Monitors for graphic design and gaming...

Looking for a monitor that I can use for graphic design, so high detail, accurate colors, and big size (1080p-1440p, 24-27in). I'd like it to be high in refresh rate too, but that isn't as big a concern (60hz+). Somewhere around $200-300 range would be good.

I'm using Dell U2412m monitors, and I love them! They have very rich colors because of the ISP display, and the resolution is 1980x1200 which is above the standard 1080 res. I use them for gaming, and I have not noticed any problems with them, such as ghosting or tearing, even though their response time is slower than a regular display. And the game just looks so beautiful.

That price range is pretty much par for the course in that size. Don't expect anything superb about it. If this was for professional use, I would recommend a 10-bit monitor for the exceptional color accuracy but it is WAY out of your price range. You won't get a 1440p monitor in that range either.

My recommenation would be the ASUS PA248Q http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008DWH00K. It has amazing color accuracy for the price range and also a great monitor performance-wise for gaming.

It leans more toward the picture quality but you don't need a high speed monitor for gaming. I actually prefer a better picture quality for gaming.

Thanks for the recommendation. I guess I skipped over this one when I was looking, it covers 100% of the spectrum and has an even better resolution of 1920x1200. Even better as it's in my budget. Thanks!

You should double check your needs before you just buy that. 1920x1200p at a 16:10 aspect ratio, meaning you will actually "see less" of a screen compared to a 1920x1080p 16:9 aspect ratio monitor. It isn't an issue for many but I don't know exactly what you would be using it for so, just a heads up.

My pleasure, it's actually one that I've got on my radar as a potential next purchase.
