I found it irritating to wear the Cinema glasses during Avatar and was wondering if this would be similar experience.
Another concern I have is how the rig will perform. I am planning on this setup:
Asus P7P55D-E Pro
EVGA Geforce GTX470
G-Skill RipJaw 4GB DDR3 1600
WD 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6.0
In Win Maelstrom
I really would love to water cool this but have no idea where to begin with that. I also see myself eventually wanting to SLI this and maybe Vision Surround. What are your guys thoughts on this?
I wear glasses also and thought that it would be a nuisance to wear a second pair overtop. However the nosepieces that come with the 3D Vision kit are very accommodating. I have no problem wearing them for prolonged periods of time, as they fit well and are rubberized for non slip.
I think that your rig should perform very well, how high of an OC are you aiming for? 3.5-3.7 would be a healthy start. Also have you considered an SSD?
I am not the guy to talk to about watercooling though. I really recommend SLI though, I noticed with a single card it was very hard to run games at settings I was happy with. 3D is very taxing on GPU's, and if you ever want to run 3D Vision Surround you will need atleast 2 cards. 3 cards to run it well.
