What profile you use for the display is subjective. Use whatever profile looks good to YOU. Of course if you are trying to match displays to a printer output, that's a whole other problem. Still haven't got mine right.

Lcd color calibrated, or you can calibrate it yourself. it also depends on what output you're intending/meaning, print, web, etc. like I've said many times before, if anyone needs help setting up their icc color profiles, talk to me. though Im quite sick atm with the flu, I love color management.

My colors come out all right, just a little dull and flat; even on coated photo paper.
But then I'm using an old Epson 740i. Cant afford a new one right now.

you don't really need a new or newer printer to color manage.
