There is a slew of cheap LG paneled 22-23" IPS monitors available now for under $250 USD. I'd stay clear of the LED backlit models in this range.

I hadn't seen any of these until just now. Now I see, for instance,

LG IPS226V-PN $180 = http://www.newegg.com/​Product/Produc...82E16​824005230 (external link)


At $180 shipped, it's substantially less expensive then the Dell 2311.

It's LED backlit though. Not good for photo editing?

My understanding(which I will freely admit is limited) is that there is nothing wrong with LED backlit panels per se. In fact, many of the highest end monitors are LED backlit.

However, the LED backlighting technology deployed in many of todays low end panels provides a narrow range of color and thus should be avoided for photo editing purposes.

I would be real shocked if you couldn't get away with a GT 440. Those don't require an extra 6/8-pin power cable, all the power comes from the PCI-e slot, and it shouldn't draw much more, if any, than your GT 220. If you upgrade, try and get the GDDR5 version, not one of the DDR3 cards. The latter is available with more memory but the memory bandwidth is about half.

Jason, thanks for the insight. I have decided to go with the monitor first and them look at upgrading the graphics card - I will definitely keep the GT 440 in mind and the GDDR5 version. Will check out the specs for comparison.

Regards,

WesternGuy

Just got my HP ZR24W IPS monitor yesterday, and very happy so far. I haven't been able to calibrate it yet, but out of the box it seems pretty spot on. I'll know more for sure later.

I really wanted a 16:10 aspect ratio, and that was my main reason for spending a little more on a 24" as opposed to a 22 or 23". The extra screen real estate is very noticeable and I'm glad I sprung a little extra for it

How many high end Eizos are LED?

The HP ZR24w sometimes goes on sale for a good price. The Dell U2311 is not that much more than the 2209wa.

I got one of each of these. After a couple of years, they are both still looking good.

No monitor is any good for serious photo editing if it is not calibrated...and stays calibrated. So for any monitor, get a Syper or ColorMunki....and recalibrate at least once a month. It will only take a few minutes.

The NEC 2490WUXi2 is about the cheapest pro monitor out there now.

To update my own comment ... the NEC P242W is looking to be the 2490's replacement. sRGB only, LED backlight for a 29 watt power draw, display port etc., and slightly faster response times.
