I either want 3 full HD screens or a 1440P screen. Both powered by 1-2 780Tis

Well my opinion is either go for 3 1080p screens or 1 4K screen. Both will cost about the same amount. So far I prefer a single 4K to my 3 monitors, but at the same time when my 3 work, megusta!

I'd vote single 1440p, ideally at 96hz+. From
What I hear, surround can occasionally be a headache anyway.

3 monitors costs around 600, cheapest 4K starts at 800. And I am not intetested in 4K at all. Thanks for the advice though.

If I do, should I get IPS or PLS?

They're practically the same, but the Qnix/Xstar PLS monitors are the only ones that reliably run past ~70hz.

I would go with a 1440p IPS (IMO). I run a single 1080p at 120hz and love the high refresh rate.

The highest refresh rate I can get from a 1440P monitor that is sold in The Netherlands is 120Hz, but it's a Republic Of Gamers, which means a premium price that I will not pay for a TN panel. The highest refresh rate for a IPS/PLS panel I can get in my country is 75Hz. Which start at €467,20 ($644.18) for a Iiyama XB2776QS-1 AH-IPS monitor.

The Qnix/XStar sellers ship from Korea anyway, can you buy from eBay in The Netherlands?

Otherwise, you'll be satisfied with that AH-IPS monitor. It's a bit newer than the PLS panels, and should have a slightly lower pixel response time (which means clearer motion at any refresh rate).

I read some more about the Korean monitors and it's a little too risky for me to get one. So it's down to these monitors:

Single 1440P:
AOC Professional Q2770PQU, 27", 2560x1440, PLS, Edge-lit, 5ms response time, 60Hz, VGA, Display Port, DVI-D, 2x HDMI, built in speakers and USB-hub.
$547.02
Iiyama XB2776QS-1, 27", 2560x1440, AH-IPS, Edge-lit, 5ms response time, 75Hz, VGA, Display Port, DVI-D, HDMI and built in speakers.
$643.94

And these for the triple monitor setups:
3x AOC i2769VM, 27", 1920x1080, AH-IPS, Edge-lit, 5ms response time, 75Hz, 2x HDMI, Display Port and VGA, built in speakers, really thin bezel and MHL.
3x $281,86 = $845.58
3x Asus MX279H, 27", 1920x1080, AH-IPS, Full LED, 5ms response time, 75Hz, VGA and 2x HDMI, built in speakers and really thin bezel.
3x $398.33 = $1194.99
3x LG IPS277L-BN, 27, 1920x1080, AH-IPS, Edge-lit, 5ms response time, 60Hz, VGA and 2x HDMI and a really thin bezel.
3x $317.84 = $953.52
3x Philips 274E5QDAB, 1920x1080, AH-IPS, Edge-lit, 5ms response time, 75Hz, VGA, DVI-D and HDMI, built in speakers, really thin bezel and MHL.
3x $274.28 = $822.84

I am kinda leaning towards the AOC i2769VM triple setup

4K monitor, $700.
I am greatly considering this monitor.

Cheaper then any of the triple monitor options you currently have listed. Also then you dont have to deal with triple monitor problems (like I currently am).

Also OP, AOC is generally not great.

*EDIT*
You might not be able to get that in your country.
