Calibrating An LCD Monitor

I am looking to make sure that my LCD monitor is calibrated to it's best settings for viewing and editing photos. First of all I have done a search through the forums for monitor calibration help. Unfortunately it seems that all of the threads are a few years old. I have downloaded and ran the calibration program that is suggested by A.net, but to me it seems that the program is focused towards CRT monitors and not LCD ones. I have even run the 'Adobe Gamma' program that I have on my computer which seems to have made the colors on my monitor more vibrant, but when I look at pictures, the quality of these pictures is not too good( to me they seem slightly overexposed). I also tried a program that comes with my video card a try to see if that helps, but there does not seem to be any real difference between the 'Adobe Gamma' program and the video card program.

I am open for suggestions on how to get the best settings for my monitor. I understand stand that there are devices on the market that will assist with monitor calibration. Please feel free to point out which ones people find work the best for them. If there are any freeware monitor calibration programs out there, then I can try those too.

My current monitor is a 19" Viewsonic VX910 LCD.

I uses Colorvision's Spyder 2. It works well for LCDs and CRTs. Prices range from $70 to $180. They have three to choose from depending on what you need.

I took a look at the CD and on my computer, but dont see the 'Perfect Suite' program anywhere. I even looked on the Viewsonic website and they dont have anything there either. I might be overlooking it somewhere, but I dont think it is available for my monitor. If you know where I can get it, then please let me know.
