Hey guys.

I was checking out the 3D Vision and it sounds very impressive!

Although only 2 pc monitors can actually use it. This is the monitor I am checking out:

It's pretty pricey but it has decent specs and it's 120Hz too which is nice.
Ive read up about the benefits of the monitor and then with 3D vision it really sounds like a good investment for the future.

Left 4 Dead is supposed to look amazing!

Me and my brother are considering making this invested, but what do you guys think of it??

Actual 3D gaming sounds damn impressive to me!!!

Anyone here have this?? what do you think??

Used an identicle system at university when looking into writing 3D code into my game enigine (uni project) and although it does add some 3D effect the cost of it makes it not worth it at the moment - you have to keep the glasses charged and although decent the effect wasn't worth the cost, maybe in a couple of years it will be worth it but not quite yet (IMO of course, some people thought it was pretty good).
