3D Vision on 120hz CRT
Hello.
I want to purchase nvidia 3d glasses but first I also want to know what kind of cables/adapters would I need, as i own a Philips 109P4 CRT 120 hz monitor (1024*768, 1200*900......etc @120hz). The monitor has both D-Sub and H/H+V V R G B ports. I saw 3d Vision on a bloody Vision Master CRT and the ghosting was minimal/acceptable. PC: AMD opteron 165 @ 2.7 , 2GB DDR400 CL2, 8800GT. I can't afford to buy nvidia ready LCDs or LEDs or any HD 120hz monitor or tv. I also want to ask if aftermarket nvidia3d compatible glasses are as good as the original ones...they are twice as cheap.

Thank you,
Izzi

I was doing 3D on a CRT up to 2 days ago, I switched from LG T910BU 19" to the BenQ XL2420TX LCD. You will be able to do 3D on your monitor but you'll need older driver as nVidia [url="http://3dvision-blog.com/7267-3d-vision-no-longer-supports-generic-crt-monitors-in-stereo-3d/"]dropped support of CRT[/url]. I have no idea why they did this seriously. Anyway.

You will need to install older driver and IIRC, it was 277.53 that worked the best for me.

It worked well but had some crosstalk (or ghosting) and now that I got the LCD, I can tell you it's much more pleasant. First, playing in full HD (16:9 vs 4:3) and almost no more crosstalk, if I look for it i can see it in some situations.

Before I got my Acer 5360 DLP projector, I was using my Sony GDM-FW900 for 3D. It worked well, but did show a lot of ghosting compared to the projector. I've heard that LCD monitors are much better overall for 3D than CRTs due to CRT phosphor decay causing a lot of ghosting. I still love my FW900 for 2D gaming and overall non-game use. The picture is gorgeous.

I connect my FW900 to my PC using a DVI-to-BNC cable (like your monitor's H/H+V V R G B ports). In order to use this type of cable, I use a monitor.inf driver file that unlocks all resolutions and refresh rates for the monitor. With this, I can run the monitor at 1280x800 at 120 Hz.
