So yeah I have narrowed it down and this is what I would like in a monitor:
Size: Between 23" (1920x1080) and 24" something (1920x1200).
Response time: 8ms (maximum) or lower
Viewing Angle option: IPS
Color Gamut Range: 96% (minimum) AdobeRGB coverage or more.
The one who fits my bill the most is the DreamColor, no matter how much I look when I compile my specifications in the searches I always stumble back upon this one... I can buy it, but the price tag is a little bit too much (it's like the price for 4 mid-range monitors).
Oh and I guess in light of everything (the information provided on this thread) I don't really need 10-bit.
The DreamColor requires DisplayPort for optimal use and you would just be wasting your money. You are window shopping with specs that make no god damned sense for your use. Just get a good mid-range LED. That's all you need.
Okay, so I have done more research, so tell me what you think of these two:
NEC EA231WMI-BK (H-IPS, true 8-bit, 16:9, 1920x1080, CCFL)
