Sorry , this is the first time I use a mailing list and I don't know if 
this is the right posting procedure.

I use XP 32 DispCalGUI +Argyll 1.1.1 +Spyder3 + Dell 2709W Wide Gamut +Nvidia 8800 GTS 

    I understand that calibrating the monitor is 
setting it in a "standard" way so that
    Black and White display
 is OK for non color-managed applications . 
    Colors may be 
special, especially with Wide Gamut monitors.

    Now the 
questions for Photoshop display ONLY :

  - Assuming 8-bit LUTs in
 monitor and graphics card, and not-so-bad monitor,
    is it better 
to calibrate AND profile, each missing RGB LUT value resulting in 
256x256 missing colors
    is it better to set monitor as 
"standard" reset to factory, graphics card LUT linear, and ONLY profile.

 - What procedure can I use to compare the two versions - what value is 
representative ?
     Difference with ICC v2 / ICC v4 ? 

  - I
 get "Effective LUT entry depth seems to be 12 bits" ; does it mean my 
graphics card supports 12-bit input ?
    Any software using this 
capability ?

Thanks for replying - and telling me (or pointing to
 tutorial) how to "log in" the argyll list !
