Yeah without a problem in movies, however you might have to play on medium - high on very modern and demanding games.

Otherwise this setup should run very well. ^^

I also have another thing to point out, the CPU is very expensive and is not needed here. You should buy Core i5 4670K and use saved money on GTX 770 or GTX 760 (Whichever you can afford then) instead of 650 Ti BOOST.

Certainly spend more money on the GPU. A GTX 770 or a GTX 780 are recommended as 3D is very demanding in games.

Cut down to a i5-4670k (CPU) and to a CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W (PSU), it will give you a lot more money for the GPU and will still be compatible with the rest of the system. :)

You have an Nvidia card, and that monitor appears to be an HD3D monitor. They aren't compatible. It may be possible to get it to work with a hack, or Nvidia 3DTV play, but there could be issues there. I also can't seem to find much info on the monitor other than a video, which shows it to be a passive system.

Nvidia uses 3D Vision. It is not a matter of how powerful it is or not, they just don't natively use HD3D. Nvidia 3DTV play can get some systems to work that are not 3D Vision, but it is a bit of a hit and miss thing.

so what should i do?

If you want to use an HD3D monitor, you want an AMD card. You may also consider getting a different monitor, one that is 3D Vision 2 compatible. This would also give you 120hz 2D gaming.

If you already have the parts, give this app a try:

I was just looking up those monitors on Amazon, and it appears they are designed to work with the PS3, Xbox 360 and Bluray. It doesn't even mention it being HD3D compatible. It may not work on anything. Perhaps you should look at different monitors.

Something like this:
or this: (you have to buy 3D Vision 2 kit separately with this one)

According to this review, it can be made to work, though it is not a professional review, it does appear to be from someone with 1st hand experience:

You should read the 1st two reviews on the page. They give you some of the Pros and Cons.

Well, as was mentioned, you also get half the resolution in 3D (every other row is missing) and in 2D, you can see every other line looks different. Not to mention the Tridef complications. As long as that is ok with you, go for it.

if u think asus monitor u showed me is best buy then its a done deal. i will go for asus like ur suggestion.

I wasn't saying necessarily what is best. Both have draw backs.

3D Vision 2 monitors:
120hz 2D gaming with near 0 motion blur
Full 1080p resolution
Better support with 3D Vision software
Crosstalk/Ghosting, which has been greatly improved with Lightboost, but high contrast areas still show some ghosting.
Flickering may be noticed with some people.
Heavier glasses (3D Vision 2 version is much improved).

Passive Monitors like the one you are looking at:
No crosstalk, though ghosting can still occur with high enough contrast.
Light weight glasses that are cheap.
Much cheaper
Every other vertical row is not seen
60hz gaming only
in 2D mode, you can see a difference on every other line.
Text in 3D is awful as a result of every other row being hidden.

Both systems are pluses and minuses. I personally think the 3D Vision 2 monitor would be better, and most seem to agree, but not everyone.

ok i guess asus u showed is better so i will go with the monitor u showed.
nyways thank you for ur help in deciding.

I'm apologize for the confusion at first. There are so many different compatibility issues with these non 3D Vision systems, it is hard to navigate.

So if you do go with the Asus, which sounds good to me, you will want to have a couple links to better serve you:
Fix games which don't normally work well in 3d:
Lightboost trick for near 0 motion blur in 2D:

Note: The BenQ tends to get better reviews due to better colors, the Asus may need some serious color calibration done. There are tools to help you do this.

Asus VG278H 27-inch 120Hz gaming monitor; blended with an NVidia GTX770 is the way to go.

This monitor is AMAZING in 3D. Utterly AMAZING.

Just WOW.


...........and I have seen all the Sony 4K 3D passive Tvs you can shake a stick at, ..............this monitor is far better than any I have ever seen........maybe because it is new type (brighter) Active shutter....which is FAR BETTER than my 3D Nvidia laptop (2010 3D type)...

I can also use my old 3D glasses on this monitor in 3D (as the monitor only comes with one new type set of 3D glasses). They work great with it (strangely [as they are supposed to be darker?]).
