I'm thinking about getting a RTX 2070 however it doesn't support DVI and i believe my monitor is HDMI 1.4. Is there any good solution to get an RTX 2070 with my monitor and make my monitor run on 144hertz?

From our sticky:

High refresh rates are supported over HDMI on most modern displays. HDMI 2.0 support is not required for 1080p 144 Hz or below.

Some older 144 Hz displays are limited to 60 Hz at 1080p over HDMI (such as the Acer GN246HL, and BenQ XL2411, and ASUS VG248QE), but this is a limitation of those particular displays, not a limitation of the HDMI standard. Limitations of products have resulted in a lot of people saying things like "the HDMI 1.4 standard is limited to 60 Hz" or "limited to 120 Hz", "you need HDMI 2.0 for 144 Hz" etc, but these statements are incorrect. </blockquote>

Without DVI -- and it's not just DVI, it's dual-link DVI -- your options aren't good. You can't use a cheap DP to DVI adapter because those are single-link. A proper dual-link one will cost $100-$150. And that sum of money is better saved towards a more modern monitor.
