i usually find it best to use defaults all the way across the board as far as color balance and gamma, stuff like that

the only thing i would touch is turning the color temperature to blue or user on the monitor itself

LCDs are good at being perfect imo

Typically it should come very calibrated-To check you can use quickgamma(free) or if you are a serious person then a spyder($100) -I use a spyder becuase the thing owns+I can just resell on ebay and it guarantees great color
