If your monitor can't show the AdobeRGB spectrum it really doesn't matter. Or if you're mainly doing online use and basic print, Just use sRGB

This!

The vast majority of monitors (and probably 99.9% of non photographers, including clients) don't support Adobe RGB so shooting in and more importantly exporting in Adobe RGB can only lead to disappointment IE - "That's NOT how it looked on my monitor!"

I think we (gear head photogs) get caught up in Adobe RGB because it's the purest of pure, offering the most extensive color array. But I'm not sure that it matches reality.

Then again, I could be very wrong, LOL.
