I was wondering if I would be able to use a resolution of 2560x1440 with an intel hd graphics 4000. Also, what monitor produces the best colors for graphic design and photoshop in general?

No that's not possible with intel HD graphics unless you are using display port, display port is the only kind of cable that can reach up to 2560x1440, sorry.

So as long as I use a display port cable, I can get 2560x1440 with intel HD graphics?

Well actually according to this webpage here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/2560x1440-or-2560x1600-via... It actually states that you can reach that resolution via HDMI cable although you have to manually set the resolution: You need to manually add a new resolution to the Intel driver (Display -> Custom Resolutions) to use a resolution of 2560x1440 via HDMI. The driver complains that the bandwidth via HDMI is too low for a resolution of 2560x1440 at 60 Hz. With the "GTF" timing setting, only a maximum of 30 Hz was possible in our test. However, if you select "CVT-RB" (Reduced Blank) as Timing Standard, 2560x1440 at 55 Hz (55 p) is possible. But, it did not appear in the Windows dialog until we rebooted the computer. If it is still not listed after the first reboot, repeat the procedure.

A displayport cable doesn't cost too much, so if you could please confirm that a display port cable would work it would be much easier to just go out and buy one.
