Well first you will need a nVidia graphics card thats a 8series or higher.

Next you will need these nVidia 3d Glasses

Finally you will need a monitor that is capable of a 120Hz refresh rate.

Now with all of these items you will be able to enjoy your 3d experience.

There are a few options for "3d-capable" monitors/tv/projectors out there. Depending on your budget is what will determine your selection.
Now if you think these lcd monitor/tv's are to expensive you can still bust out a old CRT monitor that is capable of running @ 120Hz and have no problems with that either.

This is definitely not a cheap item by any means but it was worse every penny in my book. I play nearly ALL my games in 3d except for Counter-Strike: Source because the crosshair doesnt focus properly when looking down a map.

I hope this helps.

I have really been interested in this but have NO idea what the actual effect with these glasses is - can you elaborate how "3D" it actually is? How different is it than playing a standard game?

The best way to put it is if you ever seen a "3d" movie... But if not, everything has depth and even at times depending on what game your playin even looks like things pop out at you. It's pretty trippy, I find myself sometimes tryin to grab things but I know I wont be able to lol.

Edited -
I think this idea is really cool, but I might wait for Display Port connector based hardware, so that I can go higher than 1680x1050.

Haha Thank you sir, I think I spent some of my tax return very wisely getting the monitor and glasses.

I use this damn near every day on every game completely worth the 600$ price tag(monitor+glasses)

Im not familiar with the setup , but if its like regular 3d doesn't it have to render the scene more then once to get the 3d look? i remember watching old 3d movies and if you take the glasses off you see like the picture x 3 or so...Thats gotta put some load on your hardware no? what kind of framerate hit to you take enabling the 3d? it sounds awesome...my monitor is only 60hz though so i wont be trying it out anytime soon...

jtravapd your right when you do take the glasses off its almost unrecognizable (on highest depth) not so bad on very low.

With my setup depending on what game of course, i can get anywhere from 45-60fps the whole time.
