I've been doing it for hours now, and now I can't tell what looks good anymore. o_o

Anything more than a very quick, basic calibration is pointless unless you have one of those $200+ calibration tools.
What's a sig?

Just get the gamma correct, and set the color bias and whitepoint roundabout your eye's color adaptation in the room where your monitor is situated. It'll change as the day progresses, anyway.

Edit: getting perfect white is practically impossible, given how sensitive your eye can be to small biases. I use a slight warm bias. At night it's calibrated to appear white under a warm white halogen.

I only use my monitor for viewing purposes, so all I care about is that it's not too far away from the color my eye would adapt to anyway.

This is the gamma pattern I use, and there's an article on his site with more information.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs
