- 3 LCD Glasses and Emitters
- 4 Hardware combinations that work
This is a 22inch (20inch viewable) monitor which can be configured at 1280x1024 at 120 Hz
- A90: cheap low end 19". Good investment
- G220fb: nicer 21" monitor. Also good, supports much higher refresh rates than the A90.
- G225f: Seems to be ViewSonic's latest offering. Pushed it to 119.9 Hz. I tried several different
resolutions, starting from max, before it gave me the ~120 Hz refresh. This monitor was plug and play a new Dual G5 (6/06), the awesome Quadro FX 4500, and NuVision 60GX Emitter/Glasses Combo. Very choice if you have the means.
- Samsung SyncMaster 191T+ (Digital Flat Panel) -- very nice
- FP2141SB-BK (A high-refresh display for stereo 3D graphics) -- What Warren uses (at 1440x1050).
Graphics cards : Stereo-ready
NVidia release proprietary drivers for its cards. Linux drivers for 32-bit and 64-bit can be downloaded from their site.
This is a very fast and stable graphics card. It has an AGP 8X interface.
While not Quadro cards, these are still very good, cheaper alternatives.
- GeForce 5600 XTQ -- nice low end card (4000-5000 FPS in glxgears 1600x1200 dual)
- GeForce 5950 Ultra -- nice mid level card (~9000 FPS in glxgears 1600x1200 dual)
- GeForce 6800 Ultra -- nice high end card (>14,000 FPS in glxgears 1600x1200 dual)
LCD Glasses and Emitters
These glasses can handle a very high refresh rate (at least 120 Hz)
Hardware combinations that work
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100 graphics card + Iiyama HM204DT monitor + Nuvision 60GX glasses
This combination provides a very pleasant 3D experience which won't fatigue your eyes.
