    Nvidia Control Panel and Gamma Control


    Hello:

    I'm considering purchasing a new pc. An important consideration in my choice is my control over fine tuning of display parameters:

    Brightness /Conrast /Gamma/ Color Saturation

    So I'm looking for PC with dedicated (rather than integrated) graphics card, which might give me the most control

    Which graphics cards have the Gamma setting as part of their Graphics Control?

    I do recall an Nvidia Control Panel which did have a calibrated gamma slider. Question is : Do all Nvidia Control Panels have that gamma setting nowadays? I believe Intel had removed that gamma setting from their control panel..So maybe Nvidia is doing that as well.

    The Inspiron Desktop 5680 I'm currently interested in does have that dedicated Nvidia control panel installed, but customer rep couldn't tell me if it had gamma setting or not...It is a rather costly desktop-probably on account of the Nvidia. So I'm wondering if less expensive pc's with different dedicated graphics cards might have that kind of control.

    I'm not a gamer, but I'm unusually sensitive to visual display. So gaming isnt a consideration. But display control is !

    Thanks much in advance

    Most setups have 3 ways of changing the Gamma.
    1. The Monitor controls.
    2. Windows colour management.
    3. Integrated graphics or Nvidia Control Panels.
    There is just as much adjustment in an Intel integrated graphics as an Nvidia Card.

    It is actually confusing to have 3 places for adjustments. Each can override the other, thus a messy result is easy to achieve.

    Perhaps desktops r different from laptops in this regard?
    I have Intel integrated graphics on the dektop pc i now have, and i find it very difficult to rapidly toggle gamma..mainly because of the user interface...Its east to put a Gamma setting if u intend to leave it on that level but very cumbersome to keep adjusting it per application
