Is 3D vision THAT great? I have only seen videos, and read reviews. I have never tried it out.
Like, do professionaly FPS gamers chose to play on 3D? I dont understand the hype personally. Is playing BF3 on 3D that much greater than on just a gtx580?
I do not know anyone who owns a 3D setup, and I cant afford one right now. So please enlighten me on the whole deal.
And what is 3D Sound?
Hardcore FPS players pretty much never play in 3D unless they want to have fun i guess.. just my 2 cents.
Ever watched a 3D movie? You can easily see that in a 3D movie the 3d effects might be so awesome that you would always opt to watch it in 3D instead of 2d.
This is exactly the same with games.
Pretty much every single game i played is so awesome to play in 3d (with a good hardware of course) that i would not go back to 2D gaming of that specific game..
Lets take a loot at Battlefield 3.
I played the game last month for a long time and loved it. Today tested it in 3D and loved it even more. However i had to decrease the graphics quality as in 3D the frame per second gets cut in half.. So lets say that if you are having 50 FPS in Battlefield 3, with exact settings in 3D you would get 25 fps per eye which would be unplayable. Thats why you will have to disable AA or other settings to get 50 fps per eye. In other words those settings would give you 100 fps in 2D mode.
In modern games that an issue but in lesser demanding games its not.
I mean I am playing Duke Nukem Forever in 3D now and i have pretty much everything in FULL...
3D is tricky.
Some will love it and some will hate it.
You ought to try it for yoursef
And a GTX 580 is just fine in 3D although i can easily see that the best possible experience would be either 570 SLI or 580 SLI or a single 590
3D surround on the other hand is where you have 3 monitors next to each other and have a surround effect. 2D surround itself is demanding and 3D surround is of course extremely more demanding that i doubht a 580 will be able to handle it.
