Don't care as long as I have to wear glasses.

I voted "Not sure" at this point.

I'm losing interest in gaming lately, but that's nothing that a truly solid title or 2 wouldn't fix. :) The only reason I mention that is that I see 3d gaming as the next level of eye-candy, and I understand it's fantastic, but it would take more than eye candy to hold my interest, and convince me to invest in the tech.

I can't see in 3D, so no.

They don't, and I doubt you will see one any time soon. They still haven't released any 27" TN panels yet.

The tech has always been interesting to me. I remember trying so hard to locate some cheap cardboard 3D glasses back when I had my GF4 so I could try the stereo mode. :lol: Gave up after a while- couldn't find 'em anywhere.

I think the technology has a long way to go yet. I kinda' agree with grey where it's gonna' be the new eye-candy. And eventually it'll probably be pretty common for gaming. But when that happens I'm sure they'll have it more ironed out and it'll be more affordable. I could see this being a hoot right now on a 55" tv or such.

Question about this- can you do 3D with a projector? I know for LCD you need 120hz... how does that work with a projector? :o

I was a skeptic till 3 weeks back. BUt 3d has made me get back into pc gaming. I just installed about 75 updates from windows on my gaming pc. That will tell you how long I have been away from pc gaming...lol

Yep, right now other than the handful of 120hz monitors, only DLP television and projectors work. I'm not sure exactly how it works with a projector, but Nvidia has a list of them on their site.

I'm afraid to see what it looks like because I don't want to spend the money. I haven't even seen a movie in 3d in my life. I do have a virtual boy and all of its 13 or so games so that's the closest I've been to 3d gaming. Don't think that counts though.
