No problem, ASUS has a similar Pro Business series in the sub $200 range right now in newegg the PB238Q is on sale for $209.99 (assuming you'll buy it near this date ), the reason i think this is the monitor for you is because I believe this "Quick fit"-QUICKFIT VIRTUAL SCALE
The ASUS-exclusive QuickFit built in the monitor provides real-size document, photo, and grid mode on top of the operating windows on the screen. It can be activated via a hotkey on monitor and used as a guide to accurately view and edit photos.Video about Quick Fit
Just Skip to 1:04 (keep in mind this is the PA not the PB, but still very similar
It will be very useful for your Graphical needs, it also has an IPS panel(dont know what type) and it has the most generous amount of Connections on a monitor-
HDMI and Usb
And something good for your Gaming needs it doesnt have a 8m/s response time but a 6m/s response time
AND... best of all with a $20 mail in rebate it will be close to the U2312HM price just with out the shipping.
