Frustro-Ation3d

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So back when I built my PC, I could have done more...research. Its not that its a bad build, its just that I wants me some 3D!!!! I got the Acer GD235HZ 23.6in Widescreen LCD, thinking that 120 Hz was all that was needed (and I could just get some kind of 3rd party glasses/transmittor)

So I am reading about this thing called IZ3D, and it sounds cool enough...but it does not seem like it will work with my monitor, as my monitor is 3D vision only...what a piss off!

I am wondering, will this monitor ever be an option for me, or will it just sit there in all its 120 Hz glory, 2D only in relation to AMD/ATI?

So help me god AMD, ill sell you off and go Intel/Nvidia and never look back if 3D is a no go. Is there any viable options at the moment that competes with 3D vision AND does not require me to order internationally? I am willing to buy a new monitor if need be...

as always, thanks for any and all help.

3D gaming is just a niche for now. Be a happy camper and sit on your 5970 for a while.

Perhaps you could sell your HD 5970 and get a GTX 570 or 580 and get a pair of nVidia 3D vision glasses (or borrow your roommate's glasses since he/she has 3D vision)
