I've been searching for monitors for the past 2 or 3 months, although I was searching for 4K monitors, I can tell you that if you want to be doing photo editing you "might" have to put out some more money (depending on the screen size you're after) . If having accurate colours is more important to you for your editing than gaming is then you will need an IPS monitor with a wide colour gamut. Try the LG, Acer or Dell websites or try Pcpartpicker.com and use the filters to the left to narrow down your search. Then once you find one that fits your needs you can always go to youtube or even on here to check reviews on said monitor or ask for opinions about it on here. Good luck.

I am by no means an expert when it comes to this topic... I just gave my 2 cents on what little I have learned during my search. Like I said in my first post. If having accurate colours for your photo editing is more important to you than gaming then that's what you should focus on mainly. If you are able to find a monitor with good colour accuracy and the rest of the stuff you're looking for then go for that I say. Youtube reviews help alot. Atleast for me.

Update:

I found this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XV1519W/ref=twister_B089QKDSH8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

1080p
165hz
.5ms refresh rate
Gsync Compatible

Is this Good?
ASUS makes good monitors, for the most part, and this has the ideal specs for FPS / Racing gaming.

The only thing I would say is that it looks like a TN panel. You might want to read through IPS vs VA vs TN to understand the differences.

There is no right answer but depending on the types of games you play, you might prefer a different type of panel.
