Any advice on this? Anyway to increase the speed/power without changing the price too much, and can someone try and lower the price about $200-$300 with smallest loss of power possible? Thank you in advance!

You may want to consider a different monitor, since 14ms response time is not good for gaming. Unfortunately if you want a 2560x1080 monitor that means spending over $100 more for 5ms response time. It looks like you're stuck with considering a single 1080p 120 or 144Hz monitor or spending the extra for the faster response time on a wide monitor.
