    colors of pictures will STILL be the same.right or wrong?
    seriously, you are just too lazy to try... you got the PC, you got the monitor, just set it and take a look... why bother to ask this kind of question when you can see the answer yourself in a minute or 2..

Try to see if there is an "ADVANCED" mode for your spyder2 calibration and do not use any "Easy" or "Simple" calibration option as such calibration is only as good as the amount of effort you place in the setup. If all else fails, turning the brightness down to min before calibration is worth trying.

    Do ensure that your room has even and constant illumination at all times of the day, if it doesn't time to invest in blinds/curtains and proper 5500K lighting. Does your spyder2 test the amount/colourtemp of the ambient lighting during setup?

    If one doesn't intend to mess with all these, getting a mac in the first place is a good idea, but even a mac benefits from a good calibration although the defaults are pretty good in the first place if brightness is at minimum, I'm typing from a G5 at work as I speak and I still prefer my calibrated Dell 30" at home.

    Since you already have invested in a good PC setup, your solution would be to overcome your tech-phobia and attempt to figure out this mess. This knowledge will aid you greatly in future as you will know the basics of making all your gear work for you.

    i already just tried.
    i tune down the monitor to lowest and recalibrated.still to bright.

    and i even use the nvidia program to tune down even further b4 calibrating.still same.

    ok, i tried lowering the reso.

    what happens is the fonts in browser all becomes a distinct blur.it's definitely not as sharp as full res.

    and other reso settings, the words become stretched.

    the max reso seems to be the best settings but the fonts are way to small.

    i just read cnet reviews on the 27inch.

    http://reviews.cnet.com/Dell_2707WFP...ag=prod.txt.10

    All of these overactive whites and black blacks serve to make saturated colors in movies, photos, and graphics practically leap off the screen. Likewise, extremely light colors remain visible and defined. The 2707WFP has no gamut-mapping problems at these extremes. However, at various levels of saturation between the two extremes--the middle 55 percent or so--there are pockets of colors that the display can't reproduce properly. This display also has poor brightness uniformity: on a black screen, you can clearly see light emanating from three of the four corners. There's also various red and green color contamination visible in grayscale midtones, and lighter blues look positively purple

    At the non-native resolutions the font WILL be blurry unless it's set at an integer fraction of the native resolution. Resampling with some sort of naive anti-aliasing at work - otherwise some of the lines will just remain single lines while others becomes double the width.

    read more reviews next time before buying... and don't rush to buy the first product out there.
