After checking your performance on Witcher 3 just to make sure. The answer is a categorical NO.
Unless you plan on playing at low.

M series are really weak cards and the 860M even more so, since it's not even a *70 or *80 and it's series 8.

What about a 27 inch 1080p monitor at 144hz refresh rate??

Depends what games you'll play. Witcher 3 ran at 20-30 fps with settings changed. Sadly your GPU is pretty weak.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpOIdu8KDOY this video shows some other benchmarks also, compared to the 970m counterpart laptop.

You probably won't get to use those 144 Hz, there is no reason to have 144Hz if you play at 60 fps.

Laptop has a mini displayport output which that would be used. A mini to normal displayport cable should work.

Cioby is right though 144fps is asking a lot, in either 1080p or 2k. Albeit if you can get close to 85fps or more would be worth it.

Well depends what you will play. And medium settings or Ultra (maximum).
Also if you checked my link, you'd see that even some older games barely do 30-60 fps on that laptop, 22 fps on Very High on Crysis 3.
So if you are willing to play medium settings on older games, or simple games like CS/Dota, sure it will run. Otherwise it will be a bit laggy since you won't even get 60 fps constant.

The increase from 1080p to 2560x1080 is less than 50% so if the game gets 60fps at 1080, you might get like 40 on the new monitor at the same settings, unless you drop some quality.

Personally I'd recommend you upgrade your PC or something, instead of getting better display. Unless you don't care that it looks ugly.

I don't have that kind of money to upgrade the PC that's why. I want to wait for like 2 years or something to upgrade my PC so I just want a monitor till that.

This is my honest opinion, you will get low frames, which might make you dislike the game or feel it's not "fluid" and "as fast" as before. But you will be able to run all the games you are already running at 1080p at more or less 70% of the frames you are getting now.

But yes, you can buy a widescreen and it will work.
