If not: ALWAYS use sRGB, or you are virtually certain to get false colour.

If - and only if - your monitor is hardware calibrated and profiled, and you use only colour-managed software, then you might consider Adobe RGB for the reasons others have said. Better still: use raw.

My Monitor is not calibrated, it is a 4 year old iMac.

The display in preferences says iMac calibrated.
There are other options,  ANY SUGGESTIONS that I need to change.
