I have read that Rivatuner or the EVGA equivalent program can cause this. I think it's call EVGA precision tool or something along those lines.

I tried disabling EVGA Precision and the flickering did seem to decrease. It still flickers some but at least that was an improvement

Have you checked to make sure there is no light sources interfering with the glasses. Even a second monitor can through enough light to make a difference.

Will light cause the glasses to not go dim for s split second and that's what causes the flickering?

When you set up your 3DVision, what mode did you put it in? I think there are three modes: single computer isolated in a room, single computer in a room with lots of other electronics, or multiple computers in a room.

I remember having the flickering issues when I had it set on the first mode, but then I switched it to the second mode (as I had a TV and another computer and a PS3 in the same room), and turned the refresh rate to 110Hz, and the flickering went away. Also I think having the latest drivers help too (running the 1.10 beta driver CD here).

Default Re: GTX 285 + GeForce Vision

I upgraded to 3d vision at the weekend and WoW is looking totally amazing - I notice so much detail that I didn't see before and have spent the last 3 days when I'm online just wandering round gawping at characters - shaman look the best . I'm even stopping dead to stare at boring things like warlock summoning portals emerging from the ground.

Did my first raid yesterday and no headaches to report - the only problem I have is wearing my glasses / the 3d glasses and 5.1 headphones at the same time, I have to readjust them every hour as things start to press on my noggin rather! My eyes are still learning I think too - they are getting quicker at swapping between the 3d and 2d elements (ie game interface).

I'm using a 4ghz i7 920 and SLI gtx280 with the samsung 120hz monitor - a step down in screen size for me but I really think it's worth it - the monitor is very fast and a better monitor for 2d gaming (quake wars, openGL and no 3d yet) than my old dell 2407

I have tried a bunch of games: COD4, Fallout3, NWN2, Civ4, Railroad Tycoon 3, Planetside, Crysis Wars, Spore, Sims3, Section 8 (beta), Unreal Tournament 3 - they all work at least reasonably in 3D.

I really hope 3D has a chance this time round of taking off - its time has come!

Well if you are going to get the ATI card. Don't bother with the 3D Vision. You need an Nvidia card for it to work.
That is why i'm waiting to check out the GTX300.

It does work fine with video's and movies. Providing they are 3D. It works a hell of a lot better than the old red/blue glasses.
