Suggestions for Freelance Graphic Design Monitor / Light Gaming

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys,


I'm looking around at the moment for a monitor upgrade. I'm a freelance graphic designer currently making-do on an old LG L226WTQ 22" monitor at 1650x1050 resolution; it's time I went for a new 24-27" monitor - I got this one around 2004/5 if not slightly before, but I have a few concerns.
