Now I run an IPS 1440p alongside one of my old 24" 1080p's and I have everything I need. Soon to upgrade the 1080p into another IPS 1440p when I have the money.

Here's how I see it. If your set up is strictly for productivity, IMO your set-up now is better. If you want better picture quality and better entertainment experience, go with your Asus 27".

I know you said that you can't keep all the monitors, but how about keeping one? A 27" PLS along side one of your existing 1080p's should be the best option. Best of both worlds?
Agreed, I went from a 3x 22 to a 27 and ended up having to add a 22 back into the mix, (portrait mode mind you, works pretty good alongside my U2711) once you go from a multi-monitor setup to a single it is hard to get used to, I hated having to minimize what I was working on or flipping through windows.
