    Question Wide or Standard Gamut Monitor?

    I work primarily with the intent of printing in CMYK or viewing on screen. I will and do occasionally output to a 6-ink printer.

    I am not a photographer, but a painter and illustrator, both digital and traditional. Digitally, I work primarily in Painter and Photoshop.

    Right now I am in a heavy debate with myself between going with a wide gamut display or a standard gamut display (AdobeRGB vs sRGB working spaces). These are the ones im looking at; I'm leaning towards the wide gamut NEC...

    27" Apple Thunderbolt (Standard)
    27" Dell U2713 HM (Standard)
    27" NEC PA271W (Wide Gamut)

    Any thoughts, given my intended workflow?

    Cheers,
    Jesse

    Another thing I thought I would mention... I have read in places that OS X (As of 10.8) does not yet support 10bit graphics output. Although I can not find a definitive answer.

    So I'm wondering if it would be silly to even consider the, much more expensive, NEC PA271W, given that it is a 10bit panel. I also don't know whether OS X's lack of 10bit output would even matter here, given the NEC's internal LUT. It's all a bit over my head from a technical standpoint.
