Basic 3D monitor questions
Hi, so I'm looking into buying a 3D ready monitor. I would buy the new 27" Asus that comes with the 3D vision 2, but I do not have room for the monitor. since there is no other official 23" monitor I have some questions about other brand monitors and some basic 3D tech questions

1) Does Nvidia 3D vision work with any "3D" labeled monitor?

2) Are the Nvidia 3D vision 2 glasses active or passive?

3) Now are the monitors either passive or active as well? And if so how would I tell?

Im looking at this [url="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005254"]LG[/url] because its 3D ready, however it talks about its own 3D software, could I just throw that out and use the nvidia 3D vision instead?

Thanks in advance.

No way...

Get this...

1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236206

2. Or get a 50 in or larger active shutter 3DTV for 700-800$

3. Or get the Sony HMD for 600.00

You will be happy with all 3 if you are playing the games on the Helix fix list, or other recommended games on this forum

If you dont have Dual 680's in SLI than I would recomend option #2 or #3

You will never get 60fps with option #1 anyway.

Option #3 is the way for you.

You can get TrackIR and have head tracking in flight sims and first-person shooters.

You are lucky!

What card do you have?

Best bet is 720p 3D gaming with that card.

Get the Sony HMD for 600.00

You will freak out.

Get this also if you want head tracking...

If you want a monitor though, and not headgear, most 120hz monitors (3d ready) will work. If you have a specific smaller one in mind, post a link and I'm sure someone here will be able to help you out.

You can find a bunch of specifically supported monitors here as well:
