honestly, you won't *know* if there is an appreciable differnce (or one that matters to you) until you try them both.

you are never going to get 100% match between monitor and print and you can always tweak your calibration target. Many of us do not use D65/6500 but something between that and say, 5800 or so. There are very few hard and fast rules other than you're trying to get the monitor to match the print in the light the print will be shown in.

Why do you use 5800 instead of 5000?

I assume that most likely the print will eventually be shown under incandescent or halogen light.
