You can refer here for the list of monitors that supports Nvidia's technology.
I would say, 24" monitors are the average these days. 23" are more common when it comes to 3D / 120Hz though.
For the S23A750D, You could read about user's experience here
Since you're using a nvidia card, i suggest getting a monitor that supports nvidia's technology.
However, are you going to use the monitor for its 120Hz feature or are you going to watch movies / game in 3D as well?
**About your question on the difference of the 750 and 950 series, i'll quote the FAQ taken from OCN's Samsung SA950 and SA750 Owners Club
Q : What is the difference between SA750 and SA950 ? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
A: The differences is the stand and SA750 has no DVI input. The panels are the same and all other specs should line up. (You will have to use DisplayPort for 120hz no adapters for SA750)

When you say it supports Nvidia 3d, is there a special hardware inside of a specific monitor for it to be considered Nvidia 3d-ready?

Actually, which would be wiser? Using it for its 120 Hz refresh rate or for 3d? I can switch between those modes if I like, right?

So technically the 750D is not good for mainstream computers since they usually use Dual-DVI connections?

For 3d and 120 Hz, do I need to use dual-DVI instead of HDMI 1.4 for optimal performance?

I don't think it requires a special hardware inside to be considered Nvidia 3d-ready seeing as how the S27950D could be hacked to support it, albeit not fully. It has to do with propriety drivers that Nvidia licenses to these monitor manufactures.

I would say, it'll be wiser to go 120Hz compared to 3D as, with 3D, fps of your games would be half of what they used to be, since the GPU has to render 2 frames (Left & Right) for the 3D effect. 3D should work fine in movies but from what people have been saying, some movies would have the "pop up" effect while some would still be rather bland.

Also, to utilize 120Hz in games, your fps in games should ideally be above 60Hz. Most ideally would be 120Hz for you to experience the best of what 120Hz can offer. Either you go SLI or play older games.

Unless your GPU has a Display port output, you might experience some issues with the 750D. Perhaps you could use an adapter but I'm not sure of how it'll perform.

You would need to use the Dual DVI connection to experience 3D / 120Hz. HDMI 1.4 lacks the bandwidth to support 120Hz so your refresh rate would still be stucked at 60Hz.

Thanks for the info. So if I go with just the 120 Hz mode, what benefit am I getting?

For monitors without dual DVI link but with DisplayPort interface, how do they render 3D 120 Hz? I swear that I've read somewhere that HDMI 1.4 supports 3D already?

I guess I have to make my own thread for this topic smile.gif

120Hz would depend on your eyes. Some people claim that it makes no difference and some claims that it would smoothen the way images appear on screen. Basically, motion would be smoother on 120Hz compared to 60Hz. I've read that while scrolling on 120Hz, you would be able to read the texts on a page whereby on 60Hz they would appear gibberish / blurry.

Monitors without dual DVI link would either require you to get an adapter for Displayport to Dual DVI or for you to have a Graphic card that comes with a display port interface.

About the HDMI 1.4 supporting 3D, this i am not quite sure but a quick try on Google has led me to believe that only some monitors support this feature, mainly Viewsonic.

Ok. Any loss in quality in using a DisplayPort to Dual DVI?

Ok, so how different are those Viewsonic monitors that they can support 3D over HDMI?

Actually I may have read it wrongly.

I am not too sure on this. Perhaps someone else might be able to provide us with some information regarding 120HZ / 3D on hdmi.

There shouldn't be any loss in quality in my opinion when using adapters since both are digital signals.

Ok. But even if using that converter Nvidia 3d still won't be supported natively. What kind of "hack" do they use with those Samsung monitors?

Yes, Nvidia 3D only works with monitors that supports the technology as found in the link i provided on my earlier post.

The "hack" involves some kind of installation of a modified driver to trick the system in thinking that the monitor is in-fact Nvidia 3D certified.

I just ordered the dell u3011. Should come in tomorrow. I'm so excited. Will my gtx 590 be able to handle this beast?
