Default recommend some games for the iz3d monitor

just went on an impulse and bid on a brand new iz3d monitor on ebay, and surprisingly won with my low bid of US $191. Can someone recommend some good games to get, to experience 3d? I believe the monitor comes with its own glasses.

Assuming the 3d features don't vary from game to game - i think portal would be quite fun in 3d.

How do you select the 3d, is it an NVidia driver feature or soemthing? I really know nothing about it.

Nice deal at that price. Would love to try it out, but they really need to get some more models out and bigger sizes..

I am fine with the sizes available, but the prices right now for a 1080p 3d monitor is too much for me. I will just wait for them to come down in price.

I know 1680*1050 isn't ideal but its not a bad trade off for what you are getting. Image this with eyefinity.

thye have their own drivers. Theres something abt configuring it as 2 displays in nvidia's controlpanel. WIll know more when I get it. I have been reading some reviews on mtbs3d.com, and looks like Batman:AA and RE5 are the games to get for now.

Given the current frame lag issue, classed as a 'cheat' by Punkbuster and mostly broken DX10/11 support i'm not sure i would want one atm. Particularly as you have a nvidia card that could use a 120hz display n glasses.

Calling it not ideal considering that those who are gonna spend this kind of money are used to really high resolutions. Honestly until we see 1920x1200 and higher or bezel less monitors I really don't see me buying either multiple monitor or 3d set ups.

They sell 3D at a price of $15.
Any idea how it is in terms of features and performance compared to the $150 nvidia glasses (much more expensive although comes with a few extras)?

Also will any 3D glasses work with any 3D monitor, or certain glasses/monitors will not work or not work well with each other?
