The Nec is a Pro monitor and the Dell consumer class.

The PRO line from NEC(P/PA) , Eizo(CG/SX) and QUATO have a programmable hardware internal LUT(14 to 16 bit) and it is much better than using the graphics card LUT(8-bit).
The Dell U2410, U2711 and U3011 they got a NON programmable hardware internal LUT(12-bit)
at least it is better than nothing, but the calibration curves still in the graphics card 8-bit LUT.

LUT= LOOK-UP TABLES

Do you mean all graphics cards are only 8-bit? Or, some are capable of 10-bit (Quadro/FireGL)?
