Need help calibrating my BenQ XL2420T

Hey guys :hello: 

I just purchased "the greatest gaming monitor ever" and yet as every person who buys one of these realizes BenQ sucks at calibrating their monitors

My question is does anybody know of a good tutorial for calibrating said monitor? I know most of the work is done on the graphics card level and I could also use some help figuring that out too I recently switched from 2 5850's to a gtx 670 so I'm still learning how to use the Nvidia control panel

I found this guide:

But its meant for amd cards of course :sarcastic: 

Basically the biggest problems for me on the Nvidia control panel are the following:



Dynamic Range

Dynamic contrast enhancement

Also do I need to bother with Desktop color settings as well?

Obviously I'm using this monitor to game, no photoshop or any of that, so I'm not SUPER worried about color accuracy I just want my games to look as good as possible :na: 

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated

Btw I hope I put this in the right forum

I was doing the same thing. I am going to assume that you don't keep a spectrophotometer handy at home, so IMHO the next best thing you could do is punch in the calibration settings from here:
Or her

I do realise that each panel is individual but seeing how far off the mark the default colors profile is I reckon any of these 2 configurations will take you closer to an accurate colors.

Hope this helps.

I did like the tftcentral review on the monitor, and maybe I'm stupid, but I didn't see any optimal setting list for it (which I would love).

edit: I'm dumb, nevermind =P
