I am looking to buy an IPS monitor for sole purpose of photo and video editing, that works great with Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro and Lightroom. If its gaming monitor it's fine, if it's not that also fine.

These are the two monitors I came across with :

Acer EB321HQU 31.5-inch Full 2560 X 1440 IPS 60Hz, 5ms @ 293$

LG 29UM69G 29-inch Ultra Wide monitor 2560 X 1080 IPS 75Hz, 5ms @273$

Viewing distance is around 80 cm and the cost of both monitors only differ by 20$.

ah, ok.
well the first two options in this list are just slightly over budget but 1440p.
https://in.pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor/#r=256001440&P=2&sort=price

I would suggest the higher the resolution the better for photo editing for the sake of zooming and details.

But otherwise if going 1080p to stay under budget, then might as well go ultrawide for better video editing (cuz you can get a longer timeline on the screen due to it's extended width)

Here's a list of monitors for that
(The first two are the only one's within budget for you)

Otherwise, if you happen to be finding some alternative options that just don't seem to be popping up in the PCPP lists that would get you what you need within budget then by all means.

But if you can stretch the budget that tiny bit to get a 1440p monitor, that would be better for your photo editing.

If you can somehow stretch to get that third monitor in the list that is 32" then do it and never look back and enjoy it.

Otherwise, a 24" monitor isn't bad for 1440p, looks crisp as hell, and is fine if you're using the monitor like most people where it's only a couple feet away from you on a desk.

Otherwise, otherwise, lastly, you could go with a VA panel.

While not as amazing looking with vibrancy in colors like IPS, they get pretty close, and can also be very accurate with colors when calibrated but are usually really good out of the box.

here's a list of VA panels.

Just like with a couple of other monitors in the lists, it's slightly over budget, but if you can manage, you can get 4K at 31 inches.

Thanks a lot! I think I will go for FHD 24" IPS panel as it is under my budget.
