Best TN for Web/Graphic Design

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am a Web Design student and do freelance work, so I need a monitor with good color. The problem is, I also do a lot of gaming so I need a good response time (really prefer 2ms GTG). On top of that, I would like to have a triple display going on but I only have about $600-$700 to spend. These monitors are the ones I am looking at - reviewers claim they have "great" and "brilliant" color, and the specs are good for gaming. Not to mention that they seem very common:

How about 3X Dell U2211H's?

$230 each, so about $700 total.

IPS don't ghost anymore. They are just for gaming as TN's, but with much better color. Ghosting only really effects old IPS displays.

Response time is fairly meaningless as far as gaming is concerned. The Dell eIPS models like the above poster suggested are a much better choice. They're some of the most accurate sRGB monitors on the market (perfect for web design) and actually have lower input lag than some TN panels.

Designing on TN panels, in any professional capacity, is not a good idea.

You guys - that is great to know. I would LOVE an IPS but I didn't want the ghosting. I think I will get the 23" dell IPS and add others later when I have more cash. Thanks! My friend from art school claims that lower pixel density (dpi/ppi) is a little better for photoshop, anyone second that?

Preference really, I like a high DPI so that I don't see individual pixels, plus the 22" dell is almost $100 cheaper than the 23", even though they use the exact same display technology.
