    Color temp is a valid term. But the optimum temp would be whichever you like best.

    No, I know that 6500K is the standard for TV/DVD and normal TV viewing. But I was talking to my calibrator and he said that he heard the optimum for gaming was 9500K, but he was not sure about this. I was just trying to find out if this is true.

    So just what is supposed to be the bennefit of using one temp or another besides the obvious visual differences?

    at 6500k black is really black (0 IRE)

    At higher color temperatures black levels aren't really black (at least to my eyes)

    Then I'd have to say that the optimum setting is whichever looks best to you.

    Is this just more of the same?

    Whats up with the name calling, how old are we here? Second time you have personally attacked someone this thread alone, this time being a fellow frog so its taken kinda personally. If you want intelligent answers to your questions then you yourself must act more intelligent.

    But to answer your question i have never heard to there being a specific color temp being more perferable for gaming hen others. i would just go with whatever looks best to your eyes, since its you thats going to be seeing the colors on your monitor not the guy who told you 9500k

    Which may or may not be all that obvious to everyone; video, like sound, is highly subjective based on the individual and the environment in which they are using it.

    For me, either is fine; for dvds, true black is better, same for gaming, but not everyone's eyes are like mine, so whichever looks better to you for an individual application should be the one you use.
