Anyone know where i can download a sophisticated test card picture so i can fine tune my monitor?

Preferabley 1280 x 1024 in size,

Just that iv noticed some imbalances when playing games and i want my rig, setup and tuned to perfection.

Not sure about a 1280x1024 but there lots of good advice and test cards and a whole lot more click here

There's some downloadable test cards, plus lots of other calibrating gubbins.

Just a suggestion which worked for me when tweaking the monitor?
Take a photograph of the room where the computer is situated and put the picture on the monitor.
You can then tweak the monitor to match the actual colours of the room you are in.
Light and dark browns can be difficult colours to match properly.
Get those right and you're laughing!!!

My games do look better now that iv tweaked all my settings.

I have a laptop, will your links allow me to alter the TFT screen to calibrate colours, because I can't find out how to alter them?
Thanks
David
