Well for photo editing, the VA panel on the BenQ GW2750HM may suffice, but it is known that IPS delivers the superior color accuracy. ASUS just brought a new line of IPS monitors that I would heavily recommend for your needs. You did not mention your budget, but this only costs a little more than the BenQ's that you listed for higher quality display and a reasonable 5ms response time to compliment your gaming needs.

If you have any other questions or need something more specific, just ask. Hope this helps. :)

well okay, well if you're not doing professional photo work, the VA panels will ve fine and the BenQ GW2750HM is a great choice. Don't go with that other one with the TN panel. TN is just horrible..
