Do you guys remember the burnout paradise game? The only game of the burnout series tohave been released on the PC.
It had 3d built in or may be I had used a mod, as far as I remember I had used the cyan and red glasses to get 3d working on my 60 hz monitor. It looked great but it gave me serious headaches. It wasn't the settings or choppiness, I get headaches even when I watch a 3d movie in a theater like the imax adlabs.
Maybe we can't get nvidia 3d vision but we can definitely get 3d. We don't need 120 even 98 or 60 should be fine.

I have a real good friend who is an Optometrist and he explained me that people who have headaches when watching 3D have some dificulty with focusing, even if they never realize it and that it´s perfectly treatable with some therapy / exercices.

3d vision was rough on my eyes at first too. It is with most people. Now I can handle depth that I couldn't imagine using when I first started using 3d vision.

Yeah ok so far that Asus ICC from TFTentral is the best one yet...but at 120Hz. Any lower is too bright. BF3 has an actual color palette it turns out! Seriously, maps like Caspian and Armored Shield have color and richness now that I sure have never seen before. And I did attempt calibrations on past displays...

I thought I would post this here just in case anyone is interested. This is a calibrated color profile for the Glossy X-Star at 115hz (although it should be pretty close for 120hz as well). Calibrated with an i1 Display Pro at native brightness (6500k).

Were your previous displays TN? I see lots and lots of people who go from TN to IPS or PLS mentioning they are now discovering BF3 has color to it... wink.gif. It took me a long time to figure out what everyone was talking about with the supposed "blue tint" which is mainly from TN panels, because the game itself has lots of color to it on good displays biggrin.gif. I finally played it on a notebook one day with a TN panel and found out what some people were talking about when claiming it was a dull, colorless game LOL.

EDIT: My X-Star DP2710 looks best with the Asus PB278Q v3 icc profile so far (same one you're using I think?)... 96hz though, hopefully tomorrow I make 120hz once my new cards arrive smile.gif.

This is... Strange. I was unable to do 120hz on day 1 when I got my QX2710. Now 2 weeks have passed, and I can now run it at 120hz without flickering. Was trying to change to 110hz after reinstalling my drivers and accidentally selected 120hz. What?

Maybe something was busted in your prior driver install? Another possibility, though this is pure speculation, is that the PCB they use on these monitors was "breaking in" like old CPU's used to for overclocking, where after some use they would generally overclock better vs. when they were first installed. Considering the relative complexity of these PCB's to modern tech, they may be more similar to older-style CPU's than newer wink.gif. This happened technically due to the electrical pathways setting themselves in along traces and transistors once used awhile. Would I be surprised to hear this is what happened if some all-knowing guy told me? Yeah... but I wouldn't be shocked in disbelief wink.gif.

I actually am not sure. 23" Apple Cinema, the 'Aluminum' ones from like late 2006. Got it used from work a few years ago. And the blue tint is actually a real thing but not all maps have it and proper calibration probably lessens it. Metro is one that definitely does. Metro in the Alpha did not have the tint, for the record (and which is the main proof it truly exists). You can find comparison shots around...

Yeah on 96Hz colors looked great still w/ this ICC but whites are too bright so I couldn't see some subtle borders and such in various things. Like that around and in the sig area here.
