[Official] Nvidia 3d Vision + 3d Surround Club - Page 108

post #1071 of 3476
Got my AW2310 delivered Thursday, I set it up Saturday, it's awesome, looks sick and I love the 120hz! I'm figuring out which card to get, leaning towards the 580, not sure yet... Still have to get the glasses too. Looking forward to 3D

Would there be a noticeable difference between the 1.5 Gb vs the 3Gb for 1 monitor, 3D 1080 gaming?

I don't think you'll really notice a difference for 3D gaming between 1.5GB and 3GB. If I were you, however, I would try and find a version of the GTX 580 with like 2GB'ish, but I don't know if there are any on the market. From what I'm experiencing with my 480 and my 1680x1050 monitor, 1.5GB is perfect for me, so I think 1.5GB might be just a tad bit short of what you need, but 3GB is a bit of overkill IMO.

Congrats on alienware, great monitor, I love mine.

3gb is not needed for 1080, unless you must run crazy levels of aa. And i never heard of 580s other than 1.5gb or 3gb models. I have 2 1.5gb 580s, and I yet to run out of vram on single monitor. Definitely suggest at least 1 580 for 3d, it's very demanding. Also, you can get wired glasses for 80 bucks (if you're in states), if you don't mind the wires.

1.5GB does the trick, even for 3D since it barely adds anything to VRAM usage. No reason to spend the cash on 3GB models unless you jump to a triple monitor setup.

Wow, there is profile for Serious Sam 3... Maybe it won't suck in 3D that much after all...
post #1076 of 3476
Wow haven't posted here in a long time....found THIS thread searching google to find CONSUMER ratings on SPECIFIC titles (for s3D).


I'll be "joining the club" in about a week, however one thing worries me. EA recently announced that they are abandoning, COMPLETELY, stereoscopic 3D.

Upon further research, I found that Alienware are no longer offering any sort of "3D bundle" PCs -- which they've WERE offering for the past year or more.

Now...I couldn't care less about EA's position on things generally speaking. We all hate EA. Unfortunately love or hate them, they are **VERY** powerful in the gaming industry and their opinions carry a lot of weight.

It just seems to me like more and more companies are abandoning this technology completely. I hope this isn't the case and if anyone has further info it would be much appreciated.

EDIT: Here's a link to what EA has been spreading to other developers in regards to s3D.

http://www.tgdaily.com/games-and-ent...-gaming-a-flop

It's all basically nonsense in my opinion. I have no doubt that if 3D TV's didn't cost 4x+ the amount of their 60hz equivalents (not including "extra glasses") that everyone would own one.

You'll be fine with 1.5 GB.

Not from what people with SLI/CrossFireX systems have said. There have been threads recently debunking this, like this one.

I'm seeing alot of conflicting information in this regard. Some say yes, some say no.

Either way I'm gonna edit that post and remove that information since I can't really verify it for sure.

REGARDLESS: 1.5GB is more than enough for running games a 1920x1080 on single monitor setups.

I'm going to guess at what that post was talking about and I'll tell the reality of the situation. VRAM gets mirrored when used in SLI because each card renders an entire frame, even for triple monitors. So if you have Two 1.5GB 580's in SLI you will only have 1.5GB of useable VRAM, not 3GB. The 590's only have 1.5GB per GPU, it says 3GB on the box for marketing purposes only.
