The short answer is yes it should work with your new Lynx rig and the NVidia RTX 2070 video card.    How well it will play and perform at 4K in current 4K games I’m not real sure...

Would have been preferable to go after an NVidia GSync approved monitor from the NVidia tested lists they recently updated, but some FreeSynch screens like the BenQ might also be GSync compatible.   Yours isn’t listed there as tested yet, but here is the link to the current updated NVidia tested monitor lists as of April 2019.

We don’t usually encourage people to plan on 4K gaming on that excellent midrange RTX 2070 video card, because while it will work...you would likely be at reduced game settings to get smooth frame rates in demanding 4K titles.    We would normally encourage 1080p and 2K / 1440 players to use the RTX 2070, and those wanting solid 4K or VR performance we would point towards the stronger RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti cards to play recent titles in 4K with high frame rates on high game settings.   Those 2080 cards have more processing power on board to handle the demanding 4K resolution better, and even they can struggle to handle it in some titles.    Hope that helps.

I wasn't thinking of playing at 4K settings this was just the only monitor I had right now, I bought it mainly for my consoles, so I had no other option but thank you for letting me know. If you don't mind I have one more question I'd like to ask. Until I get the proper monitor for my rig would it cause any harm to my PC or my monitor? Out of these 3 options provided by digital storm when I was purchasing the PC, which I did not purchase yet, Which one would you recommend or does it come down to personnel preference?

-MSI 24 inch MAG24C Curved Series (144Hz Refresh) (1ms Response)
(1920x1080)
-MSI 27 inch MAG27C Curved Series (144Hz Refresh) (1ms Response)
(1920x1080)
-MSI 31.5 inch MAG321CQR Curved Series (144Hz Refresh) (1ms
Response) (2560x1440)

Nope it would not cause damage...lol.

They are all TN tech panels, but at least the 31” is 2560 x 1440 resolution... but they are also not GSync panels.    I would instead find a better choice from the NVidia GSync list somewhere else...easier to find good prices on monitors on Newegg, amazon., Best Buy..etc.    
I have always preferred Dell Ultrasharp IPS monitors...a couple Dell Alienware are on that list, and Asus as well.. What size, display tech, and resolution you prefer is all personal preference and experience...

Hi

Any monitor will work and not harm the pc or monitor. The settings on games will have to be lowered to keep the games playable depending on the monitor's resolution and GPU powering them. TN panels are good but IPS are better for color rendition and viewing angles. I use Asus and Samsung. As HockeyBuck stated, you can review and purchase online from various sources with more selection (Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, etc.)
Good luck and enjoy.
