Default How bright is bright enough?

What does the brightness rating on a monitors specs mean? For example, 350 cd/m2. How does that compare to something that states for example, 250cd/m2? What is a the typical brightness setting? for games, and also for editing photos an a screen?

Anything from 200 to 350 is good. You don't really have to worry that much about how high that number is because 350 on full bright is way too bright.
