    "Extremely upgrade the performance and take enthusiasts DirectX 10 and DirectX 10.1 gaming beyond HD."

    You'd be lucky to get to HD resolutions with playable framerates on a 240.

    I know, I know! Bioshock 2 is not in HD and does not have Blazing Fps with GT240! Surely Bioshock is the odd one out!
     
    TIGR says thanks.

    Wow, you get a "free" set of $1 paper red/blue "3D" glasses with your graphics card, isn't that kind of them...
    Got a pair of Nvidia ones knocking around somewhere already...

    i got to test a pair of the nvidia 3d glasses they are excellent (as long as you have 120hz monitor) the glasses and decent setup , theres no funny colors and double vision, cod with a sniper rifle was loads of fun

    normal paper 3d glasses with 3d discovery are pretty good as well specially with games like batman aa (works alot better than watching those 3d movies on tv with paper glasses). plus its cheap and abit of fun to play with.:)

    I'm a bit confused:

    Did they bundle the REAL 3D vision glasses... in which case this is a fantastic offer, OR

    Did they bundle a pair of paper red/greenovisions... in which case this is laughable

    Yes, the real 3D vision glasses on a 120Hz monitor are amazing. Like me, you probably think it is all hype and BS, but no, test them, you will be amazed just like I was. (It was a need for speed demo that I saw, not necessarily the best game, but the 3D really was impressive)

    Yeah, 3D Vision Discover is the retro blue-red glasses, glasses you can buy anywhere. The drivers that split the image can be downloaded for free from NVidia. This bundle is garbage.
