Monitor for Graphic Design

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 25.5" 1920x1200 ASUS TN Panel and I am looking to purchase a second monitor to serve as the main monitor for graphic design. I have a GTX 670, so I'm not worried about pushing the resolution at all. I'd prefer to spend under $400 on the monitor. The purpose of this monitor is for Photoshop, InDesign, etc. Looking for any suggestions that anyone has.

I am also looking for advice on a stand for the 2 monitors. I would like to purchase the monitor on eBay and the stand on Amazon.

Looking at the Crossover 27Q and the Crossover 30Q5 PRO. I was pretty set on a 27" until I realized that it was about $420 for the 27" and $550 for the 30" from AW. It seems like there aren't any reliable sellers selling the Koreans for under $375 now.

There's a local seller selling a Dell U2412M for $160, so I'm going to grab that instead. The price difference was just tremendous and that price for that monitor is very cheap. I currently have a 25.5" 1200P ASUS and I'm not sure if I should just keep that to use with my TV Tuner/Console/Secondary Work Display or sell it and get a different second monitor. I've heard the U2412 isn't good for some things due to the lack of a scaler, no HDMI, and speakers and it's pretty much a PC gaming + work monitor only. Any opinions from anyone on this? I am looking to pair the monitors with this: http://www.amazon.com/Mount-It-Articulating-Computer-Monitor-monitors/dp/B0052AWGLE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355896549&sr=8-2&keywords=dual+monitor+mount and I'm also trying to decide which Ikea desk too to complete the setup. I was thinking of maybe this desk: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40111124/. Just want to get some opinions on the different products I've listed and what I should look to get.
