The thing that jumps out to me isn't the resolution but rather 'color reproduction and refresh rate' in your statements. The Samsung U28D590D isn't going to be adequate on the color reproduction side as it is a TN panel. The refresh rate is capped at 60 hz max and that's only through DisplayPort 1.2 (HDMI 1.4 is limited to 30 hz).
Considering your use-case, I'd actually take a look at some 2560 x 1600 or 2560 x 1440 resolution monitors with an IPS screen. There are some cheap Korean one's that have decent color and then some like Dell's UltraSharp line which is really good and similar price range as the Samsung. The only downside to most 2560 x 1400 monitors is that they typically top out officially at a 60 hz refresh rate. Some can be made to run at 120 Hz with some custom profiling. There is also the added benefit being able to use your current video card if you go with 2560 x 1440 resolution.
EDIT: Herp, derp. Reading comprehension fail.
