So here's my "dilemma", I'm trying to decide on what monitor solution I should have and it's thrown me though a loop. In this loop I have done a whole gripload of research and I think I've come up with a solution, but I want to get some outside opinions on this.
Now It looks to me that I can either get the perfect monitor for gaming or the perfect monitor for video editing, but not the perfect monitor for both at the same time.
So what do I do?
Well obviously I need to run a dual monitor setup that will handle both separately as I'm the type of person that prefers to run separate desktops and I really don't intend on scaling images across both screens very often so the fact that I'm using 2 different screens doesn't really bother me.
SO here's what a week's worth of looking after page after page of specs, comparisons, reviews and ratings.
For my image and movie editing monitor:
NEC 2490WUXi-BKhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824002168
NEC 24WMCX-BKhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824002359
So the price of the imaging monitor makes me want to vomit, but editing images without moving my head around due to the color shifting has made me not even want to edit videos or pictures anymore. Really if there were an equivalent monitor out there I'd go for it, but it seems like NEC's only real competition is Eizo and Eizo monitors are even worse with the price gouging.
I'm 8 days away right now from pulling the trigger and just saying yes to everything I've picked out because I have waited for months to save up the money and I'm sick of trolling around researching and price shopping, I want to use computers for actual fun things or at least things I find fun.
If any of you know a decent 2 monitor solution that covers these fields I'd appreciate it. Paying 1500 for monitors alone is absurd to me but it seems like what I found is the most reasonable solution despite the despicable cost.
