S-PVA or H-IPS with at least 10bit LUT would be optimal, but first of all stay away from TN.

I guess this is the only one I can afford right now, but no doubt it will be an upgrade to what I have tight now.

It is a Dell U2211. It has:

Panel Type, Surface: IPS (In-Plane Switching), anti glare with hard coat 3H. The only thing I am not sure of if it has 10 bit LUT.

It's nothing spectacular, but it's better than nothing. At least it has e-IPS and can be dimmed to a reasonable level.

Is dimming done during the calibration?

Dimming is done by CCFL backlight brightness calibration. The good news is that it can be dimmed to a very low luminance level.

If the description says: Panel Type LCD color active matrix TFT WXGA, is it TN Matrix panel?

All current matrix types are active matrix Thin Film Transistor ones.

If this is your budget range, your best bets from Dell are the 2209WA or the U2311h.  Both are excellent entry level monitors using an e-IPS display panel and selling for around $250 USD.

where would I find those specs?
A good clue is in the viewing angles : PVA or IPS get 178, TN get 170/160 (even if the actual measurement for a half-decent DeltaE should be in the 10-20 range ;D  ::) ).
An IPS is even better than PVA (shadows appear more stable) ; if it's one it's said in the first place.
