which would be a better go in my case??

I can't determine this for you since it comes down to personal preference or willingness to accept each panel types flaws, such as TN panels dull and vertically uneven colors and very restrictive viewing angles versus the curved VA panels slightly less sharp text and VA panel gamma shift and center crush.  If reading text is not a priority then the VA panel would easily be the better choice, assuming you're fine with VA panel gamma shift and center crush.  Also, buying a monitor isn't a big deal if you have access to retailers with hassle free exchange and return policies.

Perhaps you should forget about 144hz and get a 75hz 1080p or 1440p AHVA/IPS/PLS panel instead since they're more suitable for you uses, especially since almost all of the TN panels made in the past few years are awful for watching content due to the banding in dark scenes. 

1080p 75hz: The Dell SE2717H and Philips 276E9 (Europe only; it's my top 1080p choice).  Some of the 1080p & 1440p 75hz panels only support up to 73-74hz and must also be manually overclocked when connected to Nvidia graphics cards.

The Asus VZ27AQ, Dell S2719DM, iiyama XUB2792QSU-B1 and Samsung S27H850QFU are the best of the non-wide gamut 2560x1440 IPS/PLS 60-75hz monitors for casual (non 144hz+) gaming and preset color accuracy wise they support 73-74* (overclocked with Nvidia gpu) to 75hz (native with AMD cards) and AMD Free-Sync.  The Dell lacks a height adjustable stand and is not VESA compliant, and the Samsung uses a PLS panel and LED PWM Dimming or Flicker when the brightness is set below 31% or 31/100 in the menu.
