Anyone try the 3d vision for nvidia? Wondering if it is worth the money to put a rig together for it.

I've been thinking about this also - I just bought a pair of BenQ XL2410Ts (mainly for the refresh rate and low input lag) but am curious about the 3D Vision also. Wish there was a way to use passive glasses with it, I have a few sets laying around!

From what I read passive glasses may work, if you have a proper refresh rate and an eligible nividia card it is worth a shot. There is also a program I read that works with the old red/blue ones

Have a read here: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/4676...sion-club.html. Lots of useful info.

That indeed looks helpful but is very long. From what I have seen Plasmas by the very definition have sufficient refresh rates for the glasses correct?

I don't think so. LCD and plasma TV's so-called "120Hz and up" are not true 120Hz. They can not accept 120hz input. Only certain PC monitors can do it.

However, there is a way to use 3D ready TV/projector with its own glasses: it's software from nvidia called "3D TV Play", that lets you connect 3D TV to nvidia card and see 3D effects on TV using TV's glasses. You don't need separate 3D kit for that. Only specific models are approved for that, and as far as I know, its not 1080p @ 120Hz. It does 720p @ 60Hz, and I think with HDMI 1.4 it supports 1080p @ 24Hz. Still, 3D effect is there, as with the pc monitor, and you can play games and watch moves in 3D.

I can't personally comment on quality of 3D or any other aspect of 3D on 120Hz monitor vs 3D TV, as I never seen 3DTV play in action. Maybe someone who has it can chime in. nvidia's page for it is here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/3dtv-play.html

Owned it for close to two years now. Better be ready to put together a expensive rig. 3D Vision is VERY COOL but takes a hell of a rig to run it well. Dual Cards if you want 1900x1080 x3 screens, few hun more for a 3d monitor and another couple for the glasses.

3D vision is NOT JUST FOR GAMES, there are many sites that cater to 3d setups, there are 3d movies, you can take your own 3d pics and display them on sites or for your own "entertainment" also its nice to have a 3d setup for futureproofing imo.

There are many who scorn the 3d fad but i have yet to find one person who has not been blown away by my setup. It changes you.

There are problems too, its not perfect even with a beast rig. Its about a 500-600 extra on the build price so really decide and build accordingly. If i could do it over, honestly, id go for 3 monitors as you would get far more bang for buck use from them.
