I'm doing a video preview to the monitor via a Blackmagic Extreme 3D card with SDI. It give me a couple different options to output, and I'm not sure which one to choose that would accurately reproduce my playback. There's Blackmagic HD 23.976, but then there's three options: 8bit, 10bit, and RGB. I'm going with 8 bit, right now, which is probably my source video. But my monitor can handle 10bit right? Maybe that's better, or does it really matter? Would RGB be for non-broadcast projects?

(My monitor is the Flanders Scientific CM170, and I'm running Win7)

If the media is 10 bit then yes 10bit would be better. If not then don't bother. The RGB is for film or web based content usually.
