First, get an appropriate monitor .inf and .icm file from the
manufacturer. You're going to need it to get the proper Colorspace
profile and gamma information.

Next, when you install your monitor, it should set it's own colorspace.
Usually sRGB or some variant based on it. Other more high end
monitors, like my Philips, have a built in Colorific profile that's
assigned and a fixed temperature, gamma, etc.

The last place you want to adjust your color settings is the video card.
The NVidia control panel has very few controls overall and should only
be used for minor adjustments. Keep the digial vibrance off at all
cost. Basic curve adjustments can help get rid of green/yellow casts
from bad lighting and other artifacts.

You might want to think about getting a proper calibration application,
but with a little tweaking, the monitor controls should get it close enough.

Is that card (is it a FX5200 or a Ti4200?) a VIVO model? If not, you can't
capture video on it. If it is, you need the nVidia WDM driver installed
(that's the driver to enable the Video In capturing).
