It's guys like you that add value to Dpreview. Many thanks for your informed reply.

I use Lightroom 4 and CS6 as my workflow.

My NEC monitor is the NEC PA 24w-bk-sv (spectraview software included).

Two reasons why I wanted to go this route are.....

1. Colour accuracy. I was not happy with the accuracy of my iMac. I want very close screen to print matches.

2. I want to be able to see a wider colour gamut on screen in softproof mode so as to more accurately emulate what my print will look like while I am still editing.

As I understand it (and I could be wrong) if I am using a monitor with sRGB only gamut and I print in aRGB or wider then even in softproof mode in CS6 the monitor cannot display correctly. Happy to be proven wrong on this. though.

So as I now understand it,

1. if I stick with the 650 ti, I will still achieve accurate monitor profiling as the NEC can still calibrate very accurately but ,

2. I will not be able to use the wider gamut of this monitor, thus I will not achieve what I need in #2 above???
