Is there a way to tweak monitor gamma/colour correction?

Newcomer to EndeavourOS and very impressed, I do have question if I may.

I have three monitors and although I can adjust the RGB settings on the monitors themselves for a reasonable match I would like to know if there is way to do this on a per monitor basis from within the OS?

Someway to make adjustments, gamma and RGB, see the effect in real time and save them?

I have a fairly old Radeon card HD 6950 at the moment but could use an Nvidia card, GTX 1070Ti if it would be more useful, and Intel integrated gpu. I can’t really afford a newer gpu with the current prices. I don’t need gaming graphics abilities, but do some video editing and photography.

Looking below do I have the most useful gpu drivers?

Thank you for the links, I’d looked on the archlinux package search and aur search though from there couldn’t work out which were worth following up on.

I’ll check your links, thank you.
