Just use sRGB

So are you saying to change the monitor (listed in prefs):
Here are Nikon ones:

Don't take this the wrong way or personally please. If you are asking which -working color space- you should use for a -monitor profile-, you do not understand color management at all. Unless you plan to read a couple of books on this subject and invest in a wide gamut monitor + calibration hardware, just use sRGB and enjoy your new camera. Especially given the printer you mention, you won't see ANY difference in the final output using aRGB etc.

I would suggest you do RAW + JPEG capture even if you don't plan to process the RAW files right now. Possibly in the future you might expand your processing skills and having the RAW file will allow you to do more with those images later. I use JPEGs and sRGB 99% of the time but I still capture RAW in case I need more information than the JPEG has captured or I plan to print it out on a high end printer, which is maybe 1% of my images.
