adobe gamma wizard

what settings should I use or do you recommend? The gamma wizard gives option in the beginning like adobe RGB and Photoshop options and NTSC option to pick from along with a list of others. I use photoshop7 and premiere 6. What would be my best pick? I am using duel monitors , one is a Mitsubishi diamond 17" crt and the other is a G70f b viewsonic 17" crt. Also the warm light ,coollight option I am not sure on either . Can anyone give a suggestion? Thanks

TV gamma is 2.2 with a color temperature of 6500k. NTSC broadcast monitors generally standardize with SMPTE C phosphors.

For my own setup in Photoshop, I work in the Adobe RGB color space, which is the largest available and best all-around. The worst is SRGB. It's limited and not well-suited to any particular application.

Ideally, you'd use something like a Monaco Optix to calibrate your computer monitor. I do that for one computer, which is designated to do print/prepress work, and the other, which is set up for video.
