Some examples that show why a wide gamut monitor matters:

EDIT: note that these are all posted in ProphotoRGB (a non color-managed browser may make them look faded out and odd which is not what I'm trying to get at, that is a totally different issue)

If you view some of these in regular gamut they will look HORRENDOUS! No detail, clipped, weird colors, awful. Viewed on a wide gamut monitor the colors tones are detailed, no clipping, so rich, different shades entirely in some cases, vastly different looking.

very hideous and radically clipped with extreme color shade alterations as well (it may be hard to believe, but these truly don't show clipping and actually look normal on a wide gamut display):

maybe not quite hideous in sRGB, but VERY lacking and a bit clipped:

somewhat lacking and clipped:

not hideous or apparently clipped and yet in reality quite lacking and a rather different and much less intense shade of red:
