Well you need to use the ICC profile... then it shouldn't be too yellow for you. And if it is, that's a problem with your expectation, not the monitor. That ICC profile (and the RGB/brightness values) assures that your monitor displays the color your computer sends to the display. Very important for photo work, and just interesting in its own right.

Stick with it for a few weeks; it will slowly become natural to you. smile.gif You will start to be surprised when you use someone else's computer, though; very few people have monitors anywhere close to correctly calibrated! I had a friend over a few days ago, and we were playing minecraft. He made a comment about some block or other (I've forgot what): "Hey, why are those so red/purple/whateveritwas?" ... "Because that's the color they're supposed to be!"
