I am getting myself a little confused if i can do this and what i might need. I have a gtx580 and i use a tv for a monitor, the issue is the colour you see on the screen is not what prints and I can’t calibrate it.
I would love to get a nice 10bit screen the dell 27" looks great but expensive. Will my graphics card do 10 bit colour? If not will there really be any difference in what you see?

Generally, you calibrate the printer, not the monitor.

Yes, the contrast, brightness, and color temperature need to be optimized on the monitor, but the real issue is that inks do not reproduce colors the same way monitors do, so the printer needs to be calibrated to print out what you see on the monitor.
