What's the best monitor for xbox one and graphic/web design

My current notions:

Gaming:
I don't currently or plan to play games through steam so I believe the max FPS will be 60 so I don't need more than a 60Hz refresh rate, but I'm not positive. I play competitively so I'm a little

Creative Work:
I also do web design/graphic design/iOS development & design and I'm looking for a monitor that has a picture quality of Apple's thunderbolt so I believe that means I need an IPS panel.

Some sites claim you can have both, some claim you can't.
I currently have this monitor which I use for gaming: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=1404127422K

I'd prefer to have an all in one solution, but if it's easier to get two optimized for the activities I'm open to considering that as well.

Any monitor will do great. Just make sure to have an aspect ratio of 16:9. What resolution/size were you after?

Any monitor will not do great, as I have a monitor now and it is not what I want. 16:9 isn't a priority either because 16:10 works just as well.

The size I'm looking for is 24"-27" and resolution is up in the air due to an 27" IPS needing to be 2560x1440 to look as good as an Apple thunderbolt display, but not necessarily needing more than 24" 1080p for gaming.

I'm hoping someone who has familiarity with these two needs will have some insight to share.

2560x1440 isn't necessarily needed. A BenQ 24 onch 144hz won't be a bad investment. However, I reckon the original Apple cinema display is great for you if you have the money.

He already said that more than 60Hz wouldn't be needed but he wanted a higher resolution, so why would you recommend him a 144hz screen?
In my opinion, if budget was not the problem, you should get a 4K display, but you could also go with 1440p. I'm no expert in displays though, so check them out for yourself.

Sorry if I agitated you a bit. I was commenting based on the fact that he's not positive about playing steam games in the future so I just recommended the monitor that I would use based on the fact that it would do both jobs perfectly fine. Again, if you're willing to spend some money, I would buy the Apple Cinema Display, good for both things. The thing that doesn't set in well for me is the 16:10 aspect ratio. I currently use a monitor which is 16:10 and has a resolution of 1400x900. I love it when I'm doing web design, graphic design, etc, but when I game, the only problem I have is when I record the gameplay to show someone or post on YouTube, it makes it really stuffed up when I have to stretch it. Another thing is that I am unsure if XBox supports 16:10...
