I just wanted to relay my experience with nVidia 3D vision.

I got my new computer specifically set up to use with the 3D setup With an nVida GTX 680 video card.

I purchased an Asus monitor that supports a 144hz refresh rate.

I was worried that I was making this investment for something I had never seen in action, but I'm a 3D buff, I created many 3D images in Anaglyph format both still and video but it was always disappointing using the red blue glasses (I have dozens of pairs of different kinds).

Well I wan't disappointed, with 3D Vision, the results are unbelievable!!!!

Games are razor sharp and literally jump off the screen.
Everything looks sharp from right in front of you off into the distance.
Colors are bright and clear, and there's no double image.

When you load a game you can see if it supports 3D Vision because the green light on the emitter comes on.

When the game load a message comes up saying what the graphics setting for the game should be and asking you to hit Control Alt Insert to set them automatically and that's it.

It surpassed anything I had expected.

So far I've got Guild Wars 2, The Secret World, Tomb Raider Under World, and Tomb Raider Anniversary, up and running.

I'm downloading the client for Age of Conan right now.

It appears that for the most part I have to reinstall the games after the 3D was added.
Things that were already installed don't detect the 3 D.

When I get everything set up, I'll start figuring out how to create first some images and then video in the 3D vision format myself.

Gotta keep learning something new.
