Sadly 3440x1440 isn't a 16:9 ratio which can be a deal breaker for some, especially if they watch allot of media.

This. You really really do.
It was only about 15~ years ago I was running with a 17" 1024x768 monitor.
Then I upgraded to a 19" 1366x768 monitor.
Then a 23.6" 1920x1080 monitor.
Then a 27" 1920x1080 monitor.
Then a 31.5" 2560x1440 monitor.

And I will probably go with a 40" 4k display one day.
Each and every time I got used to the bigger display size and loved it.

It wasn't long ago people were saying they wouldn't wish to go bigger than 24"... And I say to hell with that! I won't stop until it's the size of a billboard.
(Yes, this is in reference to monitors and monitors only.)

I would still aim for 1440p at higher refreash then 4k I think it's the sweet spot for another year or so.

4k looks glorious but being stuck at 60fps for the moment is a bit of a downer
I find 1440P to be the sweet spot in terms of price/performance.
Even mid-range GPU's like the Radeon RX 580/Geforce 1060 is capable of driving most games at that resolution.

Still. I intend to go 4k eventually, but only when mid-range hardware is capable of driving it and when 120hz+ panels are common. This is my last 60hz monitor.

I've been looking at a 27" fps monitor recently and i've found the following traits:

sub $600

$690 - $780

$900 - $1100

What i'm struggling with that's holding me back from making a decision is A) is there a noticeable difference between 1ms and 4/5ms and B) does a VA/IPS screen provide a much better picture?

1440 is great for both frame rate and clarity. I think the previous guy who listed the sizes and resolutions had it right.
If you run with 2 x 24 1080p inch monitors, its the same pixel density as 1 x 48" 4K, takes up the same horizontal space (probably less depending on bezel sizes) and as an added bonus u get twice the vertical real estate.
