I am on the market for a new monitor and idk if i should get a 1440p 144hz or a 1080p 240hz. I mostly play overwatch and rainbow six siege and my videocard is a 5700xt

I'd say go 1440p144. The higher resolution makes it feel a lot better, and the lower refresh rate is not very noticeable unless you've been on 240hz for a while already. You can also get better color quality panels (IPS, VA) at 144hz than at 240hz, which is only TN.

So this is where im at. I got $300. I can either buy a TN alienware 240hz 1080p refurbished or a 144hz 1440p asus used but in pristine condition. Also a TN panel.
 
Personally see a lot of variables here.
If this panel is going to be over 32", go for the higher resolution. If you are sitting really close to it, get the higher resolution.
If under that size and you are sitting a couple of feet away I would likely consider sticking to 1080. 240hz is a lot, but....

Could try test your frame rate using fps counter in Adrenaline or AB. See what you get in 1080p. Then test VSR at 1440p, select new resolution ingame but don't run any antialiasing.

Think it's possible to mimic 1440p performance in 1080p with only aa but not sure which antialiasing type to use or how strong.

VSR alone should be pretty close to native 1440p in terms of performance wouldn't it?
