Anyone know of a good tweaking program to pull out the most vivid color option for LCD display?

The monitor will have a "temperature" setting and your video card should have vibrance settings.

Yeah, I have tried those. Unfortunately Nvidia has not upgraded their drivers for Vista yet so that is not an option for me. I have tried the cool and warm settings for my monitor but the color is still not where I would like it.

Nvidia had a nice little tool on the XP driver that worked great but I can't access it at all on Vista yet.

Are there any programs out there than can help me do this. Kind of like the whole THX set up on dvds for TV monitors?

I did ssee where my monitor has individual RGB settings but I don't know how to effectively adjust those without some kind of chart to help me eyeball it.

I found this handy little app. Worked very well.
