This is a recent build I put together (had awesome help from you guys)

What's a good monitor for this build?

The only game I currently play is Diablo 3 and don't want to see screen tearing.

I also edit my photos on Photoshop and Lightroom. So accurate color reproduction would be nice to have.

Is 27" too big if I'm sitting pretty close (~18") to the monitor?

I currently have a BenQ FP241W.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm looking for a monitor that will also be easy on the eyes.

Here's a great inexpensive 27" 1080p monitor:
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VN279Q-27-Inch-Screen-Monito...

It has a $30 rebate, and just so you know, my first one was DOA. Not a problem, though, Amazon has a great return policy.

If you are sitting quite close to the screen, it's a little big, but if you can just back up a little, it's perfectly fine.

Thanks for the heads up on the deal.

Would an IPS be a better option for me?

Also, for gaming and photo editing 27" is usually preferred over 24" (or bigger is better)?

Have a look at some of Dells IPS monitors, the screen looks like a glass window and the colors on it are great. Dell also have their own display manager which I find easy to use for eg. If I'm playing in daytime I'd want some power coming from the monitor, unlike playing in the night where I'd want it a bit cool and giving a soft sensation to my eyes. On top of the dell display manager the monitor looks great and is practically borderless.

Would a Dell IPS be a good solution for eye strain?

Does anyone know which monitors are known to help with eye strain?
