh rate.
I believe Asus has had some QC issues with their panels. At least the TN ones of the previous generation
It's getting better but there are still constant issues with those new IPS panels from both Asus and Acer...

In any case though, you're not going to get 144hz from a game like Witcher 3 (high/ultra specs) with a single 980ti so this is why I opted out to buy what I did.

G-Sync would have been nice....oh well.

Good luck with whatever you get.
