Default Which of these 2 monitors would you choose, and why?

These monitors on sale at Costco. I have a GTX 1080, and currently have a 27" curved screen Samsung 1080p monitor. Things I'm curious about:

- I'm surprised the 4K monitor less expensive,
- why does the monitor with the lower refresh rate have a faster response time?
- both monitors support FreeSync - would it be worth switching to a AMD video card like the
RX 5700 XT to get FreeSync support? I've heard some nVidia cards support FreeSync.

I'm unsure about which is better - a cheaper, less capable AMD video card producing a lower but smoother frame rate with FreeSync, or a high refresh rate monitor coupled with a super-expensive video card to generate the highest frame rates possible?

Ryzen 7 2700, MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, 16GB G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3200, 970 EVO 1TB SSD, eVGA GTX 1080 8GB ACX
