What's pro and con about 3d nvidia glass?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have gtx 570 sc and Asus VG236 120hz monitor. I'm thinking to get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814998052

I only play counterstrike source, starcraft 2, teamfortress 2, bfbc2 vietnam, and league of legends. ive been hearing good and bad things about 3d nvidia glass, so im not sure if it's worth buying 3d nvidia glass.

another question, what happens if gtx 570 sc can't keep up the 120 fps, and do i need constant 120 fps to use 3d nvidia glass?

I don't know the pros and cons of the Nvidia glasses, I've heard that they are pretty good, and the 3D effect is pretty nice.

As far as having to keep up to 120fps, no it doesn't. It realistically just has to keep 60+ fps to look good which will be 30fps (it gets cut in 1/2) which as long as you keep the settings decent, a 570 should be more than able to keep up with 60+ fps in pretty much every game. 120fps would be ideal as that is the sync rate of the monitor, but not necessary.

Agree It cracks me up how some would tell others you need to maintain 120fps which is not true. As long as you have a 3D monitor (120MHz) and have good GPU(s), you are good to go

Buy the glasses from Amazon not Newegg because Amazon's return policy is very lenient while Newegg will probably charge you a re-stocking fee if the box is opened.

Amazon even pays for return shipping for returns if you say the product was defective. So if you don't like the 3D glasses and decide to return it, tell Amazon the product is defective (just check off a box) and in the explanation box say something like 3D hurts my eyes.

For something like 1/5 of people, 3D just doesn't play nice with their eyes. I haven't seen any studies that explains if this is because of slight defects or different sensitivity levels of what.

Certainly no harm in trying if you can return the product. I did not expect to be impressed when I added 3D to my Dell laptop build for a nominal fee, but I was amazed by it when I tried it out over the weekend.
