I have bad luck with monitors, but I really can't afford a $2000 Eizo. On top of that, my GTX580s do not have DisplayPort, so I don't want to waste my money with the extra LUT when I can't take advantage of it.

The only monitors I have owned in the past few months have been wide gamut. To be completely honest, I don't even know what that means except for the fact that it can display more colors across the panel and more accurately represent what will be shown in print. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) I don't do ANY printwork whatsoever. I do love colors, though.

I am heavily into graphic design, web design, and programming (mostly programming HTML and whatnot). I don't do any printwork. What would be a suitable monitor for me over $500? I heard the new LP2475 does not have the U2410 issues, but I was also looking at the P241w for an extra $200 which is standard gamut.

Can anyone guide me through gamut differences and if I should actually get wide or standard? Which would be better for my needs?
