https://pcpartpicker.com/list/q9M6YT
Should i go for 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60hz?
I am looking for atleast 27 inch, thin/no bezel monitor. It will be for decent gaming, editing, movies and streaming. Budget would be $250-$300. And I am not worried about g-sync support.

Well an important thing to consider when buying a monitor is the needed refresh rate. If your games are getting 60 FPS there is not as much need for a 144hz monitor oppose to if your games are getting 144 FPS then a 144hz monitor makes sence. The higher the refresh rate of the monitor the more smooth the games will look. If your games get 144 FPS but you choose a 60hz monitor you might get frame tearing. Another thing to consider is the response time. If you get a monitor with 1ms response time you will have less input lag oppose to a monitor with 3ms response time. Also 1080p will be perfect with the 1660ti, 4K would be pushing your GPU. Let me know your thoughts.
 
your card can handle either. for competitive gaming always go more frames.

the 1ms gaming monitors are nearly all TN panels. TN looks much worse than ips. If you haven't seen one in person see if you can find someone you know who has one. you can get some buyers remorse on that if it's not what you wanted. TN also has the worst viewing angle if you plan on watching a movie from any other angle than normal desk use.

Full disclosure: I'm not convinced that extra-high refresh/frame rates are worthwhile.

That said, while it might cost a little extra, consider a 2560x1080 ultrawide monitor. The wider FOV from the 21:9 aspect ratio is definitely enjoyable. You might also be able to step down to a 5700 non-XT given that resolution. I used to be someone who said ultrawide was a gimmick. That was in the past. I have since become a "true believer" in 21:9.

I generally prefer large-ish monitors, and my son's 2560x1080 is a 34", which looks very nice.

This is my son's monitor, and it seems to be currently on sale for around $400 from several vendors. The curvature is very mild, and the image quality is great. It was also reviewed here, (ignore the price listed in the review, that was over 2 years ago) and they said despite the large size relative to the resolution, they were happy with the display.

And I realized I just preached AGAINST high refresh rates while recommending a FreeSync monitor that goes up to 144fps, but, if there were a cheaper version of the same thing that only went up to, say, 100 or 120 Hz, I'd recommend it.

It comes down to the games you play but the system will handle both monitor resolutions although you may need to tweak a couple of settings at 1440P to keep the FPS at 144. With either you'd want them to be Freesync and preferably VA or IPS as the colors are much better then TN.

If it were me I'd go 3440x1440P/100hz/VA, 21:9 (or larger) offer more immersive gaming experiences over 16:9 panels.

This MSI 21:9 is a good price.

Back to your original question, with that kind of budget I'd go 1440P/144hz/VA/Freesync & use Displayport.
