Here inlies the argument I'm having with myself:
In short, no, there will be absolutely no benefit of having Ultrasharps vs. any other monitor. These monitors are going to be used in an Automotive department's classroom and are paired with a terrible Athlon X2 64; no games to be played, no images to be rendered, no specific color correction needed. Probably primarily used for trainers/internet/flash games.
The other side of the argument is that I figure if I'm going to upgrade these monitors, I might as well get the best (somewhat) I can while I can seeing as I won't get this chance again.
So is it worth it to me to get the Ultrasharps? I think I've answered my own question. As wonderful as they may be, I think I will have to pass on them this time.
Thank you to all of you that helped and contributed, it is greatly appreciated. +rep to all and thanks again.
