I am using CS5 Premiere/Photoshop/After Effects for Hobby Purposes on a new build that consists of the following:

Win7
AMD Quadcore 955
4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
GT240 Graphics Card
Samsung F3 1TB HDD

Adobe System Requirements states:
1280x900 display (1280x1024 recommended)

I wanted advice as to weather this is a good monitor for my system (I do not need the built in speakers that come with this monitor):

Any recommendations are sincerely appreciated as I am unsure as to which monitor to get.

Is color accuracy important you?

No. - Sure. It's decent enough and the average person will be fine with it.

Yes - No do not buy because it uses a TN panel which are known for not being able to produce accurate enough colors for professional use.

You need to look beyond a monitor that uses TN panel. Basically this means you need to increase your budget.

The Dell U2311H is an inexpensive monitor which uses an e-IPS panel which may fit your needs. Here's a review:

=============================================

IPS panels are pretty good for color accuracy and depending on how much you wanna spend, they can really cost you an arm and a leg.
