No Idea What I am Doing

I have never bought a monitor before, never even looked into one. I am not sure if this is crazy, but I am looking for a monitor, under $100 USD, that I can edit video on. Color science is the most important for me, delay, Hz, and other specs, well, I am not sure what they are. If someone could give me a summary of what the specs mean and a monitor recommendation, that would be appreciated.

Lots of information on Monitor specification.

As for recommendations, it is slightly more then $100 but has excellent color accuracy when calibrated.

Below is a review, sorry the page is in German so you will more then likely have to translate it with google, and a link to the PDF with calibration made for best color reproduction.

Refresh Rate is how fast/often the image is refreshed

Response Time is how fast the screen response to your input

Panel Type is annoying to explain but for the best color ips panel. For the best response time tn panel(bad color). middle of the road is VA panel.

and that's the super basic.

Edit* since you want good color get a ips monitor what graphics card do you have because G-sync only works on Nvidia cards and some free sync don't work with Nvidia either

this is a good Freesync monitor but is $ 137 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Dnbkcf/lg-24mp59g-p-238-1920x1080-75hz-monitor-24mp59g-p

Edit2* Resolution is the number of pixels on the screen more is better.

have you looked at the rx 570? it's cheaper and faster. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1650-vs-AMD-RX-570/4039vs3924

It also consumes less energy though. Maybe he doesn't want high power bills......

yeah $10 dollars in 5 year is a ton of money.

Edit* i can't believe I wasted time look this up it cost around 7 dollar a year for the Rx 570 and 3.50 a year for the 1650 ( not counting the 1650s that use the pci-e cable).

So after 3 years you offset the higher cost of the 1650. That is if you get the cheapest of each rx 570 $119 and 1650 is $144.

Edit* Never mind Msrp for the rx570 is $130 and 1650 is $150 so that about the same thing

EDIT again* I can't believe I wasted 2 hours on this for no reason I and it's for nothing.
