I'm curious. Why do you want an Adobe RGB monitor ?

So that I could edit in wider gamut to print on a wide gamut printer.

There's nothing that stops you from editing in Adobe RGB, DonRGB, ProPhotoRGB or whatever on ANY monitor. Many of us successfully edited on our sRGB gamut PressViews, Barcos and Sony Artisans and output successfully on all sorts of devices. Never stopped anyone from getting great prints. In fact, when there were *surprises*, they were almost all welcome ones.

That being said, any $200 display you get will be crap for digital photography, and the aforementioned BenQ's are really the very bottom of the barrel of what's barely acceptable. I would re-calibrate (pun intended) your budget. It's only a couple of bills difference and you'll be so much happier in the long run.
