Your only option is a 3Dvision glass. Either 1 or 2.

 

3Dvision 1 glass will work but you wont take advantage of the lightboost technology. So your best option is to purchase another pair of 3Dvision 2 glasses

 

If you want to get a 3Dvision 1 glass, this dude is selling his now

Ah I see

 

there are 2 differences between those glasses

 

3Dvision 2 Glasses support Lightboost technology where image will be brigheter.

 

Also 3Dvision 2 glasses are more comfortable and has a bigger viewing area compared to 3Dvision 1.

So there's no other option regarding 3rd party glasses that support Nvidia vision 2?

Not that I know of.

 

Actually it used to work but Nvidia stopped it from happening after some firmware updates.
