Which colour profile would be best suited to my needs ??????

I have just recently started to take an interest in making quality prints and to that end I bought an Epson R 2000 printer.

Once I started to print my photos I found that the prints were darker than what was seen on the iMac display, this was compensated for by altering the brightness of each photo prior to printing.  Then searching on DP review I find that the recommendation is to calibrate your display which is not a cheap undertaking using something like Colour Munki.

So I started to look at the actual set up controls for the iMac display I found that there are a number of profiles in the colour controls for the display, 6 or 7 of these profiles are Nikon profiles which are probably added when you load up the Nikon software NX2.

My question to you more experienced computer buffs, is what would be the best profile for me to initiate considering I use a D700 and D800 Nikon cameras.

Your opinions will be most appreciated.
