Question Should I buy the monitor with or without HBR3?

I plan to upgrade from a 1080p monitor to a 1440p monitor. I have decided on the Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q. It is sold "with HBR3" and "without HBR3." I am not entirely sure what that means. I think it means "with DisplayPort 1.3 cable" or "with DisplayPort 1.2 cable," respectively. The price difference is $105 on NewEgg. Do I need the HBR3 to get 165 Hz? I plan on using this monitor for gaming as well as word processing and web browsing. My GPU is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. I know that the monitor is officially only a Freesync monitor, but reviews say it also works with Gsync.
